Chiropractic assists the body to be better able to fight against allergies. Chiropractic helps to reduce the frequency and severity of your allergies. Chiropractic does not work like an anti-histamine which is a short term, direct relief from allergies.
Allergies are a reaction by the immune system to an allergen (substances that normally don’t affect people) resulting in coughing, sneezing, hives, congestion, rashes, and in severe cases, anaphylactic shock and seizure. These symptoms are caused by histamines in your immune system which attempt to protect your body against allergens.
When the spine is misaligned, it can impinge on the nervous system within the body. Studies show that the nervous system has an effect on the functionality of your immune system. When the nervous system is under stress and not functioning properly, the immune system does not work at optimal levels. Chiropractors work with the nervous system by aligning the spine to relieve any stress on the nerves. This allows the immune system to work at higher levels, making it easier to fight off infections while simultaneously recognizing allergens. When your immune system recognizes allergens, it will not overreact to them, or in the least not react near as severely to them.
