Allergies & Asthma
Asthma and many allergic reactions are caused by a hypersensitive immune system and/or respiratory system, they fall comfortably within the remit of chiropractic care. This is because, for your immune system and respiratory system to function well, they must rely on healthy communication from the brain and the spinal cord.
A misaligned neck can easily cause your nervous system to become imbalanced. When the upper cervical spinal joint is irritated, it can provoke or worsen asthmatic and allergic symptoms. It is quite common, for example, to see victims of accidents involving this part of the spine to experience the onset or deterioration of an allergy such as asthma. Chiropractic may seem like it’s been around forever— but for many people, it’s brand new! Many have yet to discover the natural healing power in their own body that chiropractic can release.
When most people think of an allergy they think of asthma. Asthma and many other allergies can be treated with chiropractic care because they are caused by a hypersensitive immune system and/or respiratory system. To function correctly, these require good communication from the brain and the spinal cord, and a misaligned neck can create an imbalance that degrades this communication. Irritation in the upper cervical spinal joint can sometimes produce or worsen asthma, and it is not unusual for people who’ve suffered trauma to this area to develop asthma where none existed, or to experience a deterioration of a pre-existing condition.
Good News! A doctor of chiropractic can assess your individual circumstances and examine your upper cervical spine to determine if their treatment will benefit your particular allergy. So tell your friends and bring in the whole family to discover chiropractic’s deep healing power. We especially need it today.
