Chiropractic for Colds and Sinus Infections
Over the years, I have I’ve had patients that suffered from routine sinus infections, congestion and routine colds. Many of my patients were unaware that chiropractic treatment can help boost their immune system, treat sinus infections and congestion and help them get over colds more quickly.
What Chiropractic Treatment Helps with Sinus Issues?
Upper cervical neck adjustments relieve the tension on your brain stem, which then allows your throat to be more relaxed and allow your sinus passages in your head to drain. Too much tension in your neck restricts the nervous communication to your sinus passages, which then causes pressure that restricts drainage from happening. Chronic sinus infections happen when there is extra pressure on your sinuses and no outlet for the fluids. These fluids provide a continual breeding ground for bacteria to grow. Antibiotics will kill the bacteria, BUT if you do not remove the fluid they will grow back quickly.
If you have found yourself with a winter-induced cold or sinus infection, I strongly recommend you stop by for a chiropractic adjustment to speed up your recovery. After receiving chiropractic adjustment for colds and sinus infection, most patients will feel their head and sinus passages start to drain within 5 minutes of an adjustment.
