Spring Allergies, Children, and Chiropractic

By Debra Rodzinak

Spring!  The time when we all come out of our burrows, shed our heavy winter clothes, and get back out into nature.  Along with this refreshing change in seasons comes allergies caused from blooming flowers.  Children can be especially affected by these changes, leaving parents wondering what they can do to help their little ones with their watery eyes, coughing, and sneezing.

Common Symptoms of Seasonal Allergies

Not only are wheezing, sneezing, and runny noses common during spring, but headaches and sleep disturbances can also accompany a congested head.  Common treatments for adults, such as over-the-counter or prescription medications, may not be suitable for small children.  But, since allergies are the result of an immune system that is out of balance, restoring this balance can be beneficial.

Natural Remedies for Allergies

Herbs such as nettle, lavender, and clary sage can be made into essential oils that can relieve tight muscles and congestion.  Add these oils to a warm bath or lotion.  Immune-boosting herbs such as echinacea and colloidal silver can also be ingested.  Garlic or Vitamin C are also good for strengthening the immune system naturally.

Chiropractic Treatments

Chiropractors believe the immune system is linked to the nervous system and helps to regulate our bodies.  If the central nervous system is not working properly, then common ailments, such as allergies, can present in children.  By using gentle pressure, a skilled chiropractor can help to bring a child’s spine into proper alignment, allowing the central nervous system to work effectively.

At The Joint Chiropractic, skilled doctors help parents of children with allergy concerns every spring.  By applying gentle pressure to the joints and muscles surrounding the spine, the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic ensure that the spine is working properly and the central nervous system is functioning as intended.  When the body is able to work without pain or alignment issues, it is able to naturally heal the body from the inside out, all without the use of drugs or surgery.
