Chiropractic adjustments at first appear very consequential to the joints and the bones in the back and spine. It is very true that if your spine is out of alignment, then a chiropractor is specially trained to diagnose and treat this problem. But what must be understood is that the back is such a nexus of vital muscles and organs, and is an integral part of the body’s central nervous system. These are the same pathways that transmit information on whether or not the body considers something harmful enough to elicit an allergic reaction. If the back is misaligned, this can eventually produce an abnormal focal irritation in the vertebrae, which will, in turn, affect the signals being interpreted by the nervous system.
In some cases, this may cause the body to misinterpret this information and even produce an allergic reaction where none is needed. When your spine and back are well maintained through regular chiropractic care, this optimizes the circulation of blood and nutrients, which may allow your body to handle or neutralize allergic reactions better than usual. Because there is such a wide variance of allergies and reactions, current medical research does not guarantee that chiropractic will categorically relieve allergy symptoms. But in many studies patients are reporting results due to the improved flexibility and boost to the nervous system.
