Seasonal allergies can be a real annoyance for many people.
The itchy eyes, runny nose, and congestion can make it difficult to enjoy the great outdoors or even just get through the day.
While many people turn to over-the-counter or prescription medications to relieve their allergy symptoms, there is another option that may be even more effective: upper cervical care.
What is Upper Cervical Care?
Upper cervical care is a specialized form of chiropractic care that focuses on the uppermost vertebrae of the spine, known as the Atlas (C1) and Axis (C2).
These vertebrae play a crucial role in the function of the nervous system, which controls every function in the body, including the immune system.
When the atlas and axis are misaligned, it can interfere with nervous system function and compromise the immune system, making it more difficult for the body to fight off allergens.
How Can Upper Cervical Care Help Allergies?
By correcting misalignments in the upper cervical spine, upper cervical chiropractors can help restore proper nervous system function and enhance the immune response.
This can help reduce the severity of allergy symptoms and even prevent them from occurring in the first place.
In addition to upper cervical chiropractic adjustments, upper cervical care may also involve other therapies like massage, stretching, and exercise to support spinal alignment and improve overall wellness.
By taking a holistic approach to care, chiropractors can help patients manage their allergy symptoms while also promoting optimal health and wellness.
If you suffer from seasonal allergies, it may be worth considering upper cervical care to maintain your path to health and healing.
By supporting your nervous system and immune response, you may be able to reduce the severity of your symptoms and improve your quality of life.
