Attention Allergy Sufferers in Irvine

When most people think about chiropractic, they often think of back pain, headaches and other spine-related health complaints. Yet, we have had many of our patients see their allergy symptoms resolve or significantly improve after beginning their chiropractic care in our practice.

How can that be you ask?

Good question. It’s because the focus of chiropractic care is on the integrity of your nervous system. When the body is burdened by stress, it can create a hypersensitivity to pollen, mold, pet dander and other common elements in our environment. As neurological stress is reduced with a series of chiropractic adjustments, allergies and other symptoms often subside.

But let’s be clear. Chiropractic care isn’t a treatment for allergies! Instead, by reducing nervous system stress along the spine, all manors of aches, pains and symptoms are often able to resolve as the body’s self-healing capacity is restored.

The other approach is to take a drug that suppresses the symptoms your body is creating. While convenient, besides the admonition to “avoid operating heavy machinery,” fooling your body is always a bad idea, whether allergic reactions or migraine headaches.
