RALEIGH, NC, May 01, 2017 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Dr. Melissa Roccos, Chiropractor at Elite Chiropractic Centers of Clayton, supports her patients during the spring with chiropractic spinal treatment. During the spring season most people are looking forward to longer days with blooming flowers and sprouting leaves. However, there is the unfortunate category of people to whom spring means sneezing, itchy eyes and a running nose.
Hay fever is a common occurrence in this period of the year. This condition makes a person suffer as the body becomes hypersensitive to the high levels of pollen in the air they are breathing. This condition has symptoms that are disturbing and irritating to these people hence making their life extremely uncomfortable and miserable.
If somebody says that they have an allergy, it means, they react negatively to something that is considered to be ordinary to other people. An allergic reaction to pollen is characterized by symptoms such as irritation of the sinuses, breathing difficulties, asthma, and skin reactions.
The human body is designed to fight and reject any intruders automatically. Reactions such as vomiting, sneezing, coughing, and inflammations, are ways that the body uses to expel hazardous substances that are present in the body. In the case of allergies, the body reacts because it views the pollen or spores as being harmful.
When an allergic reaction occurs, the body spontaneously activates cells that have receptors, which determine the benefit or the extent of harm that can be caused by certain substances. When these receptors sense anything harmful, histamines are released. These histamines activate the body to get rid of the foreign substances. This reaction is where a person will start experiencing coughing, sneezing, and inflammation.
Most people are surprised to learn that chiropractic care has many benefits where allergies are concerned.
"We work with many patients who are suffering from allergies this time of year," says Dr. Roccos. "My patients are surprised with how significant their allergies are reduced and manageable after several regular vertebral subluxations."
With the whole nervous system synchronized and centralized, dysfunctional movement and misalignment of the vertebra can cause irritation in the spine. This misalignment means abnormal signals are received in the central nervous system. Abnormal signals lead to misinterpretation of the signals being sent hence making an allergy reaction occur.
While vertebral subluxations contribute to the causes of allergic reactions, it is not a cause for all. As such, chiropractic involvement does not work for all allergic reactions. However, a person with allergic reactions should try chiropractic practices to improve their condition.
