Traditional Chinese Medicine offers one approach to mitigating the severity of sinusitis and the accompanying symptoms. However, a problem of this nature calls for a multi-dimensional response; at Community Chiropractic & Acupuncture, we evaluate your condition through the lens of Western medicine as well. Chiropractic treatment is a powerful tool in the management of sinusitis. Both treatments are natural and seek to address the root cause rather than the surface symptoms.
That being said, our treatment works in stages: first, we reduce the severity of symptoms to give you immediate relief. Common symptoms associated with sinusitis include headache in the sinuses, stuffiness in the ears and fatigue. These symptoms are usually most pronounced in the morning, because the prone position allows for almost no drainage and mucus accumulates over night. Chiropractic adjustments seeks to remove interference between vertebral nerves and the sinus system. There are also dietary considerations: staying fully hydrated and consuming a diet high in fiber are conducive to healthy sinuses; likewise, exercise and movement are great at promoting air circulation and encouraging drainage.
With the onset of allergy season, sinus infections are on the rise.
