Get Relief From Asthma & Allergies

A chiropractor’s job is to ensure a patient’s spine is in alignment. Research has shown that there’s a direct link between the immune system and the nervous system. When a chiropractor adjusts the spine, they remove nerve interference, which can improve immune system function.

When the immune system is functioning as it should, it can help prevent infection and disease and essentially improves your overall health.

Chiropractic Care and Allergies

When the immune system functions appropriately, it’s able to handle the invasion of foreign substances, such as pollen, dust, and pollution, heading them off before they’re able to do serious damage. To control and coordinate immune system function, there must be strong communication between the spinal cord and the brain. A misalignment in the neck can disrupt communication and the result is a compromised immune system. Manipulating the soft tissues and the joints through chiropractic treatment can restore alignment, allowing the clear path of communication that’s needed for healthy immune system function.

All types of allergies are the result of the immune system’s exaggerated response to substances it identifies as foreign. When a person suffers from allergies, their immune system produces the immunoglobulin E antibody, in response to foods, pet dander, pollen, and other substances. This causes the common symptoms of an allergic reaction.

Symptoms of Allergies

Regular chiropractic adjustments can help regulate the rush of cortisol and histamine during allergy season. Histamines begin the process that pushes allergens out of the body, causing the following symptoms:

  • Itchy eyes
  • Teary eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Sneezing
  • Headache
  • Pain or tenderness around the cheeks, forehead, eyes
  • Swollen eyes
  • Facial swelling

To combat environmental and seasonal allergies, chiropractic treatment often involves a multifaceted approach. At Cornerstone Chiropractic Health Center, we provide treatment to help lessen and eliminate allergy problems. At an initial evaluation, your chiropractor can identify any vertebral subluxations in the spine that may impede nerve signals, disrupting immune system health.

Allergy treatment may also focus on other problem areas. For example, allergies and sinusitis often go hand in hand. By correcting subluxations of the facial bones and skull, a chiropractor can open the sinuses, reducing pressure and allowing clear pathways. These techniques are also used to treat headaches, which can be caused by environmental or seasonal allergies.

Chiropractic Treatment for Asthma Sufferers

Misalignments in the upper back are common in people who suffer from asthma. A misalignment in this area may cause a short circuit between the brain and the muscles, in addition to shortness of breath. A chiropractor will address this misalignment, which can help reduce or eliminate some of the underlying issues that are related to asthma complications.

Symptoms of Asthma

Common asthma symptoms may include:

  • Shortness of breath
  • Changes in lung function
  • Daytime fatigue
  • Lethargy
  • Trouble sleeping

When a person is having an asthma attack, the lining in the bronchial tubes becomes inflamed, reducing airflow. This will cause breathlessness and wheezing. While a chiropractor doesn’t formally treat asthma, adjustments of the thoracic spinal segments can have a positive impact on nerve synapsis, improving bronchial tube and lung function.


Post-Treatment Care

If you suffer from asthma or allergies, you must seek regular wellness adjustments to improve your body’s ability to heal itself. After your first appointment, your chiropractor will create a personalized care plan that includes recommended treatment frequency, and lifestyle changes that can help to improve immune system function.
