Chiropractic Care for Sinusitis

Is your nose “stuffy”? Do you suffer from chronic sinus pressure? Chronic sinusitis often develops when nasal and sinus passages cannot drain properly due to physical or nerve related causes.

A study from 2012 entitled “Effects of manual therapy on craniofacial pain in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis: a case series,” found that patients experienced relief of all symptoms, some after only one adjustment!

N. Olmsted ChiropractorWhat is Sinusitis?

Sinusitis is an inflammation or swelling of the tissue lining the sinuses. Healthy sinuses are filled with air. But when they become blocked and filled with fluid, germs can grow and cause an infection.

About 35 million Americans have sinusitis at least once each year which is typically accompanied by facial pain or pressure, “stuffed-up” nose, runny nose, loss of smell, cough or congestion.

Chiropractic Care for the Relief of Sinus Blockage

As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Neil knows that sinus sufferers can receive excellent relief through removal of obstructions to the proper drainage of the sinuses, specifically in the neck and back. When vertebra alignment is off, the muscles that attach to them can become swollen or spastic and close off the lymphatic drainage of the head and neck.  A variety of Chiropractic techniques employed by Dr. Neil can help to improve proper alignment of the vertebra and alleviate symptoms associated with chronic sinusitis. Some Chiropractors may even classify these as “chiropractic sinus adjustments.”
