If you suffer from allergies, you’re not alone. Almost 30% of Americans experience symptoms brought on pollen, pet dander and even certain foods. Allergy symptoms can be mild and not require treatment, but many people require medications and time off from work when their allergies flare up.
Common allergy symptoms include:
- Runny nose
- Watery eyes
- Sore throat
- Scratchy throat
- Post nasal drip
When your cervical vertebrae are out of alignment, this can trigger allergy symptoms or make them worse. By using spinal manipulations to correct this, the cervical nerves can function properly and blood flow is increased to the area. Adjustments can also stimulate the production of cortisol to help reduce the inflammatory response being caused by the body’s production of histamines. In addition to spinal manipulation, Dr. Sandness can also provide nutritional counseling and lifestyle advice to help you handle your allergy problems through safe, natural methods rather than using chemical-based medications.
