When suffering from a sinus infection (sinusitis) or sinus congestion, many people turn to decongestant and antihistamine medications for relief. These medications often come with some unwanted symptoms, including drowsiness, headaches, anxiety, and even increased blood pressure. Many people are turning to natural treatment methods to alleviate sinus congestion, and one method in particular tends to come as a surprise: chiropractic.
Chiropractic care is often sought out for back and neck pain, but many people do not know chiropractors can help with a variety of other conditions, including sinus congestion. By using techniques that target the nasal cavity and mucous membranes, chiropractors can help to promote sinus drainage without the use of drugs. A licensed chiropractor will gently make adjustments to the upper back and neck to stimulate the nerves that lead to the nasal cavity. Depending on the severity of sinus congestion, a chiropractor may target facial bones as well.
These techniques help to promote healing, reduce swelling and promote drainage, in turn alleviating pain and pressure. To further expedite recovery, chiropractic can be combined with other treatment methods like acupuncture, natural supplements, and massage.
Chiropractic for Sinusitis Prevention
Not only can chiropractic care alleviate sinus congestion, but it can even prevent a sinus infection. By using a combination of nerve-targeting and chiropractic manipulation techniques, chiropractors can successfully prevent sinusitis without the use of drugs. This is particularly helpful for those who suffer from chronic sinusitis.
