Because asthma and many allergic reactions are caused by a hypersensitive immune system and/or respiratory system, they fall comfortably within the remit of chiropractic care. This is because, for your immune system and respiratory system to function well, they must rely on healthy communication from the brain and the spinal cord.
A misaligned neck can easily cause your nervous system to become imbalanced. When the upper cervical spinal joint is irritated, it can provoke or worsen asthmatic and allergic symptoms. It is quite common, for example, to see victims of accidents involving this part of the spine to experience the onset or deterioration of an allergy such as asthma.
A doctor of chiropractic can assess your individual circumstances and examine your upper cervical spine to determine if their treatment will benefit your particular allergy.
