man and woman running on the beachAfter months of cold weather, spring is right around the corner! When the seasons change, it’s a great time to reassess your health. Fluctuating temperatures and seasonal allergies can throw your system off balance. Be ready to address these issues with help from an experienced chiropractor! What are some common springtime concerns we treat?

Seasonal Allergies

Allergies occur when your immune system has an adverse reaction to a foreign substance. In spring, common allergens include tree pollen and mold spores. People who suffer from allergies and chronic sinus problems can benefit from chiropractic care.

When the spine is misaligned, the whole body is affected. Spinal adjustments to correct these issues cause a chain reaction in the body. Through gentle manipulation techniques, we relieve nerve compression in the spine, which eases the interference in your nervous system causing sinus pressure. In the process, your immune system gets a big boost!

Sleep Problems

When Daylight Saving Time begins, we spring forward an hour. While we love the additional daylight, this sudden change can throw off our internal clocks. If you experience disrupted sleep patterns in springtime, a chiropractor can address key factors that impact quality of sleep – nutrition and ergonomics are two important ones.

Our doctors can offer dietary advice and alternative sleep positions that promote health and decrease pressure on the spine. In-office, we can also perform spinal adjustments to release compressed nerves in the spinal column and stimulate a positive immune response.

Injury Prevention

When you transition from indoor to outdoor workouts, it’s important to keep your safety in mind. Rather than jumping right back into a routine, give your body time to adjust.

For instance, you don’t have to worry about hard pavement and wind tunnels while running on a treadmill but these are common obstacles for outdoor runs. At the start of spring, you may not be able to run at the same volume as you have been indoors due to external conditions. Avoid pushing too hard early in the season and risking an injury.

Chiropractors not only treat sports injuries but can help prevent them. We work with athletes to ensure the body is structurally and mechanically balanced for physical activity. Regular treatment can improve flexibility, strength and stamina, so athletes can continue to perform at an optimal level with less risk of injury.

Energy Boost

Did you experience the winter blues? Even on a 60-degree day with the sun shining, you might struggle to embrace it. If you’ve had symptoms of Seasonal Affective Disorder in the last few months, emotional distress is a common trigger of spinal problems.

A chiropractic adjustment not only alleviates your physical discomfort but can improve mood and increase energy levels.
