sinus-problems-linked-health-issuesIn the U.S alone, nearly 29.4 million adults have been diagnosed with sinusitis. Those living in the U.S spend $5.8 billion every year on treatment for sinus problems. If the fluid does not drain properly out of the sinuses, it leads to numerous health problems such as colds, increased allergies, and tiredness.

There are various forms of care available. Decongestants, neti pots, nasal steroid sprays, and herbal remedies are only a few. Nearly 500,000 people annually resort to surgery to get relief from their symptoms.

The Root of Sinus Problems

Researchers have discovered that many sinus problems are misdiagnosed and actually have a root cause in the head or neck. Recent studies show that many people have fatigue and pain in connection with their sinus issues. A group of 297 sinus patients reported that 22% of them also had unexplained chronic fatigue, while 11% had unexplained chronic pain, and 9% experienced both. What was found to be the cause? The results showed a link to misalignments in the upper neck.

How Upper Cervical Misalignments Occur

When someone has an auto accident or experiences trauma to the head or neck, the connective tissue can be damaged. Because the upper neck is the most flexible, it is vulnerable to more problems. The flexibility of the upper neck is good when you need to turn your head, but it’s not so good when you experience a misalignment.

The C1 and C2 are the uppermost vertebrae of the neck. A misalignment of either of these can put pressure on the brainstem and cause it to no longer function properly. One of the effects this can have is dysfunction of cortisol release. This leads to chronic fatigue and sinus problems.

A medical doctor, chiropractor, and a psychiatrist got together to study this. They concluded that when the upper neck was adjusted back into proper position, the patient's overall health improved significantly. Cortisol readings normalized over a 6-month period. As a result, the patients experienced a decrease of chronic fatigue, sinus, and chronic pain symptoms. In summary, an adjustment to the upper cervical area of the neck can help your overall health and lead to a happier and healthier life.

Sinus, Sinus Relief, Sinus Problems, Sinus Pressure, Chronic Fatigue, Sinus Infections, Congested A recent study revealed a connection between those suffering from chronic pain conditions, sinusitis, and problems such as chronic fatigue. The study was conducted at Georgetown University Medical Center and included 297 people that fell into the following categories:

Interestingly, sinus problems were seen in the majority of these people, especially in those with unexplained fatigue. Why is this significant?

The Underlying Cause of Sinus Problems

Sinus problems have been linked to a misalignment in the bones of the upper cervical spine. In particular, a problem in the top two bones of the neck (C1 and C2) can be to blame as they can place undue stress on the brainstem, causing it to send improper signals to the brain. A misalignment of only ¼ of a millimeter can cause a number of serious health problems throughout the body. When the neck is misaligned due to previous trauma, such as a vehicle accident or a trip and fall, the connective tissue of the spine breaks down and locks the spine into a position of stress. The weight of the vertebrae pulls the muscles down and causes the entire spine to shift out of place. This leads to such problems as reduced fluid flow to the brain and sinus issues.

Finding Help for Sinus Issues and Chronic Fatigue

Both of these conditions can be improved by seeking the care of an upper cervical chiropractor. Here at Advanced Spinal Care in Redwood City, California, we have been trained to find the misalignments of the upper neck, even if they are very tiny. We then employ a gentle and precise method to help them move back into place more naturally than popping or forcing them. Once corrected, patients report seeing sinus problems, chronic fatigue, and their overall health improve dramatically.

Sinus Problems, Sinus, Sinus Relief, Chronic FatigueSinus problems are not at all easy to deal with. They affect many people. One thing these people have in common is that they are regularly feeling congested or are experiencing sinus infections that may last for long periods of time, even years. The reason for this is that the sinuses are not draining properly when a person has a cold, the flu, or allergies. Other symptoms that go along with this are pain and extreme tiredness.

Medical doctors try to help their patients by prescribing decongestants, antihistamines, and nasal steroids. This costs $5.8 billion a year! Another option available is sinus surgery. About 500,000 people have chosen this to treat their sinuses in the USA. This can lead to complications if a person is not diagnosed correctly. Sometimes what appears to be a sinus problem is actually a misdiagnosed headache syndrome. This is true in as much as 90% of cases.

A Link to Chronic Fatigue?

A study performed at the Georgetown Medical Center revealed that there is a possible connection between unexplained body pain, fatigue, and sinus problems. This is something that had not previously been discovered. In this study, 297 patients were involved. Of them, 22% had chronic fatigue, 11% had chronic pain, and 9% had both chronic fatigue and pain. The discovery made was that one underlying problem among them was chronic sinus problems.

What Can Help Sinus Problems?

While this is very interesting information, a person may be wondering what can be done. One simple solution is to seek the care of an upper cervical chiropractor. We specialize in making sure the vertebrae of the neck are in proper alignment. If they are not, undue pressure may be being placed on the brainstem. This can cause all kinds of problems in the body. The sinuses may not be draining properly due to such a misalignment. Once corrected, our patients have reported a vast improvement in symptoms of sinus problems, chronic fatigue, and chronic pain.

Allergies, Allergy, Sinus, PollenDo feel like there is no solution to your allergies? Many people do. Medications can be somewhat helpful, but they are not addressing the underlying issues causing the problem. Once you have tried a number of these, you realize they may help temporarily, but they will not cure the problem with your sinuses. Sometimes you even have to take several types of medication at one time to find relief. Again, this is only temporary. Some find that steroid sprays do help the inflammation of their sinuses. But this is only treating one symptom, not the root cause.

