It’s that time of year again – time for the pollen to descend and wreak havoc on your sinuses! Do you feel this is something you just have to get through every year? Have you tried everything and found no relief? Well, if you haven’t tried chiropractic care for sinus issues yet, then you need to! Your chiropractor may be able to help you get you some relief, not just by treating your sinuses, but helping your immune system to handle allergens in the environment better too. Read on to find out more!
What are Allergies?
Allergies are a result of your immune system taking action against foreign invaders. Seemingly harmless things such as pollen, nuts, dairy, mold or dust can send your immune system into overdrive causing a response that signals your body to flush out the invaders. That can translate to a lot of sinus pain and pressure, as well as just general feelings of yuckiness when allergy season is upon you.
How Chiropractic Fits In
Chiropractic isn’t a treatment for allergies exactly. It does happen to have the pleasant side-effect of helping those that suffer from sinus problems due to allergies for a couple of reasons.
When your chiropractor adjusts you and corrects the misalignments in your spine, then they are helping your nervous system to function better by removing interferences. Since the immune system is controlled ultimately by the central nervous system, it just so happens to help your body’s immune response to possible allergens that cause problems with your sinuses.
Some chiropractors can even do “adjustments” to your ears, which help to change the pressure inside of your Eustachian tube that runs from your inner ear to your throat for drainage. This can get blocked up when you’re having a major allergy attack, and an adjustment to the ear can help to promote proper drainage, helping you to feel better.
If you find you are really struggling with sinus problems and allergies, then you need to see your chiropractor. Just as with any health condition, bringing it to their attention is the first step to getting you on the road to recovery. Your chiropractor’s adjustment can help to promote not just feeling better in your sinuses, but better overall health and wellness too.
So, come into The Joint Chiropractic today in order to begin feeling better in the throes of allergy season. Your sinuses will thank you!
