Influential Development


The most common causes of anaphylactic shock are:
Foods: especially nuts, certain kinds of fruit, fish and less often spices
Drugs: especially penicillins, anaesthetic drugs, some intravenous infusion liquids, and injections. Aspirin and other painkillers (called NSAIDs) can produce very similar reactions.
Latex: mainly in rubber latex gloves, catheters, other medical products, but also in many things encountered in daily life. Sufferers are often health care workers, mainly nurses, or have other occupational contact with latex. They may also get anaphylaxis from bananas, avocados, kiwi fruit, figs, or other fruits and vegetables including even potatoes and tomatoes.
Bee or wasp stings: these may cause faintness, difficulty in breathing, or a rash or swelling of a part of the body that has not been stung. If just the site of the sting swells, you are probably not going to have anaphylaxis if stung again.


Chiropractic is concerned with the diagnosis, treatment and prevention of mechanical disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the effects of these disorders on the function of the nervous system and general health. There is an emphasis on manual treatments including spinal manipulation or adjustment (World Federation of Chiropractic, 1999).
Chiropractors take an integrated and holistic approach to the health needs of their patients, considering physical, psychological and social factors. They provide care and support by reducing pain and disability and by restoring normal function to people with neuro-musculoskeletal disorders.
