Sinusitis is very common and osteopathy can help relieve symptoms and reduce frequency of infections. It can be aggravated by stress and food sensitivities, particularly dairy and alcohol. However, it can also be affected by neck and shoulder issues, diaphragm tightness, and restrictions between the joints of the skull.

How does osteopathy help?
Osteopaths look at the whole body and take a very extensive medical history to understand how your body is working. It may be that you suffer recurrent sinusitis but on examination and history the osteopath may find that it was a combination of an old whiplash injury, poor posture and the stress of a new job that is overloading your body’s compensatory mechanism. The osteopath will help your body re-adapt by releasing the tensions in the these areas, as well as giving you advice on diet, exercise and stress management.
How many sessions?
This is very individual and depends on factors such as your age and the condition of your body. Some people only need one or two sessions whereas others need many more over a longer period of time.
Will it hurt?
Some of the techniques used may be uncomfortable.
