Spring is here at last! For those of us living in the upper Midwest it is an exciting time of year. Sub-zero weather is in the rearview mirror and we can look forward to sunshine, budding trees and blooming flowers. For millions of Americans it is also a time for their dreaded allergies to come back to life. Itchy watery eyes, dripping noses, tickly throats and sneezes are here. For this reason many people dread spring rather than look forward to enjoying the beautiful outdoors. Allergies do not necessarily have to be a life sentence. There is hope.
Allergy sufferers have praised chiropractic for over a century. Many have experienced dramatic improvement or elimination of their dreaded allergy symptoms as a result of chiropractic care. Chiropractic care is not a treatment for allergies however. The goal of chiropractic care is to locate and correct a serious type of spine and nervous system stress call the vertebral subluxation complex. By releasing stress on the nervous system, chiropractic permits the immune system to function more effectively: something all allergy sufferers need since a nervous system with less stress functions more efficiently.
One review of patients at a chiropractic college clinic found that pediatric patients commonly had complaints of allergy, ear infection, sinus problems, bed-wetting, respiratory problems and gastrointestinal problems. Complete or substantial improvement occurred in 61.6%.[i]
For over a hundred years chiropractors have, by reducing nervous system stress caused by vertebral subluxations, helped people adapt better to all the stresses in their environment, including those relating to allergies.
Let chiropractic help you build better health from the inside!
