According to “The American Chiropractor,” chiropractic care is not a direct form of treatment for allergies. However, regular adjustments help boost your immune system. A better-functioning immune system decreases your chance of allergy-related illnesses such as sinus infections. Chiropractic care is also designed to allow your body to heal itself from diseases. Overall, chiropractic adjustments for allergies purportedly help reduce symptom flare-up.
When you visit your chiropractic office they may offer therapy. Diathermy is a deep penetrating heat, which heats from the inside out. Diathermy helps stimulate blood flow, which increases vitamins and minerals, and removes toxins, resulting in a faster healing process. When done over the sinuses, it may help open sinus passages, and reduce sinus pressure.
