It may seem unusual, but your immune system and nervous system are directly connected. Allergy season sends your immune system into overdrive. Your nervous system is then thrown off its game too. Your Lindenhurst chiropractors have the solution: spinal adjustments. Realigning your spine increases your overall body function.
Your spine hosts your nervous system, connecting your brain to every aspect of your body. Communication flows through your spine. That’s why spinal misalignment or subluxation, especially in the neck area, needs corrective treatment. A spinal adjustment or manipulation unblocks pathways caused by bulging or herniated discs or even pinched nerves. Treatment heightens your immune system while relieving any joint or soft tissue pain.
Stress often times takes a physical toll on your body. It plays a central role in springtime hypersensitivity to allergens. Continual stress weakens your adrenal glands. Your body will struggle to control any allergic reactions. Realigning the spine reduces cortisol, the stress hormone.
Changing up your exercise routine and dietary habits also improves your allergic reactions. Improving your respiratory system by working out strengthens your body against environmental allergens. Your respiratory system is the main victim of allergies, containing your nose, throat, ears, and lungs.
