Everyone experiences sinus pain from time to time, whether it’s a result of allergies, a cold, or something else. While the first instinct is normally to pick up a packet of sinus relief tablets from the pharmacy, this is a temporary solution that fails to address the root cause of the problem.
Our qualified and experienced chiropractors, on the other hand, can diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions and thus provide long-lasting relief from chronic sinus pain.
Chiropractic care can be beneficial for those suffering from sinus issues because it focuses on the spine and its connection to other parts of the body. The spine is connected to several glands that are responsible for producing hormones and mucus. When these glands become blocked, they can cause inflammation in the lungs, throat, neck and head, which can lead to congestion resulting in sinus problems.
Our chiropractors understand how the spine affects other areas of the body, and we apply gentle spinal manipulation techniques to bring balance back into your system. This helps reduce inflammation and enhances your body’s ability to heal itself naturally.
Additionally, massage therapy has been shown to help reduce congestion by stimulating circulation in the areas surrounding your nasal passages. At SA Wellness Centre, we may apply a combination of chiropractic treatment and massage therapy to alleviate the pain associated with your sinus condition.
Your initial consultation with us will involve an assessment of your posture and alignment as well as a thorough review of any medical history you may have related to your current condition.
Once we’ve determined where the imbalances exist in your spine or muscular system, we can begin treatment with gentle spinal manipulations designed to alleviate pressure on key nerves that affect your sinuses, as well as massage therapy targeting specific areas that need attention.
Depending on the severity of your sinus pain, treatment sessions may vary from once a week for a few weeks up to twice weekly for several months until you’ve reached full relief from your sinus pain.
If you’re looking for an alternative solution for managing chronic sinus issues without relying solely on over-the-counter medications, then consider booking an appointment with our highly skilled team of practitioners at SA Wellness Centre today.
