Chiropractic Care and Allergies

By Madhusudhan Tammisetti

With the arrival of the new season, individuals throughout the nation are flocking local pharmacies to buy antihistamines and various kinds of medications to alleviate the allergy symptoms that afflict us every year. Running noses, watery eyes, sneezing, and itching are some signs that the allergies have returned.

In developed countries, up to 40 percent of the population has one or the other allergy problem. This steady trend is thought to be caused by environmental factors such as rising global temperatures and increased air pollution. More than $8 billion is spent yearly on medications to treat allergy problems throughout the world.

Allergy medicines may be safe and effective for relieving short-term symptoms. Chiropractic care may be a great alternative for allergy patients who don't want to depend only on medicine. Let's discuss how chiropractic treatment may help with allergy symptoms and see whether it's right for you.


Allergies are immunological reactions to allergens that are hypersensitive. Allergens are anything that comes into touch with your body and to which your body may react adversely. These substances may be present in food, environment, and beverages, and although they may not harm the individual, they may produce an allergic response in another.

Pet dander, bee venom, and pollen are all common allergies. If you're allergic to these substances, the immune system treats it as a pathogen or a potentially hazardous substance and attempts to eliminate it.


A person having an allergy does not necessarily have an instant response when they are in proximity with the allergen. Instead, their immune system may become more sensitive to it, ultimately overreacting to it.

Irritation and inflammation occur when your immune system eventually responds to an allergen. Different allergies cause different effects. The most prevalent signs and symptoms include red eyes, itching, sneezing, cough, nasal congestion, and runny nose.

Chiropractic Care

The close relationship between the neurological system and the immune system is the basis for chiropractic treatment to alleviate allergy symptoms. The body's response to allergens may be managed, and symptoms decrease by improving communication between the spinal cord and the brain.

First, by treating spinal "misalignments," your chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic may improve the immune system. The brain's interaction with the body is often disrupted by these misalignments. Links between the spine and brain may be reopened, and your body's alignment may be restored by manipulating the soft tissue and joints.

Chiropractors may also assist patients with stress management by strengthening their adrenal glands and allowing the body to better manage allergic responses. Because the spinal nerves directly feed the adrenal glands, the quantity of cortisol produced by the body may be controlled by the appropriate alignment of the spine. This may aid in the relief of allergy symptoms.
