Allergies can be relentless. Most reach for their favorite antihistamine or decongestant to help alleviate the symptoms. Others find relief in steroid nasal sprays. Sometimes, it takes a combination of these drugs to do the job. However, while these medications may help symptoms, since they do not address the root cause, allergies continue to occur. To find a lasting solution, one may need to look a little lower than the sinuses.
Why Allergies Happen
Allergies are the body’s way of defending itself against foreign and possibly dangerous invaders. If allergies become severe, however, it can indicate that one’s immune system is working in overdrive to root out toxins. This is often due to improper signals being sent to the brain from the body. One reason this may be happening could be linked to a misalignment in the upper bones of the neck.
Get Help for Allergies Through Proper Spinal Alignment
Here at our Glendale, California office, we understand that the spine must be in proper alignment for the body to work at its optimum. A misalignment in the bones of the neck can cause pressure on the brainstem, and signals being sent to and from the body may become distorted. This can also alter the delicate balance of the head as it relates to the spine. By correcting this problem, the immune system can be restored to normal function, and allergies may become less of an issue. How is this corrected?
We use a gentle method that does not require popping or cracking the spine. It is referred to as NUCCA, and it involves a low force correction to a specific area of the neck that encourages the bones to move back into their original position more naturally. The body can then begin to repair any damage from the misalignment. A person’s overall health and well-being will likely improve after only a few visits.
