Say Goodbye to Sinus Pressure With Chiropractic Care
By Donna Stark
Oh, the pressure. You feel it everywhere in your head. Behind your eyes, across your face, and in your ears. It's even hard to breathe well, and the pain ... will it ever stop? This isn't your first time to the rodeo so you already know what is wrong, but by now you have to be wondering if there is anything you can do to keep it from happening in the first place. Fortunately, there are some ways to reduce your risk of sinus infections and your local chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic are happy to share a few suggestions.
Establish Routine Chiropractic Adjustments
The precise adjustments your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic provides can help remove the obstructions that cause pain and pressure in your head. Routine chiropractic care helps restore optimal function to your major systems (nervous, respiratory, and immune) by removing nerve interference and clearing the communication pathways of the body. Your chiropractor will also help you navigate any potential changes needed for a healthier lifestyle.
Try Different At-Home Remedies
In addition to regular chiropractic adjustments, there are some things you can do from your own home to find relief and reduce the risk of future infections. Take a look at the following tips.
- Decongestants - Over-the-counter decongestants can help reduce the swelling inside your nasal passages which will make it easier for you to breathe. Be aware, though, that they may only provide relief for a short time.
- Hydration - Keeping your body properly hydrated will reduce the risk of dry, cracked nasal passages which, in turn, will reduce the risk of infections. Carry a water bottle with you at all times. If you don't like the flavor of water, try infusing it with fruit.
- Steam - Whether it comes from a hot shower or a machine, steam will help open your nasal passages and minimize your congestion. Within just a few minutes, you should be able to feel less pressure.
- Humidify - It is important that your nasal passages don't become too dry, so try to add some moisture in your home's air with a humidifier. This will help prevent irritation, encourage proper drainage, and decrease sinus pressure.
Establishing regular chiropractic adjustments and trying different approaches at home is a great way to find relief from your sinus pressure and headaches, and to reduce the risk of them from occurring again in the future. So, come on in to The Joint Chiropractic today. It's the easiest way to get control of all that pressure going on in your head!
