Many people experience seasonal allergies, which are immune system reactions when your body is exposed to foreign substances. Allergens such as mold and pollen can trigger an adverse response. While many people depend on medication to get through the sinus pressure, chiropractic care can provide a long-term remedy without surgical intervention or drugs.

What is Sinus Pressure?

The human skull has hollow spaces that drain mucus from the sinuses, also called the air passages. These hollow spaces are in the cheeks, forehead and temples. They also trap foreign particles causing breathing problems.

The sinuses can become inflamed due to different factors, including chronic allergies and altitude changes, which affect mucus drainage. Inflamed sinuses result in pressure which causes pain in the cheek area and the forehead, commonly called a sinus headache.

Studies have linked chronic sinus issues with immune system disorders. Chiropractors have linked immune system imbalances to spinal misalignment.

Chiropractic Care for Sinuses

The central nervous system and the brain control mucus membranes of the sinuses. All these systems must be in a tangent for the body to work as it should. This means that when the nerves in the spine are compressed, the communication between the cells and the organs from the nervous system is disrupted.

A chiropractic adjustment aims to correct any interference that can help ease the sinus pressure, inhibiting drainage from the sinus. Our chiropractors in New Jersey may use a technique to insert small balloons in your nasal cavity to open it up.

Chiropractic care may also be supplemented with other forms of treatment, including cold and heat therapy and a massage. In addition to that, our chiropractors may also recommend stretching techniques and nasal massages when you get home to relieve your sinuses problems. In other cases, our chiropractor may also make dietary and lifestyle recommendations to relieve your sinuses problems.
