Osteopathy Treats Sinus Problems and Mouth Breathing – Sinuses are air hollow spaces inside the bones of the skull which permit drainage of mucous via intricate movement of the skull bones. When the movement of these bones becomes restricted, due to birth compression or an accident to the front of the head, a build up of mucous within the sinuses may develop. These children tend to have a persistently blocked-up or runny nose.

Children’s faces begin a phase of rapid development at 5 years of age, therefore Osteopathy is recommended prior to this for best results. Osteopathic treatment to improve the mechanical drainage of the sinuses frequently reduces the severity and persistence of allergies.
