Allergy Symptoms and Chiropractic Care in Sacramento CA

Chiropractic Sacramento CA Allergies

Sacramento CA Chiropractor helps with allergies

Believe it or not, our Sacramento CA Chiropractor Office has helped patients reduce their allergy symptoms.

Normally we get confused looks from patients when we talk about this.

How can chiropractic care possibly help with allergies?

Well, in this short article, we are going to explain exactly how our chiropractic care can help with allergies and how clinical studies seem to be aligned with the results we have gotten here at Barham Chiropractic.

Spine alignment and allergies

Misaligned spines can impact the nervous system, which may lead to a variety of problems, including allergies. Misalignment of the upper cervical joint can harm the immune system and make allergies worse, so chiropractic manipulation can help restore the communication path for the spine and brain to help strengthen the body's immune system. Chiropractic treatments help balance the body so that it can combat allergies better naturally.

Chiropractic adjustments can also help regulate histamine and cortisol levels in the body, curbing histamine production, which is responsible for many allergy symptoms. Cortisol plays a vital role in the immune response, so regulating both these levels together can help treat allergies more effectively.

Spine alignment and the immune system

The spine affects nearly everything in the body, including the immune system, which impacts how the body reacts to allergens. An unaligned spine can affect the immune system, causing it to malfunction. Therefore, a chiropractor can help relieve the symptoms of allergies by improving the alignment of the spine.

Chiropractic care can help essentially help allergies indirectly as it improves communication between the spine, brain, and other parts of the body, leading to better immunity and a reduced reaction to stressors.

How long does it take for chiropractic care to help with allergies?

At Barham Chiropractic, we have had patients experience improvement in allergy symptoms as soon as their first visit. Unfortunately, others needed several chiropractic adjustments before experiencing relief.

The amount of time it takes for a corrective care plan to help with allergies can vary depending on several factors, such as:

  • The severity of the allergies
  • The individual's response to treatment
  • The specific techniques used by the chiropractor
  • The cause of allergy symptoms

Some allergies are caused by factors that chiropractic care can not correct. For this reason, we encourage anyone needing chiropractic care to have a thorough assessment and remember that chiropractic care is not a cure for allergies, but rather a complementary approach to managing symptoms and improving your overall health, wellness, and longevity. Our patients often benefit from ongoing chiropractic care but for severe cases, it should be used as a part of a comprehensive allergy treatment plan.


Chiropractic care can help treat allergies naturally and effectively by correcting misalignments in the spine and improving the alignment of the spine, brain, and other parts of the body, leading to a better immune response and reducing the impact of stressors on the body. Chiropractic care can also help regulate histamine and cortisol levels in the body, which can curb histamine production and alleviate many allergy symptoms.
