More than 50 million Americans experience allergy symptoms each year, making it the sixth most common chronic illness in the United States. If you are seeking relief from allergies that last all year, Upper Cervical Chiropractic of New York can help.
THE BODY’S RESPONSE TO ALLERGIES
Your body naturally responds to allergens by producing immunoglobin E. These antibodies prompt the production of histamines, which attack different body parts, causing an allergic reaction. While your throat, nose and eyes are histamines’ primary targets, other parts of your body can also feel the impact. Symptoms include:
- A runny nose
- Itchy rashes
Some people’s allergies are more sensitive or severe than others, with some lasting well beyond the typical allergy season. Seeking relief from these long-lasting unpleasant symptoms may lead you to investigate different types of treatment. Luckily, an upper cervical care (UCC) chiropractor can help.
What Is an Upper Cervical Chiropractor?UCC chiropractors are a highly specialized group of professionals who concentrate on the upper neck and back to find misalignments that disrupt functions throughout the body. UCC chiropractors focus on restoring your body’s balance and helping you feel better. Dr. George Gertner is a highly trained upper cervical chiropractor for allergies. He is one of only a few hundred people worldwide trained to use the National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association (NUCCA) technique to reduce pressure on the nervous system through a gentle spinal correction. This adjustment moves the pelvis, spine and skull back to their natural positions, helping the body return to a healthy state.
Upper Cervical Care for Allergies
An upper cervical chiropractor for allergies can improve immune system function by releasing the nervous system. Your brain and spinal cord must communicate properly to coordinate regular immune system function. When a misalignment of the cervical spine irritates that communication, the immune response may become exaggerated, sparking an allergic reaction.
With NUCCA, your chiropractor will use imaging of the cervical region to determine where the misalignment is. We make gentle adjustments by hand to the irritated area and later follow up with nervous systems scans to ensure the correction was successful. Our UCC chiropractor for allergies can also help the respiratory system. By releasing pressure on the nerves that may irritate the lungs, Dr. Gertner can help you improve your breathing quality and alleviate many common allergy symptoms.
When an immune system is operating correctly, it aids in preventing disease and infection as well as stress to ensure the entire body is healthy. A functioning immune system attacks foreign substances such as pollen, dust and pollution before they can perform further damage to your body.
A misalignment of the spine can impact how the brain communicates with the rest of the body. By gently correcting the joints and soft tissues, you can open the pathways between the brain and spine to fully restore the body’s alignment.

After receiving his bachelors degree in biology from Hofstra University in Hempstead, NY Dr. Gertner moved to Atlanta, GA to attend Life University. Before graduation, Dr. Gertner had a severe injury to his lower back. Traditional chiropractic procedures were not providing relief until he met a chiropractor that specialized in NUCCA (National Upper Cervical Chiropractic Association.)
Then he spent the next two years mentoring from one of the best Upper Cervical doctors; learning in the same office that helped change his life. After two years, Dr. Gertner returned home to New York to open his own office. He currently is one of less than 300 NUCCA chiropractors worldwide.
