Although you may not realize it, asthma and allergies are often treated by a chiropractor. It has been found that the cause of many allergic and asthmatic reactions is a hypersensitivity of the immune system. Research has shown that normal brain function and control of the spinal cord is what the immune system relies on to coordinate properly.
Many asthma suffers have experienced some sort of trauma in their lives such as head injury, falls, or auto accidents which could have very easily caused an injury to the upper cervical spine. An injury to this area of the body will misalign your neck therefore causing an imbalance of the nervous system functions. Your chiropractor can treat injuries like this and help you to reduce your allergies or asthma reactions.
