Chiropractic May Alleviate Allergies and Immune Conditions

Chiropractic May Alleviate Allergy Symptoms

Did you know that our immune and nervous systems are linked? This relationship explains why chiropractic care can reduce and improve a wide variety of problems, including allergies and immune deficiencies.

Recent research following a 5 year-old patient confirmed that chiropractic care may alleviate suffering caused from allergies and other immune issues.

The patient had been born five weeks prematurely. Since birth, she had suffered from recurrent respiratory infections, a chronic cough, repeated ear infections and constipation. Because of these problems and others, she was diagnosed as immuno-deficient and took a variety of medicines for allergies and asthma, including frequent rounds of antibiotics.

A chiropractor examined her and discovered vertebral subluxations, or structural shifts in her spine. These shifts contributed to her abnormal posture, decreased spinal range of motion, muscle spasms, neck and back pain, and a loss of curvature in her neck.

With everything we know about the relationship between the nervous and immune systems, chiropractic makes perfect sense in the case of autoimmune disorders and allergies. In fact, chiropractic is not treating the allergies or immune dysfunction but re-establishing normal neurological function which benefits the immune system of the patient and allows the body to heal.

During her course of chiropractic care, the child’s allergy and asthma symptoms improved, she was sick less often, she slept better, and she missed fewer days of school because of illness. Her chiropractic treatments also eliminated her neck and back pain and improved her posture and the curve of her neck. Eventually, she stopped taking all medications except for a single inhaler.

If your child is suffering from allergies, asthma or other immune-related issues, consider chiropractic care as an option for treatment and prevention.
