With the cold and flu season during the winter, many people can suffer from painful sinus problems. Reaching for over-the-counter sinus and cough medications may only provide temporary sinus pressure relief. These medicines can make symptoms worse and lead to chronic sinus infections. Chiropractic care is a natural solution that can help prevent and treat sinus issues for longer lasting relief.

Causes of Sinus Pressure

There are several causes for sinus pressure buildup. Certain medications and immune deficiencies can lead to swelling and discomfort in the nasal passages. Sinusitis can be contracted from others with illnesses or from allergens in the air. Smokers and those exposed to secondhand smoke can develop uncontrollable coughing and sinus pressure from inhalation.

How Chiropractic Care Works for Sinus Pressure Relief

The central nervous system in your body is responsible for sending messages for proper functioning. If the spine is misaligned, it can create nerve interference that may be at the root of sinus issues. Realigning the spine can improve immune system function to prevent and fight off sinus infections for optimal health.

At Georgia Spinal Health, Dr. Bradley Hochman specializes in chiropractic techniques that can aid in sinus pressure relief. These techniques manually adjust the cervical spine to release blockages and drain the sinuses. This process relaxes the body and stimulates nerves to reduce inflammation and swelling. Additional at-home therapy can be combined with chiropractic treatments to promote faster healing.

Chiropractic Adjustments for Sinus Pressure Relief

Sinusitis may be caused by an allergic reaction and should be treated immediately. If left untreated, it can lead to sinus infections that can cause serious health issues. If you suffer from chronic sinus infections, chiropractic care can help you achieve sinus pressure relief.
