Aside from treating neck and back pain, chiropractic treatment helps calibrate the body to perform in an optimum capacity.
Tension in the neck and spine can cause the sinuses to become congested, interrupting your normal breathing rhythm.
One way that chiropractic treatment helps our patients is that it boosts the immune system, which helps your body ward off colds and infection more effectively. Chiropractic adjustments, especially in the targeted at the upper cervical area (which is at the neck), has been shown to relieve tension that occurs in the brainstem. This tension can cause headaches and congestion, which is why the adjustment can often improve your sinus passages and inspire them to drain.
Chiropractic treatments have been shown to improve breathing and respiratory system functionality — even for those with lung disease and asthma.
As we learn more about the body and particularly the sinuses, we’re learning that bacteria and germs like to hide in the nose and sinuses — it’s one way that COVID-19 has been attacking people. Keeping clear sinuses and working to improve your respiratory system will work hand-in-hand in keeping you healthy and active.
