Is Allergy Relief Possible with Chiropractic Care?

Spring is in the air, but so are allergens.  If you suffer from allergies, you are not alone.  Nearly 50 million people across the nation are affected by nasal allergies, from young to old.  In fact, over 40% of children experience allergy symptoms, making allergies one of the leading health concerns for children today. If you live in NE Metro Atlanta, then you are no stranger to the misery of allergies.  Springtime in Georgia is sure to bring about many allergies among residents, but you don’t have to be miserable this allergy season with regular visits to NE Metro Atlanta chiropractor.

Methods to Manage Allergy Symptoms

At the first sign of sneezing, itchy, watery eyes, or a runny nose, some might turn to allergy medications, sprays, or creams.  But these aren’t the only ways to manage your allergy symptoms.  Chiropractic care has been known to help many find allergy relief.  It is a safe, natural, and effective method to treat allergies, especially for children.  To see for yourself the incredible benefits of chiropractic care for reducing allergy symptoms, consult with NE Metro Atlanta Chiropractor Dr. Esther Widjaja.

Combat Allergies with Chiropractic Care

Allergies are a result of a hypersensitive reaction to an outside source.  They can manifest themselves in many ways, through itching, sneezing, coughing, or rashes.  A reaction to a certain type of food can also lead to allergy symptoms such as hives or even more serious concerns such as labored breathing.  Your body sees allergies as a threat and thus reacts to the stimulus.  Immune system health is crucial in fighting allergies too, as the immune system will release antibodies to combat allergic reactions.  The immune system and central nervous system go hand-in-hand and directly affect one another.  Spinal misalignments can disrupt communication between the central nervous system and the rest of the body, making your body more susceptible to allergies.  Because chiropractic care with Dr. Widjaja focuses on improving the function of the nervous system through correcting spinal misalignments, it only makes sense to seek chiropractic care to see an improvement in your allergy symptoms.

The Results Speak for Themselves

Whether you suffer from seasonal allergies or food allergies, Dr. Esther Widjaja or Phoenix Chiropractic can help.  Researchers have extensively studied the link between the immune system and the central nervous system, as well as the effectiveness of chiropractic care.  Studies have focused on how regular chiropractic care can decrease allergy symptoms to bring about relief.  One such study looked at the significance between spinal misalignments and allergies like hay fever, asthma, and eczema.  This study found spinal misalignments in all who participated in the study.  With gentle chiropractic adjustments, almost all saw significant improvement in their allergy symptoms.  Another study addressed the severe allergy symptoms of a 7-year-old boy.  As a result of allergies, asthma, and chronic colds, he missed several days of school each year.  With consistent chiropractic care, he was able to go off of his asthma and allergy medication, and he missed no school the following year.
