How Chiropractic Care Can Help Alleviate Allergies and Asthma Symptoms
One common question I get asked is if chiropractic care can help people with allergies and asthma. I’ve heard many patients tell me they improve with chiropractic care, and research supports these anecdotal reports. Why not give it a try!
One research review of 179 papers concluded, “Evidence from controlled studies and usual practice supports chiropractic care (the entire clinical encounter) as providing benefit to patients with asthma, cervicogenic vertigo, and infantile colic. Evidence was promising for potential benefit of manual procedures for children with otitis media [earaches] and elderly patients with pneumonia. “

Just How Might Chiropractic Help with Allergies and Asthma
- Improved Immune System Function – Chiropractic adjustments can help improve immune system function by removing interference in the nervous system. When your nervous system functions better, your body adapts better.
- Reduced Inflammation – Chiropractic care can help reduce inflammation in the body, which goes hand-in-hand with allergies. This can lead to a reduction in allergy symptoms such as congestion, sneezing, and itchy eyes.
- Improved Breathing – Chiropractic adjustments can help improve lung function by reducing tension in the chest and improving rib cage mobility.
As you can see, chiropractic care can be a beneficial addition to traditional allergy treatments and can help improve the overall health and well-being of individuals suffering from asthma or allergies.
