The Season of the Sinus!
There is nothing worse than waking up feeling tired or with a bad headache Your ears are blocked and your head feels like it is going to explode. Your sinuses are blocked and you know you are in for a miserable day. But reaching for the instant relief of a nasal spray or decongestant or heading to the medical centre in search of antibiotics can be the worst thing you can do for your sinus.
Understanding the possible causes of sinus problems will help you find the right long-term solution to the problem.
The four main culprits are
• Bacterial infection e.g. streptococcus
• Moulds from damp regions in the house
• Allergies e.g seasonal, foods, chemicals
Blocked sinus are a sign that your immune system has gone into battle mode to clear the problem and it is in fact a good sign – a sign that your body needs some help to overcome the problem. But traditional sinus treatments – while they alleviate the symptoms so you can get through the day – do nothing to help the body fight and repair the affected area.
At the forefront of non-invasive treatments for sinus conditions that help, not hinder the immune system, is Cold Laser Therapy. Using Cold Laser Therapy, the affected areas are treated, helping to reduce inflammation, and giving, in some cases, instant relief to the patient.
The therapist will also work on the lymphatic system, stimulating the immune system to do its job both more effectively and efficiently. The body will continue to respond and heal, even after the treatment is complete.
In addition, Cold Laser Therapy has a cumulative effect and will continue to help strengthen the body’s immune system more and more following each treatment session.
How does it work?
When the cold laser is placed over the injured tissues or cells of the body, light energy is absorbed. This action stimulates the damaged cells to increase their energy production, which means damaged cells repair themselves much faster.
