Spring has officially sprung, and that means allergy season is in full bloom. This season has many of our patients feeling less than their best, and chiropractic care can help. Itchy, watery eyes, stuffy noses, and sneezing fits are just a few of the unwanted symptoms that allergy sufferers deal with. If you suffer from allergies, here are our suggestions.
If you aren’t already taking allergy medication, now might be the time to start. A daily allergy pill can help with your symptoms and is ideal for those that suffer from seasonal allergies. If you have more serious allergies, consult with your primary care physician for the best plan for you.
You’ve been putting it off for long enough, but spring cleaning can actually help with your allergy symptoms.
Keeping your environment clean won’t eliminate all allergy symptoms, but it can help reduce them. Allergens like pollen cling to your hair, body, and clothes and are often tracked into your home. Be sure to wash your face and hands, wipe down objects, and sweep or vacuum regularly to keep dust at bay and prevent your allergies from acting up.
When you think of a chiropractor, you probably think of a back doctor. Most people don’t realize that chiropractic can greatly benefit allergy sufferers. As chiropractors, it is our job to use spinal adjustments to properly align the spine and remove any interferences. This allows the central nervous system to function optimally, which includes the immune system. Allergies are essentially an overreaction of the immune system, so you want to be sure it is as healthy as possible. Many of our patients have shared great results in finding relief from their allergy symptoms with the help of regular chiropractic care.
