Allergies and Chiropractic Care

Spring may have just started, but we’ve been enjoying beautiful weather in South Florida for some time. The sun is out and shining, the weather is perfect, and we are enjoying more time outside. There’s just one thing that can put a damper on the spring season: allergies! Fortunately, chiropractic care may be able to help manager your symptoms.

Seasonal Allergy Symptoms

For allergy sufferers, seasonal allergy symptoms can range from mild to server. It all just depends on the body and how it reacts to allergens in the environment. The most common seasonal allergy symptoms we see in our patients include:

  • Runny nose

  • Sneezing

  • Congestion

  • Itchy eyes

When you suffer from these symptoms, they can be a huge interruption in your daily life, and that’s when it is time to seek help. At Markson Chiropractic, we are here to help.

Traditional Treatments

For some dealing with seasonal allergies, traditional treatments can help. The issue with them is that they only mask the symptoms, rather than treat the underlying issues that is causing the symptoms. Some also come with side effects including drowsiness and stomach problems. That’s why whenever possible, we suggest going with a natural cure (like chiropractic!).

Chiropractic Care for Allergies

Your nervous system is in charge of everything in your body, including your immune system. When it comes to allergies, it is essentially an overreaction by your body to the environment. Even though allergies are something many people deal with, there is something you can do about it. By focusing on improving the health of the nervous system with chiropractic care, you may find that your body reacts differently to the environment it is in - including allergies.

When you receive a spinal adjustment, joint restrictions and dysfunctions are removed from the spine, meaning you nervous system can function at its best. This causes your body to respond better to environmental allergies, meaning you feel better and suffer less.
