For many, the go-to solution for the itchy eyes, runny noses and incessant sneezing that comes along with allergies is to pop an antihistamine, grab a box of tissues and hope for the best.

While you may feel helpless in combatting an allergy, which is a hypersensitive reaction to a substance, there is another means of potential relief that you should consider, and it involves chiropractic care.

Your immune system’s job is to remove harmful substances from your body, resulting in inflammation, sneezing, coughing and even vomiting in an effort for your body to expel the foreign invaders.

An allergic reaction occurs when your immune system is triggered by a substance that is typically considered harmless. While the substance may be harmless, your body’s interpretation of it as harmful causes the allergic response.

One theory of the causes of allergic reactions deals with the nervous system. The nervous system interprets the information around you, and if it is dysfunctional, it could cause the information coming into the nervous system to be altered. This would make you more vulnerable to allergic reactions, because this can cause your immune system to just overreact and trigger a multitude of symptoms.

This is where chiropractic care can help. Chiropractic adjustments have proven beneficial effects on the nervous system. The misalignment of vertebra in the spine can lead to irritation, causing abnormal signals to transmit through the spine to the central nervous system. In turn, this can affect the input of messages into the nervous system, causing them to be interpreted irregularly and leading to an allergic reaction.

Many chiropractic patients have reported the reduction of allergy symptoms following adjustments. Though adjustments might not be able to help in all cases, you could be one patient whose allergies benefit from chiropractic care.
