There are many different types of allergies. The proper course for managing and treating allergies will depend on how your specific condition is affecting you. Below, we’ve outlined some of the most common types. However, this list isn’t exhaustive. If you're suffering from allergies, chiropractic anti-inflammatory treatments may help.
When people think of allergies, they often think of seasonal allergies. These allergies often wax and wane with the seasons and are the result of pollen and similar allergens. Since certain flowers only bloom during certain times of the year, you may only experience these allergies during specific seasons.
The Centers for Disease Control reports that more than 24 million Americans suffer from seasonal allergies. Fortunately, the condition is often mild and treatable. That said, lifestyle changes, such as avoiding parks when the pollen count is high, may be needed. Chiropractic adjustments and other treatment methods can also aid the respiratory system, potentially reducing symptoms.

Food allergies are common, with the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America noting that roughly 20 million Americans suffer from this condition. With food allergies, your body will react to food molecules as foreign invaders and the immune system will launch a response.
Unfortunately, this response can evolve into a serious and even life-threatening condition. It’s crucial to avoid foods that you’re allergic to, and if your condition is serious, you may want to carry an EpiPen or a similar medical device. Chiropractic care can also provide digestive system relief, potentially helping folks manage their food sensitivities.
The skin is the largest bodily organ, and it typically does an excellent job protecting people from microbes, UV radiation, and other things. Unfortunately, however, many people suffer skin allergies. If you touch something you’re allergic to, it could cause a rash and hives.
Many different things can cause a skin reaction, including latex, chemical cleaners, perfumes, certain soaps, and more. It’s smart to pin down what is causing a reaction and then avoid contact when possible.
