Hello everyone, this is Dr. Aaron Seaton with The Chiropractic Place here in Redding. I am doing another video here about chiropractic, and I see a lot of patients for this, so I wanted to talk about the sinuses in chiropractic. A lot of patients kind of unaware that we can have an impact on the function of their sinuses. And so, I wanted to talk about the two things that I really try to focus on when I see patients who come in with these issues, just to help support with sinus allergy issues. The first thing that we really want to take a good look at when those patients come in is the top of their neck, called the upper cervical spine, and what we do there is make sure that we do upper cervical adjustments to clear out the bones at the top of the neck because the nerves from these areas actually flow to our sinuses and have an impact on how our sinuses function. So as a chiropractor, I'm very concerned about that area when my patients tell me they have ongoing sinus and allergy stuff. I just want to make sure that those nerve channels are open and functioning properly to help the sinuses drain and move stuff along.
The other thing that most people have never heard of associated with chiropractic is adjusting the ears, and we do this little ear technique that helps open up what's called the Eustachian tubes, and the Eustachian tubes are what kind of help our sinuses drain, help the inner ear drain so that you can have your body function at a better level and get this stuff cleared out. So these are two things that we can do in our office that we see when we see patients who are struggling with allergies, are struggling with sinus issues, these are two things that can really help them out during those times, so it's something for you to consider if you've noticed that with your own health that, hey, there's some chiropractic techniques that might be able to help me benefit from this and maybe cause me a little less problems with this as I go through, say the allergy season or something. So this is something for you to keep in mind. If you have any questions about any of this, please contact our office. I'm Dr. Aaron Seaton with The Chiropractic Place.
