How Chiropractic Can Relieve Springtime Allergies

person holding a bouquet of flowersWhile spring heralds the arrival of longer days, budding trees and blooming flowers, it also means a season of sneezing and wheezing for many people. If you’re one of the more than 50 million Americans who suffer from allergies each year, spring may look more like a patch of weeds than a bed of roses.

What Causes Allergies?

Allergies occur when your body’s immune system views a foreign substance as a threat, and then activates the body’s production of antibodies to fight back. Usually, these foreign substances are harmless, but the body regards them as harmful.

This immune response can cause inflammation in your sinuses, airways, and skin, which we call “allergies.” The body uses this reaction to remove the substance, which can leave many people suffering with miserable symptoms.

Since everyone reacts differently, allergies can range from mild to severe.

Common Spring Allergy Symptoms

  • Coughing
  • Clogged ears
  • Dry, itchy skin
  • Headaches
  • Postnasal drip
  • Sneezing
  • Sore throat
  • Watery, itchy eyes

Address Your Allergies Naturally

Many people take medication or use sprays or creams to manage their allergy symptoms, but these just provide a bandage solution. Chiropractic care is a safe, natural and effective alternative that can provide allergy relief.

Dr. Hoover can do some cranial, cervical and thoracic adjusting. He can also perform some trigger point/pressure point type work on the facial bones, particularly on the sinuses. This type of adjusting can help not only with sinus pressure, but also with associated headaches. Dr. Hoover has had allergy patients get off the table and ask for a tissue because their nose started to drain from the adjustment.

In addition to chiropractic, we offer nutritional support and diathermy, which helps with sinus and chest congestion.
