It’s springtime in February! What a winter (or lack thereof) we’ve had in Columbus Indiana. If you suffer from allergies you may be already feeling the strain as the leaves and flowers are starting grow already. However, because chiropractic is a vehicle of natural health care that assists your body to function at its prime level, it is also a viable agent in relieving allergy ailments. Allergy symptoms like runny nose, watery eyes, coughing, and sneezing are an overreactive attempt of your immune system trying to get rid of unwanted particles such as dust, pet dander and the most common annoyance, pollen. Therefore, the ideal situation is to keep your immune system as healthy as possible to combat these unwanted substances. Chiropractic care helps by lifting pressure on the nervous system allowing the immune system to work more adequately. A healthy body is capable of counterbalancing toxic elements in your system, allowing your body to do exactly what it was designed to do.
When there are disruptions in the communication between the brain and the spinal cord (such as misalignments of the neck), the vitality of both your immune and respiratory systems may be compromised. Irritation in the upper cervical joint can exaggerate or even yield allergic and asthmatic-like symptoms. Through manipulation of the joints and soft tissue through chiropractic adjustment, a chiropractor at Family Chiropractic & Wellness can help restore alignment and open the necessary pathways of communication between the brain and spine.
If you are among the over 50 million Americans who suffer from some form of allergies, there may be a solution to help curtail many of your symptoms. Any lurking neck or back misalignments which may be compromising your immune system can be determined by one of the Family Chiropractic & Wellness doctors. Furthermore, because chiropractic is a holistic approach of medicine which differentiates that the human body is healthier and performs at a higher level when all areas of health are taken into account, Family Chiropractic & Wellness can help you determine best practices and eating habits to help keep allergic reactions at bay.
