Gentle Chiropractic Care Can Relieve Your Fall Allergies

mother daugthter hugAs the weather gets cooler and the leaves change color, many people start to experience allergies related to fall. Given the often wild weather changes here in the St. Louis metro, it’s no wonder many people suffer from allergies.

Symptoms include pressure in the face, particularly the forehead and around the nose, and breathing better on one side, which is common for those with a deviated septum.

A Drug-Free Solution for All Ages

While there are many over-the-counter and prescription medications that can help relieve allergy symptoms, many people prefer natural solutions. Chiropractic care is one such solution that can be effective in relieving fall allergies.

Not only does Dr. Agan adjust the spine, but he also gently works on the sinus cavities in the skull. Below the eyes next to the nose, there are sinus cavities, and those bones shift a little bit, so he uses the cranial technique and a sinus relief technique that patients often request.

Dr. Agan usually includes these methods in his adjustment and these approaches are suitable for all ages and are comfortable-like a massage.

A Healthy Nervous System-a Healthier You

By getting chiropractic care, your nervous system can flow better and operate at its peak. So although we’re going to be exposed to allergens, the way your body attacks and handles that exposure is based on stress in your nervous system. If this critical system is balanced, your allergy symptoms can be alleviated.

Some people suffer more from allergies than others and have to go alternative routes to get relief. The good news is that even your day-to-day congestion can be cleared up with an adjustment and some cranial sinus work.

What to Expect After an Adjustment

The sinus pockets all drain into one reservoir, which is usually the soft spot behind your ear that runs down the back of your throat (the Eustachian tube). If we can free up those areas of restriction in the sinuses, then everything can drain properly. Typically, patients will experience significant drainage after an adjustment.

You don’t have to put up with seasonal sneezing, sinus pressure, and other bothersome symptoms that can sideline you from your daily activities. Contact us today to book an appointment!
