Acupuncture for Sinus Issues

Sinus problems are one of the most common chronic conditions in the US. Usually, sinus issues, which can also be known as sinusitis can begin with a simple cold and or an allergy episode that causes a swelling of the mucus membranes and an increase in the production of watery mucus. When the sinus mucus changes from clear to green or yellow a bacterial infection may also be present. The mucus build up then blocks the nasal passages and leads to sinus headaches or pressure. Other symptoms may include stuffy nose, facial pressure, a fever, sore throat and even olfactory difficulties.

Typical medical treatments include antibiotics and in some cases even sinus surgery. Antibiotics are not an ideal solution because of unpleasant side effects (nausea or diarrhea for example) because they destroy both bad and good bacteria. This may cause a disruption in the natural flora in the body, leading to yeast infections and other conditions.

Acupuncture Sinus Problems

It is a common practice in China to treat sinus issues with Acupuncture. Acupuncture helps patients reduce the needs for antibiotics and other medications. This is especially helpful for people with chronic or recurrent sinus problems who are seeking ways to avoid the drugs with harmful side effects. Acupuncture is a way to treat sinus issues or allergies.

Another great part of reliving sinus issues with Acupuncture is that you can feel relief very quickly.

Acupuncture at Monmouth Pain and Rehabilitation

Acupuncture has been an effective and popular form of holistic healing in China for thousands of years. This practice (which involves the painless insertion of very fine needles at specific points on the body) has recently become a mainstream practice in the United States as an increasing number of people begin to seek treatments that are healthy, drug-free, and successful.

Because it is a relatively new practice in the Western world, it’s important to ensure the credentials of any acupuncturist. Our facility, located in Monmouth County, New Jersey, incorporates the use of acupuncture with qualified and experienced New Jersey Certified Acupuncturists.
