Get Relief And Resolution From Sinuses

What are Sinuses and Why are They Painful?

A sinus is a cavity or empty space between bones. Mucus-producing cells line these empty spaces to provide protection. The production of mucus helps keep the nasal passages moist and acts as an essential part of our immune systems by trapping bacteria and preventing them from invading the body. Whenever an infection is present, mucus production will increase and so will inflammation. A lot of the time this is self-resolving, but then 35 million Americans report symptoms of chronic sinusitis every year. 

According to Dr. Van Alyea, the prevention of free drainage of the sinus is the most common cause of chronic sinusitis. 

Can Chiropractic Care Help Sinuses?

At PEAKiropractic, we use light force technique to facilitate the drainage of the sinuses and restore movement between cranial bones. By allowing proper drainage and movement between the cranial bones, one can find pain relief and decrease in large the occurrence of this disorder. At times, chronic sinusitis may need supplementation for full resolution.
