Dallas Tops List as Worst City for Seasonal Allergy Symptoms

The beautiful weather has arrived, in Dallas anyway! The rest of the country seems conflicted on whether to officially let Spring come to the party. But along with Dallas’ blue skies and gentle breeze comes sneezing, watery eyes, and a nose that looks more like a drippy faucet. It’s all proof that Dallas tops list as worst city for seasonal allergy symptoms.

seasonal allergy symptoms“A direct barometer for allergy season is the tissue box in the reception area. When it’s empty at the end of the day, I know my adult and pediatric patients are suffering with seasonal allergy symptoms, says chiropractor Dr. Jeff Manning of Manning Wellness Clinic in Dallas.

In the most recent Top 10 list compiled by  The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, cities are ranked  based on pollen levels, use of allergy medications and the number of board-certified allergists in the area.

Louisville has moved up the list from No. 5 last year because of higher-than-average pollen counts, high use of allergy medications and too few allergy specialists, according to the foundation.

New York; Columbia, South Carolina; and San Antonio are new to the top 20. Only Los Angeles residents can breathe a sigh of relief; the city fell 39 places from No. 38 last year to No. 77 this year.

Here are the worst cities for spring seasonal allergy symptoms and sufferers in 2014:

1. Louisville, Kentucky

2. Memphis, Tennessee

3. Baton Rouge, Louisiana

4. Oklahoma City

5. Jackson, Mississippi

6. Chattanooga, Tennessee

7. Dallas

8. Richmond, Virginia

9. Birmingham, Alabama

10. McAllen, Texas

“Allergy and asthma patients already have a chronic sensitivity to things like pollen, mold and other airborne allergens, but they can also be more susceptible to rapid changes in temperature and moisture,” Dr. Clifford Bassett, medical director of Allergy and Asthma Care of NY and an ambassador for the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, said in a statement. “A blending of the winter and spring means these patients are at risk of multiple symptoms simultaneously.”

If you think popping a pill is the only way to find relief for seasonal allergy symptoms, you are in for a treat: Chiropractic can help to improve seasonal allergy symptoms and help you to avoid allergy-related illnesses like sinus infections.  In the throes of an allergy attack, antihistamines definitely have their place. But with side effects like sleepiness, dry mouth and an overall clouded feeling, they’re not an ideal match for everyone.

Chiropractic works by helping the body to help itself. By removing interference within the body, nerves can function and perform the way they are meant to. Seasonal allergy symptoms can feel less severe.
