Your sinuses are located between your eyes, behind your nasal cavity, in your cheekbones, in your forehead, and are made up of eight hollow cavities.
Sinusitis is a condition that causes swelling in the tissues surrounding these hollow cavities, and acute sinusitis is a condition where fluid blocks these surrounding tissues.
Acute sinusitis is a fairly common condition and often results in a bacterial infection.
When you have acute sinusitis, you are likely to have symptoms such as a runny nose, headache and similar cold-like symptoms that may last for up to four weeks.
People often turn to decongestants and nasal sprays to combat sinusitis, but your Snellville Chiropractor may also be able to provide relief.
Depending on the origin and scope of your sinus pain, the Chiropractic Adjustment may include your neck and/or back.
If you have misaligned vertebrae in your spinal column, the misalignment could add to your sinus issue, making it worse.
Since Chiropractors treat the root cause of your condition and not just the symptoms, the treatment will vary slightly depending on your particular set of circumstances.
It is also important to remember that the nerves coming out of your spine can have an effect on your sinuses. Misalignments of the spine can cause nerve and tissue dysfunction.
