How Can Chiropractic Help Sinus?

Sinus, or more commonly known as sinusitis in medical terms, is referred to an infection or an allergy of the sinus cavities. In this allergy, the lining of the mucus membranes are swelled and the normal flow of the mucus in the nasal passage is blocked. This blockage results in the sinus infection as the germs which had to be flushed out, replicate causing inflammation.

Sinus can be caused due to many reasons. Some of the reasons which cause sinus are:

  • narrow or thin nasal passages and sinus cavities
  • deviation of the nasal septum
  • inflammation of the sinus and nasal tissue due to a variety of nasal factors with or without infection
  • fever or cold
  • allergies
  • environmental pollution
  • asthma

Many alternative therapies, like the chiropractic therapy, not only try to determine the causes, but also treat the symptoms of the problem at the same time. This chiropractic therapy treatment is done to certain specific bones, mucous membranes, joints and muscles through various techniques and measures. This therapy improves the patients’ breathing process and the postnasal drainage as well. Sleeping disorders can be also cured which leads to less headaches than before.

The sinus-specific chiropractic techniques such as sinus draining and endonasal technique, helps in relieving the enormous stress of the nervous system. This helps the body to work more efficiently and move the skull bones freely. This permits the body fluids to drain out easily. 
Sinus specific treatment generally involves soft massage of the nose, forehead and cheeks. Thus, it helps in releasing the pressure on the sinus cavities and easy flow of the fluids.
These specific chiropractic techniques relieve the pressure by increasing sinus drainage. It also helps in treating the muscular pain or the spinal issues, and thus helps in curing the symptoms at large. It relieves you of the immense pain caused by the symptoms of sinus itself. Several other sinus-specific chiropractic treatments, which should be performed by trained practitioners, are:

  • Chiropractic manipulative therapy
  • Nasal-specific technique
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Cranial manipulation

 Thus, Chiropractic-care plays a very significant role in treating the chronic conditions of sinusitis.
