Asthma & Allergies

Chiropractic care does not treat asthma and allergies. So, why is it that many patients see improvements after getting adjusted? Some research shows there is a connection between the spinal column, nervous system, immune system, and respiratory tract.

The American Academy of Asthma, Allergies, and Immunology (AAAAI) showed 1 in 10 kids are diagnosed with asthma costing the nation $50 billion per year (3,300 per person per year)! In 2012, 9% or 6.6 million children reported hay fever in the past 12 months. Wow, why are our kids so sick? We are here to help you understand the body and the possibilities of why it is responding with asthma and allergies.

Understanding Asthma
According to the AAAAI, “the most common symptom (of asthma) is wheezing. This is a scratchy or whistling sound when you breathe. Other symptoms include:

Little research is present as to why asthma actually exists. Asthma is chronic inflammation of the airways. But why is the chronic inflammation there?

Understanding Allergies
According to AAAAI, allergies are one of the most chronic conditions worldwide. Allergies occur when the immune system reacts excessively to an allergen (substance seen as harmful to the immune system which in most cases are undamaging). When the immune system over-reacts, it creates an influx of the Immunoglobulin E antigen (IgE).  IgE causes other cells to release histamine thus causing an allergic reaction. Common symptoms of allergies include:

Chiro Care
In our chiropractic office we look to see if nerve disturbance is present in the spinal column. At times, patients with asthma and allergies have stress and tension on the nerves related to the respiratory and immune system. If these nerves have disturbance, the function of the nerves typically decreases. A trained chiropractor will find where the stress is on the nervous system (if any) and remove it so nerves can function more optimally.  

Give us a call at 651-653-2190 or email us to see if you have nerve disturbance. We want to help you achieve your health goals!
