Kansas City Chiropractor Helps Head Cold, Congested Nose, and Sinus Pressure with Chiropractic Adjustments
It seems like colds and congestion and sinus infections are really going around this winter in Kansas City. In the last 6 weeks I've lost count of the number of patients dealing with these symptoms. Unless they know that Chiropractic Adjustments can help their cold and sinus problems, they are usually getting Chiropractic for something else, like neck pain or back pain.
Here's the exciting part...nearly EVERY patient left the office with less cold symptoms, less sinus pain and pressure, or with the ability to breathe through their nose! That may not be exciting to you, but when you are suffering with a cold or sinus issues, any kind of relief feels like heaven!
How does Chiropractic help colds, congestion, and sinus pressure?
Chiropractors work on removing interference or pressure from the nervous system with Chiropractic Adjustments.  Gentle adjustments to the spine and joints bring that area into proper alignment and take pressure off the nervous system. In 100% of the patients I have seen with colds or sinus congestion there are also spinal misalignments of the neck and upper back. Once a patient has been adjusted, nearly all patients report an immediate change and improvement in their head and upper respiratory symptoms.
Instantaneous improvement has been reported with:
-head and sinus congestion
-sinus headaches
-runny nose
-stuffy congested nose
-breathing through the nose
-breathing and chest expansion
-decreased "rattling" in the chest
-energy levels
-mental focus
How soon will I see results from Chiropractic for my head congestion and sinus pressure?
Every patient is different, so there is not one answer for everyone. Nearly every patient I see that has head congestion, sinus pressure, etc reports improvement or decrease in their symptoms before they leave the office after their Chiropractic Adjustment.
Does this mean I should stop taking any medication for these symptoms?
I never advise patients to stop taking medication without discussing it with the prescribing Doctor. I do find that patients heal faster with Chiropractic, and their need for cold medicine reduces drastically in a short period of time.
Are you ok with seeing me in the office if I have a sinus infection or head congestion?
Yes, as long as you are not experiencing vomiting (throwing up) or diarrhea or uncontrollable bowel movements, I can usually see you the same day for your sinus pressure or head cold.
