Do you have seasonal allergies? Chiropractic care can help!

In case you didn’t know, allergy season is definitely in full swing!


It can be hard to find relief and at this point you may have gone through all the over the counter anti-histamines you can find with little to no relief but we have good news!

Chiropractic care can help. 

Here’s how: 

Allergies (seasonal and otherwise) occur because the immune system overreacts to a foreign substance. The nervous system regulates immune function and when functioning properly, the immune system creates antibodies to defend against harmful foreign substances. When under-functioning, the immune system detects non-harmful allergens in the body and believes they are harmful even though they are not. The body then creates those same antibodies which cause cause the allergic response. 

Chiropractic care fits into this picture because subluxations or misalignments in the spine (specifically near the base of the head) can cause interference with normal nervous system functioning, and in turn your immune response. This interference leaves you more vulnerable to allergens. 

Finding and correcting these misalignments, re-opens the essential pathways between the spine and the brain that the nervous system relies on for optimal immune function.

If you or anyone you know is suffering from seasonal allergies, we can help you weather the season! Come on by for an adjustment today!
