Chiropractic Care for Fall Allergies

By Donna Stark 

The sniffles, the tears, the declarations of not feeling well. Are you ready for it? If not, you might want to prepare because it's soon going to be the start of a new allergy season. And no, I'm not talking about the "pretend" allergies at school that your children claim to be suffering from (because we all know that they are about as allergic to that as you are to them). Rather, I am speaking of those glorious fall allergies. The ones that are similar to the ones we suffer from in spring. The ones that are sure to bring some extra challenges to the start of another busy school year. The timing couldn't be worse but don't worry! Your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic can help!

Fall Allergies

Summer was a welcomed reprieve from those springtime allergies, but now the time has come to deal with them once again. Ragweed, a common source of fall allergies, blooms from August through November and can bring misery to those who are sensitive to it. Here are some common allergy symptoms.

  • Runny nose
  • Nasal congestion
  • Sneezing
  • Scratchy, itchy, or tingling throat
  • Itchy, watery eyes
  • Coughing
  • Wheezing or difficulty breathing

Chiropractic Care for Fall Allergies

The nervous, respiratory, and immune systems help with filtering out foreign contaminants that come into the body and allergens are no exception, but when the spine is out of its proper alignment, these systems can become compromised. When this occurs, your best bet is to head on in to The Joint Chiropractic for an adjustment. Here's how chiropractic care can help.

  • Reduces allergy symptoms without the use of medications
  • Removes joint restrictions and nerve interference
  • Clears the communication pathways between the brain and the rest of the body
  • Helps to open up the sinuses which allow them to drain properly
  • Restores optimal function to the nervous, respiratory, and immune systems

Fighting the Good Fight

In addition to regular chiropractic care, there are some other strategies you can take that will help everyone get through this time of year. Take a look at the following suggestions.

  • Plan outdoor activities for the morning
  • Keep windows and doors shut
  • Replace air filters in the home and have the ducts cleaned
  • Shower and wash hair before bed
  • Wear a filter mask when working outside 
  • Change into fresh clothes after being outdoors
  • Do not hang clothes outside to dry
  • Don't let your child play in dead or wet leaves
  • Check daily pollen and mold counts and stay indoors during peak hours
