Sinusitis can occur during any season, and summer is no exception. If you’ve ever experienced sinus pain, you probably recognize that it stems from your sinuses, which reside in your cheekbones and behind your nasal cavity. Your sinuses amount to eight hollow cavities that, when their surrounding tissues are inflamed, can result in sinusitis. Acute sinusitis refers to the condition in which one or more of your eight sinus cavities are blocked by fluid. This condition can, and often does, lead to a bacterial infection that necessitates antibiotic intervention.
If you’re experiencing acute sinusitis, you’re probably also experiencing distinct symptoms:
- Runny nose;
- Clogged breathing;
- Elevated temperature; and/or
- Other cold-like symptoms.
This condition will typically last up to four miserable weeks, and you’ll probably be tempted to turn to over-the-counter nasal sprays, pain medications, and/or decongestants to battle your ongoing discomfort. Chiropractic care, however, is a healthier option.
Chiropractic Care and Sinusitis
Sinusitis can present in many different forms and your own sinus pain is probably unique to you. In fact, your sinus pain may well be dependent upon its level of severity and its origination in your sinuses. If you’re experiencing sinus pain or sinus blockage of any kind, a skilled chiropractor can help. An experienced chiropractor will carefully examine the physiology of your symptoms and will provide appropriate chiropractic adjustments.
Often, spinal misalignments are determined to be the cause of – or contributing factors to – sinusitis; and chiropractic care is well equipped to accommodate such conditions. Many people who suffer from chronic sinusitis find themselves on a rollercoaster of doctor appointments, specialist referrals, and laundry lists of antibiotic prescriptions. Skilled chiropractic care, however, can get you off that roller coaster and can guide you toward true sinus-health. When it comes to chronic sinusitis, do not underestimate the power of chiropractic care.
Benefits of Chiropractic Care
Chiropractic care – unlike antibiotic medications – can provide you with the means to allow your body to heal itself and to fight off future sinus infections. Chiropractic care can get you off the doctor appointment, specialist, and antibiotic prescription rollercoaster. In fact, it can help you find lasting and meaningful relief from chronic sinusitis.
