Allergy testing a form of diagnostic testing that is completed during the Elite Physical. During the allergy test a trained allergy specialist will perform an allergy prick test, the patient will sit for 20 minutes to determine if your body has an allergic reaction to a known substance.
Allergies occur when your immune system, which is your body’s natural defense, overreacts to something in your environment. For example, pollen, which is normally harmless, can cause your body to overreact. This overreaction can lead to a runny nose, sneezing, blocked sinuses, or itchy, watery eyes.
After your allergy testing, our allergy specialist will go over options for you and what would work best for your health. As a practice we offer on site allergy shots, as well as other treatments to fit your specific allergy needs.
