Getting My Back Fixed Once And For All

After suffering with terrible back pain for years, I knew that I couldn't go on living with the trouble. I was tired of being tired all the time and having trouble getting in and out of bed and cars, so I decided that it was time to meet with a licensed chiropractor. My experience was incredible. The doctor was able to go through, fix my back, and resolve most of my back pain in a single visit. It was incredible to feel the difference after it was over. I want everyone out there to understand the benefits of chiropractic care, which is why I made this blog.

Tired Of Dealing With Seasonal Allergies? Go See Your Chiropractor!

If you suffer from seasonal allergies to pollen, mold spores, pet dander, and the like, you're probably tired of dealing with the symptoms. Allergy meds might helps somewhat, but they also cause side effects like drowsiness. Keeping allergens out of your home is a constant battle, too. Who really wants to vacuum every day or give up their beloved pet? If you're tired of dealing with allergies in this manner, perhaps it's time to try another route: visiting the chiropractor.

What does adjusting your spine have to do with treating allergies?

At first, the idea that adjusting your spine has anything to do with the sneezing you experience when you encounter a cat or some dust seems preposterous. But, there's a relationship between spinal misalignment and allergy symptoms. When your vertebrae are out of place, they can put pressure on the nerves passing through them. Some of these nerves control the immune system. If your spine is out of alignment and pressing on these immune-regulating nerves, that pressure prevents the immune system from working properly. Instead of doing its job and protecting you from things that are actually dangerous, like bacteria and viruses, it over-reacts to non-pathogenic particles like pet dander and dust – and you get allergy symptoms.

By putting your vertebrae back in alignment, your chiropractor relieves excess pressure on your nerves. As a result, your immune system is allowed to work properly, and your allergy symptoms should subside.

What can you expect when you see your chiropractor about your allergies?

When you visit your chiropractor and tell him or her about your allergy symptoms, he or she will spend some time analyzing the alignment of your spine.  You might be asked to bend or move in certain directions. Then, you will be asked to lie face-down on the treatment table. Your chiropractor will use his or her hands to gently place your vertebrae back in alignment. You may also be shown some exercises or movements to do at home in order to keep your spine in line.

You will probably need to return to your chiropractor for several subsequent treatments. Your allergy symptoms won't disappear overnight. When your spine has been out of line, it can cause some soft-tissue inflammation that also puts pressure on the nerves that regulate your immune system. As your chiropractor works with you over a period of several months to keep your spine in alignment, this inflammation should dissipate, and your allergy symptoms should slowly lessen. Every situation is different, and your chiropractor can let you know how often you should be treated and how long it may take to see a significant improvement.
