What is sinusitis?
Sinusitis is an extremely common condition that usually affects younger people, from children to middle-aged adults. Sinusitis occurs when the sinuses that are normally filled with air become filled with mucus. This mucus allows bacteria to grow and infect the sinuses. This can cause sinusitis, which is characterized by swelling and inflammation of tissues that line the sinuses.
Symptoms of sinusitis include:
Tenderness, pain and/or swelling around your eyes, nose, forehead or cheeks
Nasal congestion and having difficulty breathing through the nostrils
Thick, mucousy drainage down the throat or from the nose
Reduction in the sense of smell and taste
Sinusitis is caused by a variety of different ailments. These ailments include:
Biomechanical malfunctions in the cervical (C1-C7) part of the spine
Respiratory illnesses such as the common cold and flu
Allergic rhinitis (inflammation in the lining of the nose)
Nasal polyps (abnormal growths in the sinuses)
Deviated nasal septum
