Chiropractic and Sinus PressureJanuary 2, 2023
Many people experience seasonal allergies, which result from our immune system’s reaction to a foreign substance. Allergens like pollen and mold can trigger this adverse response. While some rely on medication to get through the day with sinus pressure, a chiropractor can provide a long-term natural remedy, without the need for drugs or surgical intervention.
Chiropractic Relief for Sinus Pressure
The human skull has eight hollow spaces that drain mucus from the air passages, called the sinuses. These bones in the forehead, cheeks and temples also trap foreign particles that cause breathing problems. The sinuses can become inflamed due to factors like a rapid change in altitude or chronic allergies, which disrupts mucus drainage. The resulting pressure causes pain in the forehead or cheek area, commonly known as a sinus headache.
Correlation between Chronic Sinus Issues & Immune System Disorders
Multiple studies show a correlation between chronic sinus issues and immune system disorders. One area of expertise among chiropractors is the correction of such immune system imbalances, often caused by spinal misalignment.
The mucus membranes of the sinuses are controlled by the brain and central nervous system. For the body to function properly, these critical systems must work in tangent. When nerves in the spine become compressed, communication from the nervous system to other cells and organs in the body is disrupted. The goal of a chiropractic adjustment is to remove the nerve interference, which also helps ease sinus pressure.
Treatment for Chronic Headaches and Sinus Problems
It is also well known that chiropractic adjustments are an effective, conservative treatment for chronic headaches and migraines. For patients suffering from seasonal allergies and other sinus problems, chiropractic care offers a safe alternative to medicine and surgery.
