Everyone looks forward to spring. Usually. This change in seasons, though, can mean potential trouble for your sinuses. More specifically, dealing with sinus issues.
Suffering from sinus issues makes it difficult to enjoy the beautiful, warm weather. This causes many people to search for ways to find relief. Sometimes, just taking over-the-counter medications isn’t enough. That’s where chiropractic care comes in.
Symptoms of Sinus Issues
Sinus issues result in feeling pain and pressure all over the head. This pressure is caused by inflammation in the sinuses. As such, patients suffer from headaches, allergies, and even a stuffy nose. In addition, how you breathe – specifically, through the nose – is affected.
Along with this, there are several other symptoms you could have. The most common symptoms are coughing, sneezing, and mucus drainage down the back of the throat. This drainage can result in having a scratchy and sore throat. Some cases, though, include toothaches.
Toothaches occur due to how close the teeth are to the sinus cavities. Patients will experience pain in the upper jaw rather than the entire mouth. More specifically, pain may develop in the upper rear teeth, near the molars.
