Allergy & Sinus

Persistent Allergy & Sinus Issues

Allergy and sinus infection complaints are common here in butte. Our dry and unpredictable climate can encourage sensitive tissues within the sinus cavities and exposure to noxious trees, grasses and weeds that produce pollen from early spring through late fall. Don’t forget about the people with dust, mold and animal dander allergies that tend to struggle all year. Allergies and their frequently-associated sinus infections can actually be a sign that your immune system is misfiring. Many allergy sufferers seek relief from steady doses of antihistamines to reduce/alleviate their symptoms, but this can be problematic as these drugs reduce the effectiveness of your immune system. Our chiropractors can help you get long-term allergy and sinus relief naturally, without drugs, by correcting the immune system response itself.

Fewer Sinus Infections and Allergies with Chiropractic Care

The immune system relies heavily on a fully-functioning nervous system to direct its efforts against real threats from harmful invaders like bacteria and viruses. People with allergies, however, have an over active immune system that treats ordinarily harmless things such as grass pollen, cat dander, etc. as an infectious disease. The immune system then instigates an acute inflammatory response that typically causes sneezing, itching and excess mucus production that can lead to sinus pressure, pain and infections. Chiropractic care can help.


Our chiropractors have found that many people with allergies and frequent sinus infections have a subluxation (spinal misalignment) located in the cervical (neck) spine. These subluxations pinch nerves that are responsible for controlling your immune system responses. Misalignments between vertebrae in the neck (particularly C2, C3 and C4) can occur in many ways:

Car Accident

In a car accident, sports injury or other personal injury that resulted in whiplash.

Poor Neck Posture

Habitually poor neck posture; either from looking down at your mobile device constantly or sitting at a work station that is not ergonomically designed for optimal neck posture.

Chiropractic Treatments for Allergy & Sinus Problems

Neck pain and stiffness is often a co-occurring symptom with allergies and sinus infections.

Chiropractic spinal adjustments

Our chiropractors can diagnose subluxations anywhere in the spine and provide precise spinal adjustments that release pinched nerves. This enables the brain to regulate the immune system more effectively, providing long-term allergy and sinus relief. At the same time, your immune system will still be alert to real pathogens in the Butte environment.

Avoid Known Allergy & Sinus Triggers

In addition to chiropractic treatment, our chiropractors also recommend avoiding any known triggers to your allergy and sinus issues, which might include:

  • Environmental allergens and pollutants (pollen, dust, pet dander, high AQI environments)
  • Cigarette smoke (first and second-hand)
