Alleviate Your Allergies Naturally With Chiropractic Care

female patient handshakeSneezing, itchy, watery eyes, runny nose, wheezing. These are some of the common (not to mention miserable) symptoms of allergies, which can significantly impact a sufferer’s quality of life. Many people turn to OTC medication to suppress their symptoms, but we view that as a bandage approach that just masks symptoms but doesn’t get to the root cause of allergies.

At LifeGiving Chiropractic, we love using chiropractic care to help relieve patients’ allergies. Let’s take a look at how our natural care can make a difference.

A Focus on the Upper Cervical Spine

Chiropractic adjustments focus primarily on the upper cervical spine, particularly around the first bone of the spine, known as C1. Misalignment in this area can lead to reduced blood flow and increased pressure, affecting the head and facial regions.

Techniques Tailored for Allergy Relief

Dr. Graciela uses chiropractic techniques like the Activator Method or the Thompson technique to target the sinus areas specifically. Adjustments are made to critical points around the forehead, cheekbones, and chin to enhance drainage and relieve pressure. This approach is particularly beneficial during allergy seasons when pollen and other allergens are prevalent, causing inflammation and complications like sinus infections and headaches.

Ensuring Patient Safety and Comfort

Understandably, some people who are new to chiropractic may wonder if it’s safe or if adjustments will be painful. Rest assured that chiropractors offer various techniques to suit individual comfort levels.

Dr. Graciela always tells her patients that they don’t have to do anything they don’t want to do. She lets them know that she can try a manual adjustment first but if they don’t like it, Dr. Graciela can do something else. “That’s why we have different techniques here in the office just to be able to provide you with the same amount of care just in different ways,” she said.

Some of these ways include gentle methods such as the drop table or low-setting Activator tools, both of which provide effective treatment without the intensity of manual adjustments. With this flexibility, we can help patients of all ages, from kiddos to seniors, benefit from chiropractic care for allergy relief.

Take That First Step Toward Relief

If you’re tired of putting up with bothersome allergies and looking for a non-invasive solution, consider chiropractic care. Whether it’s seasonal allergies or chronic sinus issues, chiropractic adjustments could significantly improve your symptoms and overall well-being.
