Most people don’t think about helping their allergies and asthma when they visit their chiropractor. When it comes to alleviating back pain and spinal alignment, chiropractic adjustments are the most effective solution. For those suffering from seasonal allergies or asthma, a chiropractic care visit might be the solution to alleviate some of these symptoms.

Immune System and Chiropractic Care

There is a direct link between the immune system and the nervous system, which often gets overlooked. The nervous system connects to the brain, which sends signals to heal the body when allergies attack the body. Misalignments interfere with the immune system’s ability to send alerts to the brain, thus causing the body not to react effectively when fighting off diseases and sicknesses.

Fighting Allergens

The immune system fights off allergens and any foreign substances that attack the body. This response causes inflammation. When chiropractors align the spine and remove nerve any nerve interference that might be causing pain, this can positively affect the immune system. A well-functioning immune system helps the body deal with unwanted substances like dust, pollution, mold, and pollen, which cause allergies and sickness, leading to depression in some cases. The immune system functions to keep out unwanted foreign substances, and when it is not working correctly, mucus, sinus infections, respiratory infections, and digestive problems can be the result.


For people who have asthma, misalignments can lead to shortness of breath, making them more susceptible to asthma attacks. Chiropractic adjustments that target the upper back will help alleviate these triggers to asthma attacks.

To have the most effective treatment, regular readjustments and evaluations with a chiropractor will ensure that the body can function optimally. Routine visits will ensure that the immune system and the nervous system work as smoothly as possible, with no interferences like misalignments in the spine to hinder the body’s healing capabilities.

Support Healthy Lifestyle

While many people do not realize how effective a chiropractor can be to alleviate allergies and asthma, chiropractors are among the safest and most natural ways to support the immune system. Evaluating the nervous system should be one of the first steps to relieving allergies and asthma. A successful chiropractic treatment will also require a balanced diet of healthy eating and regular exercise to keep the immune system functioning at its best.
