What do you do at BackFit for allergies?

Here at BackFit, we administer Sublingual Immunotherapy (SLIT). It is a simple, 3-tier process:

  1. Test: first, we confirm your allergies through traditional skin testing procedures.
  2. Treat: after that, we provide you with the proper serum combination for a 9-week treatment process.
  3. Maintain: lastly, you are given a daily serum to maintain your acute allergy needs.

What are the different allergies by season?

There are many different types of seasonal allergies:

  • Late winter and spring: tree pollen
  • Late spring and summer: grass pollen
  • Late summer and fall: weeds pollen

You may just be affected by one of these, but you may feel the affects of two or all three seasonal allergies.

Our treatment is also effective for some people against other allergens, such as allergic rhinitis (hay fever), asthma, molds, dust mites, animal dander, other pollens, and other allergic diseases.

What does SLIT treat?

SLIT are allergy drops administered orally that are a preventative treatment to relieve allergy symptoms. Allergen immunotherapy may be especially good for you if:

  • Your current allergy medications are not providing adequate relief.
  • Allergen triggers are difficult for you to avoid in your life, such as if you work outside.
  • Your current allergy medication causes intolerable side-effects.
  • Long-term use of your current medication is concerning you.
  • You experience upper respiratory infections that regularly require antibiotics.
  • You're cost conscious or your current medication isn't cost effective.

SLIT treats the root cause of your allergy problems. It also has a lower potential for anaphylactic reactions.

It is specifically designed to improve your quality of life over standard medical therapies for allergies.

Am I a good candidate for Sublingual Immunotherapy?

SLIT is appropriate for most people with mild, moderate, or severe allergies. It is especially beneficial for people that are sensitive to allergy shots or simply prefer oral drops to an injection. Allergy drops also do not require a medical doctor to administer them.

SLIT is not recommended if you are pregnant, have severe uncontrolled asthma, have certain lung or heart problems, or if you take beta-blockers.

If you're suffering from allergies and would like to learn more about Sublingual Immunology, schedule a consult with one of our providers to see if SLIT is right for you.

I look forward and enjoy every visit in my road to back recovery. The staff is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and welcoming. I will no longer be looking for another chiropractor office to meet my back needs. I also like the fact they provide other health needs.
