The birds are singing, the bees are starting to buzz again, and the days are getting longer, which can only mean one thing: spring is finally here. While spring is a welcome season that brings on a sense of rejuvenation and regrowth, this is also a time when allergy sufferers throughout Littleton begin stocking up on boxes of kleenex, antihistamines, and eye drops.

The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America reports that allergies are one of the most chronic diseases affecting people of all ages and walks of life. Seasonal allergies here in Colorado are among the most common causes of allergy symptoms like:

  • Coughing
  • Sneezing
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Runny nose
  • Scratchy throat
  • Sinus pressure
  • Headache

Today, your friendly wellness team at Arne Wellness Center will look at some of the ways chiropractic care and other treatments can help relieve seasonal allergy symptoms.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Allergies

Pollen, grass, dust mites, mold, weeds, and pet dander are some of the common triggers for seasonal springtime allergies. Here’s how chiropractic can keep your symptoms at bay.

Strengthen Your Immune System

When the immune system is functioning as it should, it can more effectively keep allergy triggers from causing all those symptoms that can make daily life a real downer. Routine chiropractic adjustments can help keep your immune system strong, as the immune system and central nervous system are intricately linked. Keeping your spine aligned keeps the lines of communication between these two systems open for optimal wellness to fight off seasonal allergies.

Manage Stress Hormones

For those who suffer from allergies, they typically have weaker adrenal glands. As a result, their bodies tend to have a harder time regulating allergic reactions to pollens, grass, pollutants, pet dander, and other airborne allergens. Spinal manipulations align the spine to keep the nervous system functioning as it should, while also regulating the amount of cortisol the body produces naturally, thereby keeping allergic reactions under control.
