An allergic reaction is an immune response triggered by your body when a substance that is considered potentially harmful is introduced.
Since the beneficial effects of chiropractic adjustments on the nervous system are well documented, it is not surprising many chiropractic patients report a reduction of allergy symptoms when treated regularly for vertebral subluxations.
Joint fixations or dysfunctional movements of vertebra can cause a focal irritation in the spine, which then creates an abnormal signal received by the central nervous system. When this aberrant signal occurs along the same pathway required for the input of normal environmental messages, the body may not interpret the information correctly. When your immune response is triggered incorrectly, an allergic reaction can result. While this direct connection is not yet fully explained by research, many case studies report relief of allergy symptoms as well as decreased sensitivity on allergy testing (blood tests and prick tests) after utilizing the techniques.
A few techniques our office uses that have allowed our patients to report a decrease in allergy symptoms include:
