Weather Changes and Your Sinuses

As we enter into spring there also comes drastic changes in both temperature and barometric pressure. Those with sensitive sinuses can tell you about the dramatic (and sometimes painful) affect that fronts of high and low pressure have caused.

Dental patients feel pain and discomfort in their sinuses when the air pressure inside the sinus is unequal to the pressure in the air around us. When the air pressure equalizes the pain and discomfort subside.

Common treatments for this type of discomfort are antihistamines or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. However, some patients have sought message therapy for the face and sinus cavities that has produced tremendous relief.

If you find that you have symptoms of fatigue, headaches, or sinus headaches this spring; let us know during your next Scheduled Appointment and we will be happy to recommend a solution! If you just can’t wait for help, please call our office at 847-685-6686 and we will be more than happy to assist you.
