Seasonal allergies—also called allergic rhinitis or hay fever—is a common condition that causes symptoms such as sneezing, stuffy nose, runny nose, watery eyes and itching of the nose, eyes, or the roof of the mouth. There are plenty of ways to treat these unwanted symptoms, but one century-old treatment method always comes as a surprise: chiropractic care.
Seasonal Allergy Basics
Before diving into chiropractic care for seasonal allergy treatment, it’s important to know what causes seasonal allergies. Seasonal allergies are caused by an overreaction of your immune system to an allergen, typically pollen, which causes an allergic response. Your body releases histamines and other chemicals into your bloodstream causing all those unwanted symptoms.
Chiropractic and Immune System
Research has shown there is a direct link between the nervous and immune systems. When your spine is misaligned, there is a lack of information flowing through the nervous system to the brain, weakening your immune system. Chiropractic care releases stress on the nervous system which allows the immune system to function more effectively and efficiently. This allows your body to better fight off allergens and prevent unwanted allergy symptoms.
Chiropractic Care for Allergies
When you receive chiropractic care from a licensed chiropractor, there will be a major focus on the alignment of your spine, from neck to low back. An aligned spine supports a healthy immune system which keeps it from overreacting to allergens. No overreaction means no extra mucus production and no allergy symptoms.
