Treat Your Allergy Symptoms with Chiropractic

Oviedo Chiropractor Uses Chiropractic Techniques to Treat Seasonal Allergies 


According to the CDC, “allergies affect as many as 60 million people per year in the United States.” Pollen from plants and trees are the most common cause of seasonal allergies. However, there are other airborne allergens such as mold, animal dander and dust that can contribute to allergic reactions. 

Symptoms of seasonal allergies may differ among people, but common symptoms include:

Itchy skin

Itchy nose

Stuffy nose

Red or swollen eyes

Watery eyes


Depending on whether symptoms are severe or mild, many people rely on costly and sometimes dangerous allergy medication to alleviate these common seasonal allergy traits. If you’re looking for an alternative approach, fortunately, chiropractic adjustments are a natural and effective way to treat allergies. To better explain why, first you need to understand how the body functions to fight off airborne allergens. This understanding begins with the nervous system being the communication pathway of the brain and all bodily systems. It is important to note that when the body is exposed to dust, pollen or other allergens, the nervous system is responsible for the communication to the immune system to defend against this problem. An example of a usual reaction to an airborne allergen attacking the body is sneezing or coughing. This is because the act of sneezing and/or coughing is your body’s way of trying to force the allergen out of your system. This allows your immune system to function at optimal capacity and combat against invading airborne allergens. To maintain the communication pathway of the nervous system you need to make sure the spinal column is in proper alignment.

Dr. Ressler, Oviedo chiropractor tells patients that “chiropractic adjustments maintain the spinal joints in correct position. If proper position is not maintained, then pressure can occur on the nerves.” This pressure from misaligned joints causes interruption of the communication between the nervous system and the other systems in your body. When your spine is adjusted back into alignment, the necessary communication from the nervous system to the immune system is restored. When your spine is in alignment, the immune system and other various body systems can respond faster and limit the exposure to pollen, dust, or dander. This prevents these allergens from invading the body and increasing in number. Once an allergen has multiplied inside the body it creates an intensified reaction which will cause your symptoms to continue or become worse. Oviedo chiropractor, Dr. Ressler explains that “chiropractic adjustments correct the spinal misalignment and allow the body to respond quickly to outside allergens and reduce issues related to seasonal allergies.” For that reason, your body is healthier overall when you are in alignment. A healthy functioning body allows you to have superior protection against allergen invaders.
