More than 50 million Americans suffer from allergies. Pollen, mold, weeds, etc can cause symptoms such as a stuffy nose, watery and itchy eyes, and a scratchy throat. It can even lead to a sinus infection in severe cases. Histamine is released into your nose, throat, lungs and eyes to deal with irritants but this can leave you feeling miserable if passageways block up and pressure builds.
Chiropractors can restore proper alignment to the spine and this can lead to clearer paths of communication, balancing things out with your immune system. When patients receive a neck adjustment, it restores the communication to the brain and can help to open up sinus passages and drain the ear canals.
Along with helping the immune system, chiropractic adjustments can also help control the influx of histamine produced during allergy season. We offer a sinus flush treatment to clear congested sinus cavities and unclog the eustachian tubes naturally, without medication. By using essential oils and manual therapy to help push mucus along, it can help to open up airways for easier breathing and draining.
The ultimate goal of chiropractic care is to allow your body to communicate with itself and heal. When it is allowed to do this properly, your immune system, as well as every other system, is able to work and resist stimulates more effectively; even allergies!

Cupping is used to help release tight muscles and help restore blood flow to the tissues and release toxins out of muscles and other tissues. Suction from cupping brings blood to the surface of the skin and can cause capillaries to burst, causing the purple marks left behind.
This allows the body to replenish the area with healthier blood flow and stimulates healing at the cellular level. This is how it can release toxins and lactic acid built up in tight muscles, particularly in athletes.
