Do you suffer from chronic sinus headaches and infections? Well there is a a simple and easy explanation to why you have reoccuring symptoms. The answer is your posture and neck position in correlation to the rest of your body. Your sinuses depend fully on gravity to drain properly. In todays society most of us display a head forward posture in comparison to our shoulders. Just look around and you will see plenty of people with this problem, it will amaze you... This is a result of increased activities which require our hands and arms in front of us such as computer work, reading, and driving for example. Without proper alignment of our neck and head, the proper drainage is interfered with and then causes congestion, headaches, and infection. So how do we correct this problem? The use of Chiropractic treatment, postural awareness, stretching (Active Release Technique), and strengthening will over time pull our shoulders and neck back into proper alignment and centering our sinuses with gravity. At Willow Bend Sports & Spine Center we assess the body as a whole and through the use of Active Release Technique, a Lite Cure Type IV or "Hot" Laser therapy, and conservative medications can resolve or significantly reduce your chronic sinus conditions.
