You may be aware that chiropractic adjustments can improve a lot of conditions, but did you know it can help manage sinusitis and seasonal allergies? 



Your sinuses are hollow spaces within the bones of the cheeks and forehead. Sinuses problems occur when mucus takes over your tissues and blocks drainage. This increased pressure, in effect, causes clogged nasal passages, swelling, and other forms of pain.

Spinal manipulations of the cervical spine can promote sinus drainage, which can be the leading cause of pain and discomfort.

When dealing with sinusitis and seasonal allergies, Dr. Shoemaker and Dr. Alex first suggested getting your chiropractic adjustment. 



Here are a few other tips we suggest at Clairpointe Family Chiropractic that can help you manage your sinus discomfort at home.  


Dr. Shoemaker suggests taking a high-quality powdered vitamin C from Pinnacle Laboratories and Sinatrol or Natural D-Hist from Ortho Molecular Products to help you manage your sinus discomfort.  Watch Dr. Shoemake explain the benefits of these supplements in our video below. 


Use a Neti pot to flush your nasal passages. Remember to use distilled or sterile water. 


Drink lots of water to help thin your mucus. Avoid caffeinated or alcoholic beverages, which can cause dehydration. 


Get plenty of rest to help your body fight infection and speed up recovery. 


Breathe in warm steam from a bowl of water or take a hot shower to help ease sinus pain and open your nasal passages.  


Use a humidifier or vaporizer in your room while you sleep to add moisture to the air and help reduce congestion. 


A high-quality air filter will help to keep allergens from circulating throughout your home, giving you relief from your symptoms. 


Some people may experience excess thick mucus in their throat after eating or drinking dairy products. 

Watch Dr. Shoemaker below explain how each of these supplements can benefit you during the allergy season.
