We've all been there. Itchy/watery eyes, the congestion, headaches, dry throat, and even earaches/ ear infections. Sometimes the seasons changing are a lot easier on the eyes than they are on the sinuses.
Typically, the treatments for chronic rhinitis (caused by allergies and sinus congestion) are nasal sprays, allergy meds, and decongestants (in severe cases mostly). But there may be a more natural approach to sinus relief you haven't considered: chiropractic care.
Chiropractors understand the anatomical structure of nerves, bones, and communication pathways throughout the body. That includes sinus cavities and nasal passages. Since allergic reactions result in inflammation and the blockage of these passages, the solution is to open the passages and reduce inflammation.
This can be accomplished through simple manipulations of the passages and the bones that support them. As an end result, the swelling and inflammation in the passages decreases which promotes drainage of the sinuses and reduces congestion and the probability for sinus infections.
Be sure to consult a licensed physician if you have any questions regarding your allergies/sinuses. If it is indeed your allergies, keep chiropractic care in mind!
