I've had allergies and asthma my whoe life (I'm 42). I am thinking of trying a chiropractor for my sinus/allergy problems. I'm wondering if anyone has had any relief from going to one?
I'm on singulair, zyrtec, q-var, nasalcort and I'm using a nasal saline rinse and my post nasal drip is still miserable. I also just had to do a short course of prednisone for an asthma flare up and I'd really like to avoid taking prednisone again if I could!
Have you considered going to an allergist? I use to work for a Chiropractor/kinesiologist and I never heard him giving treatment for allergies. He did prescribe a lot of homeopathic remedies but for different issues.
for sinus yes, allergies i wouldn't think that it would help. Mine would "reshape" my sinuses.. quite uncomfortable but i think it helped keep things draining. There is an area of your spine/neck that deals with your sinuses. I tend to have a lot of pressure built up when i'm having issues.
I am curious about this as well, especially for sinus pressure. I actually remember my chiropractor mentioning that neck/spine misalignments can cause sinus troubles. I am actually going back to help my neck, and I'm HOPING that my sinus problems will be better. In any case, I figured I would try this first, since I have to fix my neck anyway.
I did start having trouble with both around the same time...
i went this past Saturday.. still getting used to my new chiro (his brother..my guy died ) Did i ever have pressure built up. I asked him if he did sinuses too. His brother used his hands to "reshape" sinuses. Micheal used the activator tool and did 3 punches across the forehead and one on each cheek. He asked if it hurt and i said yes, but i was trying to figure out which way hurt more. He said if i hadn't been congested it wouldn't have hurt. He also gave me sinusitis drops to try. I don't have the pressure in my face any more... so i'm happy!
