Allergy is a disease that is mostly treated with chiropractic care. Many allergic and asthmatic reactions are caused by the hypersensitivity of the immune system and respiration system. An allergic response occurs when the immune system antibodies identifies a harmless substance like tree pollen as an invader. As the immune system attempts to protect your body from the foreign substance, antibodies bind to allergen. The immune system releases a chemical that leads to allergic symptoms and signs such as runny nose itchy reactions, skin reactions and nasal congestion.
Asthma sufferers experience a battle in their airways. As a result those airways become inflamed, making those people sensitive to different inhalants such as dust and tree pollen. Asthma sufferers may experience asthma symptoms seasonally the same way those who suffer from allergy do. Asthma symptoms include a dry cough which includes panting. An asthma sufferer also experiences difficulty in breathing and chest tightness. For the asthma sufferers, their symptoms usually become worse during the night. People suffering from asthma may also experience worse symptoms due to extreme weather conditions.
Parents should watch for children whose breathing may be louder and quicker than normal breathing. They should also watch for changes in their children’s play habits as strenuous activities are harder for children suffering from asthma.
Researchers have found that the immune and respiratory systems get communication from the spinal cord and brain to coordinate and control their functions properly. This means that if your neck is misaligned it will cause an imbalance in your nervous system function. The upper cervical spinal joint irritation exaggerates asthmatic and allergic symptoms. Most of the people who suffer from asthma and allergy have at one time experienced traumas such as auto accidents, head injuries or falls that might have injured their upper cervical spines.
