We are in the middle of cold and flu season and it is this time of year that many people suffer from chronic sinus infections and congestion after an upper respiratory infection. Rather than reaching for the decongestant day after day, there may be a better, more permanent solution for you. The nasospecific technique is the insertion and inflation of a finger cot inside the nasal passages to realign the surrounding bones. By opening up the nasal passage, nasal discharge is able to flow appropriately so it doesn’t pool in the nasal passages and create a breeding ground for bacteria, viruses and fungus. Mike Sorensen, chiropractor Redmond, OR and Katie Mercer, naturopath Redmond OR both perform this safe, non-invasive technique.
