Sinus pain is often due to immense pressure being applied to the wall of the sinus cavity. There are various reasons for this, such as:
- Sinus infection, where nasal swelling causes allergic reactions which may put even more pressure on adjacent sinuses.
- Too much stagnant mucous within the sinus, promoting bacterial growth.
- A vacuum state within the cavity may develop caused by swelling which in turn leads to a stuffy nose and really bad pain.
Those who suffer from sinusitis have more than one sinus blocked and infected, where most symptoms cannot be relied upon to point out exactly where the infections and inflamed areas are.
As the areas of infection may be spread out, sufferers may experience differing symptoms, where a bad headache first thing in the morning is the first sign that sinuses may be inflamed. Cheeks, teeth and jawbones may experience sensitivity and pain when touched especially if the maxillary sinuses are affected.
Other symptoms include;
- Stuffed nose
- Post nasal drip
Most medical treatments include steroid type nose-drops and antibiotics. In many cases several types of antibiotics are prescribed to clear a sinus infection. In chronic sinusitis this medical treatment can go for extended time. But let’s face the truth here, most of us do not enjoy such medications if not necessary as these chemical substances do wreak havoc on our bodies, not to mention they cost an arm and a leg!
One of the more natural ways to solve sinusitis issues that has been gaining more and more recognition is that of salt therapy. This therapy brings relatively quick relief when it comes to diminish the pressure in sinuses and clearing the mucus blocked there; the pain and inflammation reduce as well and salt therapy prevents the occurrence of these symptoms from flaring up as frequently.
Salt therapy is known to kill bacteria and allows for the airways to be cleared of mucous and inflammation. It’s a safe and effective form of treatment for sinusitis and even younger kids can benefit from utilizing a device such as the SaltAir – home salt therapy device.
