3 Ways Chiropractic Care Helps Sinus Problems
If you have ever suffered from issues with your sinuses, you know that it can be painful and cause difficulty in carrying out day to day tasks. In addition to the frustration of dealing with sinus issues, they can also lead to headaches and other health problems. While some sinus problems stem from seasonal allergies, there are a number of other reasons someone may be experiencing sinus pain. Many people address this with medications, but that only temporarily covers symptoms and can sometimes lead to side effects that are just as bad as the original problem. Thankfully, visiting a Rochester Hills chiropractor can help. Here are three ways that getting adjusted by Dr. Thomas Madigan and Dr. Brendan Shanahan can relieve sinus pain.
The body’s central nervous system controls the rest of the body, ensuring that messages travel from the brain to the nerves properly. This communication is crucial for the body to function properly. Any small interference can wreak havoc in a variety of ways, and because the central nervous system relies on the spine, this means that even small misalignments in the spine can be responsible for a variety of issues. In the case of sinus pain, it is usually stemming from an inflammation of the sinuses, which are the hollow cavities in the skull. When something is awry like this, it typically means something has become misaligned in the spine. An adjustment from the doctors at Vitality Precision Chiropractic can set the spine back on track, allowing the brain to send messages to reduce inflammation.
One of the most common causes of acute sinus pain is a common cold. While most of us will come down with a cold at some point, our ability to fight it off depends on the strength of our immune system. The immune system fights off viruses and bacteria to prevent illnesses, as well helps us heal quickly from any damage that does occur. Removing spinal misalignments is proven to improve immune function, meaning that a spine that has been properly adjusted will lower your chances of getting sick. When you’re not getting sick, you are less likely to experience sinus pain at all.
Preventing Future Issues
Most people seek care for sinus issues after they have already begun suffering. But chiropractic care is based on maintaining health and wellness to prevent these issues from happening in the first place. Chronic sinusitis, or showing symptoms for more than 12 weeks, is not fun. By visiting a Rochester Hills chiropractor, you can stop these sinus issues before they begin and even see relief from them when they’re currently happening.
