Chiropractic for An Improved Immune System and Allergy Relief

Written By Spring Chiropractic on June 18, 2019

Woman Suffering from AllergiesResidents of Middleburg know that our city can be a hotspot for allergies, colds, and flu during the season.

We aren’t special in that regard — more than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies.

Common methods of treatment for allergies and colds include over-the-counter medications and prescription drugs. Some people even spend hundreds on costly purification systems for the home.

Want to avoid all that? Chiropractic treatment can help you strengthen your immune system and provide allergy relief. Here’s how it works.

How Chiropractic Care Strengthens Your Immune System

We all know that chiropractic makes us feel better. This feeling of wellness isn’t just about relieving muscular and spinal tension, however.

Chiropractors like Dr. Spring can use spinal manipulation therapy to correct these subluxations, reducing stress on your nervous system and leading to a stronger immune system.

This therapy helps patients during allergy season and the winter when everyday life is dominated by congestion and coughing.

How exactly does this work? There is a direct connection between the nervous system, the immune system, and the brain which controls everything.

Spinal misalignments (also known as subluxations) are known to cause stress and inflammation in the nervous system. In turn, this disrupts neurological pathways and leads to decreased function in the immune system.

Chiropractic Treatment for Allergy Relief?

We already know that spinal subluxations can cause a weakened immune system. But did you know that this, in turn, can cause an increase in allergic reactions?

It can. Luckily, spinal manipulative therapy can help to control the allergic reaction by strengthening neurological pathways and decreasing stress and inflammation in the body.

This holds true not only for hay fever and cedar allergies. Research has shown that people with asthma can also benefit from chiropractic care.
