Are you or someone you know suffering from unexplained allergy or inflammatory responses? It is possible that you might be suffering from environmental or food sensitivities that may be causing your symptoms.
Atlantic Spine Clinic is excited to announce that we are now testing for both environmental and food sensitivities. Tinsley Iselin, our physician assistant, performs the test using a skin prick technique on the back or arms of each patient. Each test lasts about 30-45 minutes and results are immediately available right here in our office!
The environmental allergy test is an exceptional sensitivity test for people here in the low country. With thriving vegetation throughout the year, the Charleston area has a thick atmosphere of pollen and dozens of other allergens. For those with sensitivities, exposure to local allergens may cause chronic fatigue, scratchy throat, watery eyes, and even joint pain. Our skin test looks at 72 allergens that are prominent in the South Carolina region.
The nutritional allergy (sensitivity) test is a fantastic tool for anyone struggling with unexplained heartburn, indigestion, diarrhea, vomiting, bloating, stomach aches, and fatigue. Sensitivities to certain foods can also spark autoimmune responses like eczema. Because sensitivities to foods can be mild, it can be difficult to pinpoint the exact source without proper testing. We will walk you through your results and provide guidance on how you can make changes to your diet to improve your overall health based on your specific sensitivities!
If you are struggling with any of the symptoms mentioned above, please contact the office today to check your insurance coverage and get scheduled for your test.
