Chiropractic Care for Allergy Relief
By Donna Stark
If you don't personally struggle with allergies, I bet you know somebody who does. How could you not? It is estimated that more than 50 million Americans suffer from some type of allergy, and many of those allergies are the ones that pop up during the spring and fall seasons. With so many people affected, it should come as no surprise then, that the demand for effective treatments is at an all-time high. But unfortunately, what works for one person may not work for another and many people bounce from one approach to the next in hopes of finding relief. Sound like you? Well, if it does, let me suggest something that you may not have considered ... chiropractic care at The Joint Chiropractic.
What are Allergies?
Allergies occur when a foreign substance, such as pollen or pet dander, enters the body, and your immune system "overreacts" to it. The severity of allergy symptoms can range from minor irritations to life-threatening emergencies, and it is possible to be allergic to just about anything. Here are some of the more common sources of allergies that affect us in the fall.
- Pet dander
- Dust mites
Treating Allergies With Chiropractic Care
You may never stumble upon a magic pill that completely cures your allergies, but there are treatments that can lessen their impact on your life, and for many people, that is just what they need. One of those treatments is chiropractic care. Chiropractic care is a safe and effective alternative to the standard allergy treatments which are prescribed by so many doctors. Take a look at how it may be able to help you.
