Most of the time, people come to North Hills Chiropractic for the first time because of back pain. However, chiropractors treat a broad range of complaints, from the aforementioned back and neck pain to headaches, arthritis, and more. Plus, people really don’t even have to have a specific complaint to visit us here at North Hills Chiropractic because we also focus on preventative care and wellness. Chiropractic care is actually quite helpful for all types of people and all ages, from infants to senior citizens. Chiropractic care can even help reduce the frequency and severity of your allergies. Unlike an antihistamine that only works short-term, chiropractic care helps you with long-term results while allowing your body to equip itself to better fight them. Allergies are your body’s reaction to an allergen, normally when your immune system has been lowered. Oftentimes, when you spine is misaligned, it can impair your nervous system which, studies show, has a direct impact on the immune system. We work to realign your spine and correct these issues for you. Many people have headaches that are caused by loud noises, stress, or being tired. However, a lot of the time headaches are caused by tightness in the neck and shoulders. The tightness will cause the vertebrae in your neck to become misaligned which then results in pain. In fact, 80% of all headaches stem from the neck. A typical headache that originates in the neck starts at the base of your skull and radiates into your temples, eyes, and forehead.
