Allergies Treatments in Garden City, MI
Spring is upon us, and for many that means allergies. Sinus headaches, hives, and itchy eyes reign, and while we may enjoy the nice weather and beautiful scenery it comes with a price. Taking allergy medication is always an option. However, this isn’t always enough for the allergy sufferer. For others, taking medication isn’t their preferred method of treatment.
What Are Allergies?
An allergy is an oversensitive immune system response to something in the body that is typically considered harmless. For instance, pollen, dust, or animal dander. When the body comes into contact with the allergen, it activates the immune system to clear it—causing the typical allergy symptoms.
Chiropractic care is a proven method of treatment for the symptoms of many conditions including seasonal allergies treatments. Studies have shown that the use of chiropractic treatments reduced allergy symptoms in sufferers, and improved their overall quality of life. Patients experienced less of the uncomfortable symptoms associated with allergies. This allieviation led to greater freedom to experience the world around them without suffering.
How Does It Work?
Nerve endings between our spine and brain act as pathways so that messages from our immune and nervous systems can reach the brain. When these nerve endings become blocked by misalignment, messages can’t get through properly. With chiropractic care, the body can become re-aligned, or adjusted, to unblock the pathways. This unclogging allows messages to reach the brain and can help the body use its own defense mechanisms to process allergens properly.
