Sinus And Allergy Issues
Dr. Maggio of the ProAdjuster Chiropractic Clinic of Virginia explains how occasionally allergy and sinus issues can be related to pinched nerves in the neck.
When spring rolls around many people start suffering with seasonal allergies. Allergies are a hypersensitivity to the environment. Let’s look at that closely, everyone is exposed to pollen, dust, dander, and other things that we breathe in so why are some people allergic to this and other are not? This is a great question to ask. The reason why some have allergies and some don’t is because some peoples bodies are hypersensitive to these environmental challenges. Being hypersensitive to these environmental challenges means that your body simply overreacts. Think about it this way if a baby is exposed to a bacteria or virus and runs an extremely high temperature it is totally unnecessary, most bacteria and viruses burn off in the body between 100 and 102 degrees. An extremely high fever is the bodies overreaction and instability to handle an outside influence.
Allergy and sinus issues are very similar if the body overreacts to these outside influences it too can be heightened. So how can chiropractic help people who suffer with sinus and allergy issues? Chiropractic makes major positive changes in the nervous system, your nervous system regulates how you react to outside stimuli having a balanced nervous system makes it easier for your body to deal with environmental challenges that cause allergies.
There are also specific protocols that uses slight percussion or tapping to gently simulate the sinuses to drain. When the sinuses drain mucus will not build up in them and that will prevent the body from having multiple infections and reoccurring reactions. Although chiropractic does not cure sinus and allergy issues it can make them much more manageable and people are very grateful for that.
