How Can Chiropractic Help Your Allergy Symptoms?

The nerves that run through the spinal column help regulate every part of your body. When your spine is misaligned, important nerve functions can be interrupted, weakening your body’s own abilities and causing uncomfortable symptoms. Returning your spine to optimal health benefits your entire body and supports your immune system.

When you’re suffering from seasonal allergies, you might reach for over-the-counter antihistamines only to find that they make you feel worse than your allergies do. Chiropractic is a gentle, natural way to relieve allergy symptoms without the side effects.

Learn how chiropractic care from Dr. Bill can boost your immune system, support your respiratory system, reduce stress to help fight those seasonal allergies. 

If your allergies are unbearable, it might be time to ask, “is there a chiropractor near me?”

How to get started: Search for a “Chiropractor Near Me”

At your initial appointment, you’ll receive a thorough examination and surface EMG to find where your main areas of stress are.

Dr. Thatcher uses non-invasive techniques to give you gentle, safe, and effective care to relieve your allergies and have you breathing easily once again.

Is Healing Laser Therapy is Right for Your Condition?

A healing laser does two things: it reduces your inflammation, which helps reduce your pain and it stimulates your cells’ mitochondrial activity, which creates more ATP (Adenosine triphosphate), AKA - energy- to accelerate the healing process.

Healing lasers are used to help the body improve its own healing capacity. Imagine a slow-healing injury speeding up, inflammation from shingles being reduced, or a scar fading away. Healing lasers can even heal bones, help with migraines, and improve neuropathy. Speeding up the healing process can bring you relief and help avoid costly surgeries or other interventions.

How Temperature and Humidity Can Contribute to Arthritis Pain

Do you have arthritis?

Do you notice more pain during certain seasons?

You might be picking up on changes in the weather. Nerves in your joints can sense humidity, precipitation, and temperature and can react with pain or stiffness. This doesn’t happen to everyone, however. If you feel more pain in cold weather, your body may be reacting to the low temperatures, low humidity, and low barometric pressure. Low temperatures can also make the fluid inside joints thicker, so they feel stiffer. If you experience more pain in warmer weather, your joints are picking up on the high barometric pressure, high temperature, and high humidity. The fluids in your joints may also become thinner and result in increased inflammation, pain, and discomfort.

Learn about barometric pressure.

Can Weather Really Affect Arthritis?

Do you experience increased arthritis pain during certain times of the year?

Do your joints slow down or become stiff too?

Some studies suggest barometric pressure might have something to do with it. Barometric pressure – the pressure of the air around us – differs from day to day in accordance with the weather. Some won’t notice this change, but others are more sensitive to the changes and will feel it in their joints. One explanation is that the cartilage inside a joint becomes worn away over time, and the now exposed nerves in the bones of the joint might pick up on changes in pressure. Changes in barometric pressure may also make your tendons and muscles expand and contract, which can cause pain.

Symptoms of Whiplash

 Is your neck sore?

Could it be whiplash?

Whiplash occurs when your head and neck are jerked in one direction, then spring back in the opposite direction. This sudden movement can cause neck sprain that leads to soft tissue damage. 

You might have whiplash if you have:

  • neck stiffness or pain
  • tightness in your neck
  • pain in head, arms, shoulders
  • headaches
  • blurred vision
  • dizziness
  • a man holding his neck in pain | Best chiropractor Ann Arbor
    tinnitus
  • decreased range of motion
  • brain fog

Because the spinal cord is the home of the nervous system and connects to the brain, if there’s an injury in the spine, it can affect all areas of the body. Symptoms of whiplash can linger and prolong your discomfort. The best thing you can do is receive chiropractic care before, or right as, symptoms begin.

Learn more about whiplash.
