Antibiotics And Childhood Allergies - Are They Related?

There are about 154 million prescriptions written for antibiotics every single year for antibiotics.

It's estimated that about 30% of those are unnecessary.

The unnecessary prescriptions are typically written for common colds, viral sore throats, bronchitis, and sinus and ear infections; none of which respond to antibiotics.

The 47 million needless prescriptions each year are putting patients at unnecessary risk for other health issues.

Scientists have warned for decades that antibiotic overuse will lead to the development of drug-resistant bacteria, making it even harder to fight infectious disease.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimates that drug-resistant bacteria cause 23,000 deaths along with two million illnesses annually.

Those statistics alone are enough to make you think twice next time your doctor prescribes you an antibiotic.

But did you know that antibiotic overuse can cause allergies as well?

New research is beginning to shine the light on antibiotics leading to allergies, especially in children.

In the article below, we will take a look at the link between antibiotics and childhood allergies.

How Do Chiropractors Know If Your Spine is Out of Alignment?

Signs of a Misaligned Spine 

The spine is a very complex structure that houses the spinal cord and spinal nerves that carry information throughout our entire bodies. The spinal column is made up of bones called vertebrae. Attached to the spine are muscles that allow strength and movement to the spine. 

When the spine becomes misaligned, also known as a subluxation, it can cause a wide variety of malfunctions within the body. 

Misalignment within the spine can affect our daily lives, causing neck and back pain, as well as pain throughout the rest of our bodies. This pain typically has to do with the misaligned vertebrae adding pressure to the nerves in the spinal column. 

The spine can become misaligned for any number of reasons. Some of which are obvious, like being involved in a serious accident. However, there are other reasons that may not be as clear, and it may not be obvious that there is a misalignment at all. 

Here are some common signs that your Chiropractor will look out for when determining if your spine is misaligned.

Your Guide to Spinal Adjustments & Decompression for Acute Disc Herniations

Chiropractic Care for Disc Herniations 

If you are suffering from a Herniated Disc then you know how debilitating it can be on a daily basis just trying to get everyday activities completed. 

A herniated disc is a condition where the disc protrudes out of the normal radius in the spine. When someone is suffering from this condition they may not even realize anything is wrong until the bulging disc presses on the nerve in the spinal column, which will, in turn, start to cause excruciating pain. 

A herniated disc can not only cause pain but also a loss in your natural range of motion.

Herniated disc pain is a debilitating spinal condition that can be very painful to live with, so needless to say, finding the right Doctor and the right treatment is crucial for recovery.
