The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming… and you’re sneezing. It’s allergy season.
The telltale runny noses and itchy eyes prevent millions of us from stopping to smell the flowers. Allergies cause the body to become hypersensitive to pollen and other environmental substances. They cause several irritating symptoms that can make your life miserable.
There’s another theory that says allergic reaction are interpretations of your environment.
The beneficial effects of chiropractic adjustments on the nervous system are well documented, therefore it’s no surprise that many patients report reduced allergy symptoms when treated regularly by a chiropractor.
This is where things can get pretty technical, but basically, vertebra misalignment may cause focal irritation in the spine, which can create an abnormal signal received by the central nervous system. When this happens, an allergic reaction may result.
Although scientific research shows chiropractic adjustments do not cause an improvement in ALL allergy cases, they’re definitely beneficial for some patients.
There are many causes for patients’ hypersensitivity, but vertebral subluxation is one of many potential causes. If it’s the cause of your allergy symptoms, a chiropractor may be a powerful tool in fighting your symptoms.
