By  Dr. Todd Osborne

Sinus, Sinus Relief, Sinus Problems, Sinus Pressure, Chronic Fatigue, Sinus Infections, Congested Sinus problems are very common. Some suffer from sinus congestion while others are dealing with chronic sinus infections. These conditions can last for years, and it may seem like there is no end in sight. One might find it interesting to learn that 90% of so-called sinus problems are actually misdiagnosed headache syndromes. If the sinuses are unable to drain correctly, problems can ensue. These include:

  • Allergies
  • Colds and flu
  • Pain
  • Sleep problems
  • Fatigue

To care for sinus issues, those in American spend over $5 billion yearly. What are the most popular types of therapies?

  • Decongestants
  • Nasal steroids
  • Antihistamines
  • Neti pot or other sinus rinses
  • Sinus surgery in 500,000 cases

A connection has been noted between sinus symptoms, fatigue, and chronic pain according to doctors at Georgetown University Medical Center. In a study conducted involving 300 patients with sinus problems, 22% complained of unexplained fatigue, while 11% had chronic pain.

What’s at the Root of Sinus Problems?

All 3 conditions—sinus problems, fatigue, and pain—may have the same root cause. A connection has been seen between these conditions and a misalignment of the upper neck vertebrae. The bones of the upper neck are susceptible to misaligning due to their great range of motion. Even minor accidents or trauma to the head and neck can create a misalignment.

A misalignment of only ¼ of a millimeter is enough to wreak havoc on the entire body, including the sinuses. The soft tissue that helps keep the spine in proper alignment may become torn, leading to a breakdown of the spine itself. This causes pressure to be put on the brainstem and, in turn, problems with sleep, pain, sinuses, and fatigue.

At Scenic City Clinic of Chiropractic, we encourage the bones to move back into place without having to pop or force them into place. After this gentle adjustment, the healing properties of the body take over and begin to repair the damage. Often this is all that is needed to help drain the sinuses and relieve the headaches and pain that go along with sinus problems.
