When Allergies Invade, Your Chiropractor May Be Helpful


Anyone who has had allergies as a child or an adult, can give you a few dozen stories about the misery and the solutions that have helped, while others failed.

I remember a childhood full of itchy eyes and endless sneezes as I reacted to pollen. Being an outdoor kid, this was an ongoing challenge to solve. A co-worker of mine had a batch of allergies, and always managed to catch whatever cold or virus was rolling through the office. He lost more and more days at work as he struggled with this circular condition. So what causes our allergies to be so bad?

What’s Involved

Reactions triggered by the immune system to allergens can range from sneezing, coughing, hives and rashes to life threatening seizure and anaphylactic shock. These symptoms occur as your immune system reacts to protect the body. The allergens involved can be food, dust, pollen, cat hair, etc., whatever agent that the body rejects.

Your Chiropractor May Be Able to Provide Ongoing Help

Helping to lessen the impact and the number of allergy flare ups can be invaluable, keeping a child’s life more normal and helping adults attend to everyday tasks. The chiropractor may be able to help with ways to cut the intensity and number of allergy attacks. The initial visit to the chiropractor will include spinal adjustments and a review of daily schedules, along with a medical history including a rundown of the allergic reactions.

Beefing Up the Immune System

When the spine is misaligned the nervous system suffers and can not function as well as it should, impacting the immune system. The chiropractor’s alignment of the spine may help the immune system to work much better, and go head to head with infections and handle allergic reactions better. Instead of over reacting, a stronger immune system can help lighten the allergy load. Ongoing visits may help to level out the allergies and also provide energy boosts. Making the daily difference and reducing the power of the allergies can be a major plus for everyone. Children miss less days at school, and mom's and dads find their workday and home schedules greatly improved.

Don’t wait if allergies are out of control for you or your family. Along with regular doctor visits, your chiropractor may help to get everything back under control.
