Allergies & Sinus Relief

Allergy and Sinus Infection Relief from Our Columbia Chiropractors

Allergy and sinus infection issues are prevalent here in Columbia. Our temperate climate fosters the production of pollen by trees, grasses, and weeds from early spring to late fall. Additionally, individuals with allergies to dust, mold, and animal dander struggle throughout the year. Allergies and their frequent companion, sinus infections, indicate an immune system malfunction. Many allergy sufferers rely on regular doses of antihistamines to manage their symptoms, but this approach can compromise the effectiveness of the immune system. Our chiropractors can offer natural, drug-free relief from allergies and sinus issues by addressing the underlying immune system response.

Reducing Sinus Infections and Allergies through Chiropractic Care

The immune system depends heavily on a well-functioning nervous system to combat genuine threats such as harmful bacteria and viruses. However, individuals with allergies often have their immune systems treat normally harmless substances like grass pollen and cat dander as pathogens. This triggers an acute inflammatory response, leading to symptoms like sneezing, itching, and excess mucus production, which can culminate in sinus pressure, pain, and infections. Chiropractic care can be beneficial in such cases.

Our chiropractors in Columbia have observed that many allergy sufferers and those prone to sinus infections often have a spinal misalignment, or subluxation, in the cervical spine. These misalignments can compress nerves responsible for regulating immune responses. Misalignments in the neck vertebrae, particularly C2, C3, and C4, can occur due to various factors:

  • Injuries from car accidents, sports, or other personal accidents resulting in whiplash.
  • Habitual poor posture, such as constantly craning the neck over a mobile device or sitting at a workstation lacking ergonomic design for optimal neck posture.
  • Neck pain and stiffness often accompany allergies and sinus infections.

Natural Relief from Allergies and Sinus Issues by our Columbia Chiropractors

Our chiropractors can identify subluxations anywhere along the spine and provide precise adjustments to release compressed nerves. This allows the brain to regulate the immune system more effectively, offering long-term relief from allergies and sinus problems. Meanwhile, your immune system remains vigilant against genuine pathogens in the Columbia environment.
