A sinus infection, also referred to as sinusitis, is relatively common. Allergies and the common cold are often the cause of it. Sinusitis occurs when inflamed tissue swells up, fills with mucus, and cannot normally drain. This results in increased pressure in the sinuses, causing pain, swelling around the eyes, congestion, chills, fever, and dizziness. Many people may be surprised to learn that chiropractic care can help with sinus infections and their symptoms. As a drug-free treatment option, it is an excellent alternative to prescription medications and their possibly harmful side effects. Treatment methods can include chiropractic adjustments to the thoracic spine; percussion to loosen phlegm; massage therapy; and applied pressure across the forehead, nose, and cheek areas.

Whether you’ve been to a chiropractor before or you are trying it for the first time, the chiropractic doctor will want to know specifically about your sinus issues. The doctor might ask you questions to determine the root cause of your problems, such as a deviated septum or allergies, and you can possibly get an x-ray to determine possible misalignments. To schedule an appointment, please call 860-621-2225 or visit us at 200 Queen St Southington.

P.S. The movement of fluids is crucial when it comes to alleviating pain from a sinus infection.