What Causes Allergy Symptoms?

If you are experiencing allergies, it is probably something in your environment that is making your body put up a defense. It is a natural reaction to foreign invaders, but it is happening at the wrong time or too often. It is good that your immune system is working to get rid of toxins in your body, but it seems to be getting mixed signals as to what is really a threat to your system. One potential reason this may be happening has to do with a misalignment in the upper cervical area of your neck. This needs to be corrected.

What Can Be Done?

If you do, in fact, have a misalignment in your neck, this can keep the brainstem from sending the proper signals to your brain, and therefore, your sinuses. Correcting these misalignments will keep your head balanced and in its proper place, and your immune system will function at a much higher level.

Upper cervical chiropractors, such as Dr. Pete Tsiglieris of Redwood City, California, can help you with this problem. Special techniques and tools are used to examine the neck and detect where your specific misalignment is. Then Dr. Tsilglieris can begin to correct the problem and restore proper function back to your brainstem. This has been proven to result in improvement in allergy and sinus symptoms. Make an appointment today for your assessment, and begin living a life with fewer allergies as soon as possible.

Allergies, Allergy, Sinus, PollenAre you suffering from congestion on a regular basis or chronic sinus infections? Maybe both have plagued you for many years. Have you been told that you have sinus problems? Did you know that almost ninety percent of sinus problems are actually headache syndromes that have been misdiagnosed? If your sinuses are not draining properly, it will cause you to have a number of issues, such as sleep problems, colds and flu, fatigue, allergies, pain, and much more. We will talk about what causes this a little later. For now, let’s discuss what you can do to find relief.

The common response leads those in the USA to spend $5.8 billion a year on sinus treatments. These include nasal steroids, decongestants, and antihistamines. Others use neti pots or other nasal rinses to clear out their sinuses. Some five hundred thousand people actually resort to having sinus surgery every year!

Doctors at Georgetown University Medical Center have come across a connection with sinus symptoms, chronic pain, and fatigue. Almost three hundred patients presented with sinus problems. Of these, twenty-two percent had unexplained fatigue, and eleven percent had chronic pain.

What’s the Cause?

A similar problem may be at the root of all three conditions. It can be related to a misalignment in the upper neck. The upper neck area is the most vulnerable to injury due to accidents, even minor ones. The tissue that holds the spine in place can become torn. This causes the spine to breakdown and then lock into a position of stress. When a misalignment of this type occurs, it affects the brainstem. In turn, this leads to problems with fatigue, sleep, pain, and sinuses.

Contact Dr. Pete Tsiglieris of Redwood City, California to find out if you could have a brainstem injury that may be causing your sinus problems. Dr. Tsiglieris is trained in upper cervical chiropractic care. He can assess you and begin to fix the misalignments in your neck. This will bring relief to your sinus problems and improve your quality of life. Call today to schedule an appointment.

Allergies, Allergy, Sinus, PollenUpper Cervical Chiropractic care doesn’t treat allergies. So, why do so many people with allergies mention that they see improvement by receiving care in our practice?

It's Not the Pollen

There are many signs of an allergic reaction. Itchy eyes. Runny nose. Sneezing. Skin rash. More serious reactions can include constricted air passageways, vomiting and even death. All this from a handful of peanuts, an encounter with a cat or microscopic grains of pollen in the air!

Allergen Fear?

Your body inappropriately perceives the allergen as a threat.

If everyone reacted to these common substances, we could fix the blame squarely on the nut, dander, shellfish or pollen. But not everyone reacts.

What is it?

Inappropriate Threat

Your nervous system is the master system that orchestrates your immune system, glandular system, respiratory system and every other system that reacts inappropriately to an allergen. Normally, these systems help you respond and adapt to the world around you. But suffering from uncontrollable sneezing around a house cat is probably an inappropriate reaction.

If your nervous system isn’t working right, you don’t work right. So, rather than direct our attention to the countless potential allergens, we locate and reduce the disturbances we find  to your nervous system.

A Full Bucket

Each of us was born with the capacity to withstand or adapt to stress. If we’re unable to deal with things we eat, breathe or come into contact with it may be because our margin to adapt is used up.

Pretend that this bucket represents your capacity to adapt to the physical, emotional and chemical stresses of life. Every stressful encounter your body faces, fills up  your bucket. If your bucket is already full and you encounter pollen, foods or other chemicals, your bucket overflows.

When that happens, people say they’re having an allergic reaction. But what they’re really saying is, “I’ve lost my ability to adapt. My margin is used up.”

Upper Cervical Chiropractic: Nervous System

So, we don’t treat allergies. We look for ways to restore your ability to adapt to allergens by locating and reducing disturbances to your nervous system. Simple, really.

Who do you know that isn't adapting to the stressors in their life?   Allergies?   Chronic Pain?   Sinus problems?

allergies, sick child, children, allergic reactionAn Overactive Immune System

Is your child struggling with allergies?

Does it seem like they are just always sick?

It may be that they have an overactive immune system.

10% of all children are struggling with allergies.  Allegra, Benadryl, Claritin, Zyrtec, Sudafed and Clarinex are commonly given to children for allergies.

But why is it that 2 children can be exposed to the same environment and have 2 completely different reactions?

Our amazing nervous system controls are immune system. When there is interference with the function of the nervous system the immune system doesn’t work right.

Small injuries at the top of neck disrupt the brain’s ability to properly regulate immunity leading to an overreaction by the immune system.
