Abstract

ALLERGIES CAN AFFECT ATHLETES AND CLIENTS IN A NUMBER OF WAYS. SOME ALLERGIES (E.G., RHINITIS) CAN DECREASE QUALITY OF LIFE AND IMPAIR ATHLETIC PERFORMANCE. OTHER ALLERGIES (E.G., EXERCISE-INDUCED ANAPHYLAXIS) CAN BE LIFE-THREATENING. THIS COLUMN DISCUSSES SOME OF THE MORE COMMON ALLERGIES AND HOW TO MANAGE THEM SO THAT QUALITY OF LIFE AND PHYSICAL PERFORMANCE ARE NOT NEGATIVELY AFFECTED.
