Your sinuses play a crucial role in your health. In some situations, they can cause you to suffer from many chronic problems and impact your quality of life. Many doctors rely on antibiotics to confront sinus infections, but many patients want to avoid overreliance on them. An innovative strategy to deal with sinus issues before they begin is to drain them. Our professionals at New York ENT can help drain your sinuses and help restore your quality of life. Here are a few ways that sinus draining can help you and the methods of sinus draining that can help you.
Mucus buildup in the sinuses can cause many uncomfortable symptoms such as congestion, headache, colds, and sinusitis. Sometimes mucus buildup occurs due to an influx of allergens becoming trapped in the sinuses. One way to address the issue is to use a Netti Pot to help flush the sinuses and rid yourself of irritants. The saline solution from the Netti Pot can wash away bacteria and allergens that give your body problems, helping bring you comfort and relief from sinus pressure.
Another way to get relief from sinus congestion is by taking a steam bath. Many experts believe that taking a shower with hot water or sitting in a steamy bathroom can help relieve the pressure and congestion that can come with sinus issues. If you have an illness such as a cold or sinusitis resulting from sinus congestion, a steam bath can help relieve other symptoms like chest congestion, coughing, and sinus headaches.
