Pains SUMMERTIME How Chiropractic Care Can Help With 2 Common Conditions
Having a backache or hip pain typically has you wobbling to your chiropractor, but there are somany more ways their expertise can help you. Find out how this kind of care can relieve two common summertime conditions below. RunningOut of Tissues? Withmore pollen wafting through the air and warmer temperatures beckoning you outside, it’s not uncommon for allergies to spike during the summer. Allergy symptoms are commonly a response of your body’s immune system, which is perceiving something as harmless as dust or grass as an invasive intruder. Sneezing and watering eyes are methods your body uses to clear these toxins out. Decongestants are often the go-to source for relief, but these aids rarely target the root of your problemwhen allergies attack. Chiropractic care is designed to realign your body and open up proper communication within your nervous system. By realigning the spine and neck, chiropractors can relieve sinus pressure, properly drain your sinuses, and align this communication back to center.
swim safety, there are health concerns every swimmer and parent should know before diving in. Swimmers typically get ear infections, commonly called swimmer’s ear. This condition occurs when bacteria builds up in a patient’s ear canal, and while contact with water is a common cause, it can happen to anyone. If your ear is throbbing, aching, and warm, consult with your doctor for a diagnosis. This will eliminate any other serious conditions that could stem from these symptoms. After an ear infection diagnosis, your chiropractor can offer you relief. Hinging on the same science as allergy relief, care for an ear infection stems from a chiropractor’s ability to open up that primary communication between your sinuses and immune system. As the bacteria in your ear increases the pressure within that cavity, your body becomes stressed, and readjusting your spine removes that pressure, allowing your body to fully heal. Don’t reach for pain relievers when allergies and ear infections leave you feeling groggy and achy.
