Changing seasons sometimes result in people being plagued with allergies. Rather than treat your allergies with medication, you might need a visit to a chiropractor in Lexington, KY.  Chiropractors may be able to help you alleviate allergy symptoms. Here are just a few of the benefits you could enjoy from seeking chiropractic care.

Weakened Immune System

Allergies occur due to a weakened immune system, which can cause it to overreact to substances that would not otherwise pose a problem. Pressure on the nervous system also makes it more likely you will suffer an allergy flare-up. Chiropractic treatment can improve both your immune and nervous systems by eliminating pressure on vital nerves and organs that can be caused by spinal misalignment. As such, chiropractic treatment works to resolve the cause of your allergies rather than just treating the symptoms.

Improved Respiratory Function

Proper functioning of the respiratory system requires good communication between the brain and spinal cord. Misalignments in the neck can interrupt signals between the two and lead to difficulty breathing. Adjustments to realign the neck and spinal cord often provide incredible relief to allergy sufferers.

Regulates Histamine

Proper alignment of the spine and neck also helps the body better regulate the production of histamine, which is a chemical released by the body whenever it senses your immune system is being attacked. The release of histamine can result in symptoms such as sneezing, itching and watering eyes, and a runny nose. When histamine production is high, you may experience allergy-like symptoms, even when no irritant is actually present. If you're suffering from allergies, the answer isn't may not be more medication. Contact us today to find out if chiropractic care can help.
