Flowers are blooming, leaves are filling the trees and grass is growing – spring has sprung! It is a beautiful and invigorating season. Unless, spring brings you congestion, sneezing, itchy eyes and sinus pain. If seasonal allergies and the discomfort that come along with them have become your new norm, you are not alone. Over 35 million Americans suffer from seasonal allergies.
Most people turn to the various drugs available to treat allergies including antihistamines, decongestants, nasal sprays and allergy shots. These drugs only conceal symptoms momentarily and don’t get to the source of the problem. Additionally, allergy medications often come along with a multitude of side effects including drowsiness, dizziness and increased heart rate.
At Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation we have alternative solutions to your seasonal allergies – chiropractic and acupuncture treatments. After regular chiropractic treatment most patients report a significant decrease in their allergy symptoms. Often allowing them to decrease or eliminate allergy medications.A dysfunctional nervous system is the source of most seasonal allergies. An immune system that is ineffective is not able to fight infection and often times overreacts to harmless substances which cause allergies. Chiropractic treatment for vertebral subluxations increases nervous system efficiency and eliminates incorrect immune system responses.
Acupuncture can complement chiropractic treatment by addressing imbalances in the body. According to traditional Chinese Medicine, allergies are caused by weak immune systems. Our licensed acupuncturist examines each patient individually to identify areas they may be deficient in. By strengthening these deficiencies the body is able to ward off seasonal allergy symptoms.
