How Chiropractic Can Help With Pregnancy Allergies

Allergies are kinda theeeee worst. I mean, if you know, you know — for so many people around the world, allergies get in the way of an awful lot. From ragweed to grass to literal air, allergies affect well over 50 million people in the United States alone.


But, what if I could tell you that chiropractic care can help with allergies?


It’s true! Allergies, at their worst, are truly an immune dysfunction. When you have an allergy (think: itchy eyes in the spring), your immune system is getting upset at something specific in the air. That immune system upset can be improved when all of your pathways are clear — and that’s where chiropractic care comes into play.


Wait… chiropractic can help with allergies?

Okay, let’s get really, really specific here. Your spine holds the key to everything else in your body. After all, your spine and your nervous system are the master control centers that keep everything moving and grooving. When your spine has areas of interference (we call these subluxations), not everything can move and groove as optimally and as smoothly as it needs to.


Now, can chiropractic completely heal allergies? No. But, being able to adjust your spine and clear your pathways can help you seriously relieve allergy symptoms — and the immune-boosting components of chiropractic in itself can also be a huge help. While there’s no one-size-fits-all solution, investing in chiropractic care can genuinely impact your wellness.


How chiropractic can help with pregnancy allergies

Allergy symptoms tend to plague pregnant women at a really high level — in fact, around ⅓ of pregnant mamas find that pregnancy tends to worsen allergy symptoms. Pregnancy rhinitis is also something we see consistently in pregnant women, too — meaning that a lot of the pregnant women we see tend to have nasal congestion, runny nose, sneezes, and even coughs during pregnancy.


Now, when you’re pregnant, your immune system is all over the place — and we definitely recommend staying away from non-essential medicine (like allergy meds) while you’re growing a baby. It’s why chiropractic care can be so helpful. By adjusting the spine and clearing subluxations in the spine, we can restore alignment to everything from the immune system to the sinuses. Plus, chiropractic care during pregnancy helps with a lot more than just allergies. From low back pain to prepping the body for labor, chiropractic care during pregnancy can completely add a new level of comfort, wellness, and health to your pregnancy.


What you need to know about chiropractic care for allergies

When you look for scientific studies on the benefits of chiropractic care for allergies, they’re inconclusive — but that doesn’t mean that the connection isn’t there. Our society tends to push towards non-holistic forms of treatment for allergies and illness, and it’s the same way with ignoring the impact of things like chiropractic care. However, if you’re suffering from allergies, you may be shocked by the impact.

At Thrive Family Chiropractic, we’ll help you with everything from spinal adjustments and nervous system optimization to setting you up with a holistic care plan and approach that will help you minimize allergy symptoms as well. Come see us today — you can request your appointment here.
