Chiropractic Austin TX How Does Chiropractic Care Help Sinus Issues

Sinuses are hollow areas within the cranium that are dispersed throughout the forehead, the upper cheek, and sides of your head and they facilitate your breathing. Chances are if you’ve faced an illness, you understand the stiffness associated with your sinuses becoming clogged, irritated, and overfilled with mucous. Contact our Austin chiropractor today to learn more.

The mucous in your sinuses is more than just an irritant: it traps germs and foreign matter and flushes them out. However, when your sinuses fail to drain, those germs that the body is trying to expel end up having an extended stay. The result is not only increased pressure within the head, but worsening symptoms. The medical term for this phenomenon is sinusitis. About 33% of sinus issues are the result of colds. A further 33% are the result of allergens. The rest of sinus issues typically arise from asthma and environmental factors. You might experience sleeplessness, migraines, and/or prolonged coughing.


How Can Chiropractic Help In Austin

When your spine is misaligned (known as subluxation), it can interfere with normal functions of your nervous system, which can lead to sinusitis. The mucous in your sinuses rely on signals from your spine to operate.

So, it’s pretty simple, if the sinuses are allowed to properly drain, relief is felt. Chiropractic adjustments can help by relieving any interferences affecting your nervous system to relieve pressure on the nerves which improves function. When your nervous system is up and running, your body is able to regain some flexibility. This flexibility allows an increased range of motion throughout the head and neck area. As a result, a few adjustments and carefully applied pressure to the sinuses can lead to sinus relief.

Many people who suffer from sinus issues report feeling relief after receiving chiropractic adjustments for these reasons:

  1. Improved cervical spine function which improves the normal nerve functions.
  2. Improved nerve functions boost immunities which fight off colds and infections.
  3. Relieves stress and promotes relaxation which can help alleviate some symptoms.
  4. Promotes proper drainage by improving lymphatic flow, allowing the sinuses to drain more effectively.
