How could changing your spinal alignment help you from suffering the debilitating effects of allergies? For starters, we need to understand what allergies are. Allergic Rhinitis refers to an unusual inflammation response by the body when we come in contact with allergens (microscopic particles that people commonly have a negative reaction to) such as:

  • Pollen
  • Ragweed
  • Pet Dander
  • Dust

People that aren’t as sensitive to these particles won’t have any reaction, meanwhile, those that are sensitive respond with a variety of unfortunate symptoms. This inflammation reaction generally causes symptoms like:

  • Runny nose
  • Itching
  • Watery eyes
  • Sore throat
  • Cough

So, how does chiropractic come into play?

This is a great question with a fascinating response. The nerves in your body send a signal to your brain that causes us to feel sensations like physical pain and itching. These nerves send signals to our brain to itch or wince in pain via the spinal cord.

When your vertebrae are misaligned, the signal could become skewed and a miscommunication may be the result. The theory is that if we can realign the spine, we might be able to stop this miscommunication from occurring that causes the body to overreact to environmental allergens.

If you’re suffering from allergies, Dr. Block is a chiropractor in Smithtown that can provide you with relief.
