Allergies and Chiropractic Care: Breaux Bridge and Lafayette, Louisiana
There are a growing number of people who are affected by allergies with current estimates being between 10 and 30 percent of the population. The cost associated with allergies can really add up when you calculate the number of hours missed from work, prescriptions and doctors visits. Treating allergies through chiropractic care can reduce the symptoms of natural allergies by strengthening the body and its immune system in order for it to perform at its highest level. From sneezes to pressure headaches and food allergies, chiropractic care for allergies can provide a much needed remedy.
How Does Chiropractic Help With Allergies?
The strength of the immune and respiratory systems depends a lot on there being proper communication between the brain and the spinal cord. When someone has interruptions in this communication, immunity can be compromised. Having adjustments and strengthening the central nervous system resolves tension pain; especially in the neck and back that can be associated with headaches from allergies. In addition to resolving pain and pressure, chiropractic can “activate” your body’s natural immune system to respond and become stronger overtime with consistent treatment. Chiropractic can help to balance out the nervous system to respond appropriately to allergic reactions and early symptoms, resulting in the reaction being less severe.
