Allergies/Asthma

By Dr. Dan Van Roon • August 31st, 2010

Many allergic and asthmatic reactions are caused by hypersensitivity of the immune system and/or respiratory system. Researchers have found that the immune and respiratory systems depend on normal communication from the brain and spinal cord to control and coordinate their functions properly.

Therefore, if your neck is misaligned, it could cause an imbalance in your nervous system function. This upper cervical spinal joint irritation could possibly produce or exaggerate asthmatic and allergic symptoms. For example; many asthma and allergy sufferers experienced traumas such as head injuries, auto accidents, or falls which could have injured their upper cervical spines. The good news is that we can perform an upper cervical examination to determine if chiropractic care may reduce your allergic or asthmatic reactions. Although chiropractic does not specifically treat asthma/allergies, oftentimes alignment and mobility improvement of the spine allows the body to function better.
