Fight Back Against Allergies with Chiropractic Care

By Donna Stark

Spring is still a couple of months away, but already, I am hearing talk about the dreaded allergy season coming up. And while most people are excited for the temps to warm up and to finally be able to go outside jacket-free, others are checking their stockpiles of tissues, allergy medications, and eye drops. It is easy to see why allergies hit so hard in the spring ... the pollen in the air from the trees, grass, and weeds always seem ready to attack us at a moment's notice. But as bad as that is, allergies can really hit us at any time throughout the entire year. So it's important to take steps that will help combat those pesky allergens from doing so, and one of the best steps you can take is to see your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic!

Allergies - Enemy No. 1

An allergic attack occurs when the body's immune system identifies a substance as foreign and potentially harmful and overreacts to it. The symptoms can vary in severity from day-to-day, but will most often leave you in some state of discomfort. Take a look at some of the more common, non-life-threatening symptoms.

  • Runny nose
  • Nasal congestion
  • Sneezing, coughing
  • Watery, itchy eyes
  • Scratchy or sore throat
  • Fatigue
  • Facial pressure or pain
  • Swelling
  • Rash
  • Itchy skin

Allergens are Everywhere

The substances that cause the body to react are allergens and they can be found in so many different things. This is why allergies aren't specifically limited to those beautiful spring months and can sneak up on you during every month of the year. Here are some examples of different allergen sources, in and outside of your home.

  • Medications
  • Food
  • Insects that sting or bite
  • Latex
  • Mold
  • Pet saliva and dander
  • Dust
  • Dust mites
  • Lotion, powder, perfume
  • Detergents

Chiropractic Care Can Help!

Routine chiropractic care can improve the communication between the body's nervous, immune, and respiratory systems. When the communication signals between these systems are functioning at an optimal level, the body is able to expel some of the foreign contaminants that enter the body and regulate the amount of histamine and cortisol produced during an allergen attack. This, in turn, lessens the chance that your body will overreact to those allergens.

Establishing a regular schedule of chiropractic adjustments at The Joint Chiropractic is a safe and effective way for relieving your allergy symptoms throughout the entire year! It is completely drug-free as well, so you won't have to deal with any of the side effects that typically come with over-the-counter and prescription medications.
