Sinus and Allergies
Your sinuses consist of eight hollow spaces in the bones of the forehead, cheeks, and temples. Healthy, open sinuses are lined with sticky mucus to ensure that air going into the lungs is moist, warm and free from dust and pollutants. The tissues become full of mucus and drainage is blocked. Increased pressure causes pain, swelling around the eyes, clogged nasal passages, chills, fever, dizziness and loss of appetite.
Since the beneficial effects of chiropractic adjustments on the nervous system are well documented, it’s not surprising many chiropractic patients report a reduction of sinus infections and allergy symptoms when treated regularly for vertebral subluxations.
When this aberrant signal occurs along the same pathway required for the input of normal environmental messages, the body may not interpret the information correctly. When this occurs, an allergic reaction can result.
Many of our patients note significant positive changes in their sinus and allergy symptoms immediately following treatment.
