What is Nasal Specific?
The nasal specific technique is a method of reestablishing the normal function of the facial and sinus bones in the skull particularly the sphenoid bone.
Who can benefit from Nasal Specific?
The nasal specific technique is very beneficial for those who suffer with recurrent sinus infections, headaches, migraines, snoring, neck pain, jaw pain, and generalized pain. It can also have an effect on other conditions related to the nervous system such as learning disorders, ADD/ADHD, and depression. Individuals that have had any trauma to the neck or head region, such as whiplash or standing up underneath a cupboard door, benefit greatly from this procedure as many times a trauma is what starts one done the path of poor health.
How does Nasal Specific work?
Our bodies are constantly striving for balance neurologically, metabolically, and structurally. If your head is not in proper alignment your body will continually strive to find proper balance. Many times the poor posturing starts from a trauma such as a sporting injury, such as a blow to the face or a header in soccer. Other traumas to the head and neck might be from a whiplash injury, as in an automobile accident. Regardless of the mechanism of injury these types of traumas cause the nerves, bones, and muscles to go into a state of shock and stop functioning properly. In order to restore balance using this technique, specific nasal balloons are inserted into the nasal cavity after a thorough history and neurological exam. The balloon is quickly inflated, deflated, and then removed. This process puts pressure on the tissue in front of the sphenoid bone within the skull flexing and shifting the cranial plates releasing built up pressure on the brain, cerebrospinal fluid tubes, and blood vessels. Therefore, balance is reestablished and the body is able to function at its optimal potential.
