Even children suffer from allergies. It may surprise one to learn that out of every 10 children, 1 has some type of allergic reaction such as sneezing, coughing, watery or red eyes, and a runny nose. To find the best way to care for allergies, we need to understand why they occur.
What Causes Allergies?
An allergic reaction is an immune system response to a foreign substance in the body that is not usually harmful. The immune system protects the body by attacking anything that it perceives as a danger. Why are safe substances sometimes seen as a danger? It is due to a malfunction of the immune system, possibly caused by misalignment of the bones of the upper neck.

If either the C1 or C2 vertebra is misaligned, the brainstem is put under extreme stress. The brainstem is the communication highway of the body. When stressed, the signals being sent to the brain about substances entering the body may become distorted, causing the body to perceive harmless materials as dangerous. This causes an allergic reaction.
Here at Advanced Spinal Care, we focus on making sure the upper cervical spine is in working order and in proper alignment. If a misalignment is present, we use a gentle method to move it back into its proper position. This does not require us to pop or force the spine. Rather, the bones move naturally, providing a better and longer lasting result. Once this is done, allergies may improve or even go away entirely.
