Clear Your Sinuses with an Upper Cervical Chiropractic Adjustment
Suffering from sinus problems is no fun, but an Upper Cervical chiropractic adjustment can help relieve the pain and correct the condition. You can breathe clearly as you hike in the Santa Monica Mountains or head to the office in downtown Los Angeles without any sinus pain.
Why would you adjust the neck for a sinus condition? Read on to see how our nerves are connected.
Nerves Impact Your Sinuses
Your nervous system is like today's technology-it's great when it works well. But when there's a glitch in the system, like suffering from sinusitis, then you can feel it day and night. Nerve fibers run from your brain and send signals throughout your body in a highly connected network.
Your sinus membrane is controlled by the Greater Petrosal Nerve. It doesn't just act on its own, but branches off from the 7th cranial nerve. A detailed description is available from the Blair Upper Cervical Society.
Here is how your Upper Cervical spine impacts your nervous system and your sinus condition.
Correcting Nerve Interference is Essential
Patients of mine and those who hear me speak in public will hear me say one particular phrase again and again: correcting nerve interference at the brainstem level. This is what I do as an Upper Cervical chiropractor in Los Angeles.
Misalignment of your top two vertebrae, the C1, atlas and C2, axis, can pinch the nerves running through the brainstem. The signals they receive from the brain are then compromised. Your brainstem is a control center and relays signals affecting functions like breathing, digestion, and your heart's ability to operate well.
How Upper Cervical Misalignment Happens
Most people think of seeing a chiropractor after they've had a car accident and have back pain. But misalignment of the top two vertebrae happens gradually every day.
Sleeping on a bad pillow, sitting in an awkward position looking at your phone or your laptop, or walking with a backpack slung over one shoulder can cause the vertebrae to pinch the nerves.
How I Correct Conditions like Sinusitis
Through the use of 3D X-rays, I can pinpoint the area of nerve interference and show you. I then scan the neck on each patient visit and we can track how your alignment improves. Putting the vertebrae back into alignment is a gentle procedure and there is no twisting or popping of the neck.
Removing pressure on the nerves restores the brain-body connection at the brainstem which is the communication source.
Sinus sufferers may take prescription pills and nasal sprays, but these won't correct the source of the problem. An Upper Cervical chiropractic adjustment can.
