Results Show that Chiropractic Care Improves Acute Atopic Eczema

May 19, 2014

Acute atopic eczema is a condition that causes itchiness, blisters, rashes and scaly skin for which there’s no cure. This disorder is often caused by internal conditions, such as allergies, digestive problems and stress. Common treatments to relieve the symptoms of eczema include oral steroid medication and application of a cortisone cream. Due to the chronic nature of this condition and the life altering side effects of continuous steroid use, many people opt to treat eczema from the inside out, using natural measures to improve overall health and removing as many allergens from the home as possible.


It may surprise you to learn that relief from the symptoms of eczema may be as simple as a care plan developed by your chiropractic doctor. Chiropractors focus on natural, drug-free ways to help your body reach its optimal health through spinal adjustments, nutritional counseling and exercises designed specifically for you.

In a case study published by the U.S. National Library of Medicine, chiropractic care for eczema was investigated to determine its effects on a patient suffering from acute atopic eczema. The study took place over seven weeks, and chiropractic adjustments were performed once weekly. In order to determine the effectiveness of chiropractic care, questionnaires were filled out twice a week and visible symptoms were photographed.

The result of the case study showed a marked improvement in the patient’s eczema symptoms. Not only did photographs provide evidence of the improvement, the patient also reported far less discomfort from itching and burning sensations. Overall, the patient suffered less frequent outbreaks. Since chiropractic adjustments relieve nerve interference caused by subluxations, your body is better able to heal itself and defend against stressors that cause a variety of ailments. It’s safe to say that a chiropractic care plan for eczema can only benefit those who suffer from this condition.

Here’s the bottom line in chiropractic care — if you’re alive and have subluxations, you should at least seek chiropractic care to have them located and removed.
