Alleviate Allergies Through Chiropractic Care
Allergy season effects roughly 35-40 million people in the United States. They suffer from symptoms ranging from coughing and sore throats to watery eyes and running or stuffed noses. The cost to deal with allergies is on the rise. Most Americans will spend money on over the counter allergy relief, but the rest will spend money on doctors visits, prescription medication, and then have to account for time lost at work. In addition to treating symptoms with over the counter and prescription medications, there are other steps which can be taken to boost the immune system and lessen allergic reactions.
Chiropractic care is not normally associated with allergy relief or chronic sinus trouble, but it offers a profound and medically sound method for improving well-being and fending against common, everyday allergies. The strength of both the immune and respiratory systems depends largely on proper communication between the brain and spinal cord to control and coordinate their functions properly. When there are interruptions in this communication such as misalignments of the neck, immunity may be compromised. A chiropractor can help restore alignment and open the necessary pathways of communication between the brain and spine. In addition to promoting a stronger immune system, adjustments may also help regulate the rush of histamine and amount of cortisol produced during high allergy season.
