Endonasal Balloon Treatment is also known as a sinuplasty or cranial manipulative therapy. This non-surgical treatment performed by our doctors uses a small balloon that is placed in the nasal turbinates passages and inflated.
Nasal Release Technique, or endonasal balloon treatment, is a popular physical technique which gently relocates the skull bones when you want to open up sinus passages. This method of treatment has been used since the 1920's. Since then, medics across the world have been using it to open sinus passages especially for those patients who have difficulty in breathing.
Endonasal Balloon Therapy has been available for over 40 years. It is increasingly popular due to many drugs and surgeries providing unsuccessful. Dr. Schneider and Dr. Bennett continue to use and develop this method of treatment, which opens up the sinus passages in a similar fashion as when surgeons stretch clogged arteries with angioplasty.
In the end, the device will relieve forces, which will go to the skull to release any impactions within the cranial sutures. By adjusting the skull bones, it re-establishes cerebral spinal fluid flow to the spinal column and brain.
Many confusing names are used today when describing this procedure. Some of these names are Endonasal Technique, Bilateral Nasal Specific Technique, Nasal Cranial Release, Neurocranial Release and Functional Cranial Release. All these procedures mean the same thing. However, you can always seek help from medical experts if you have problems understanding these procedures before choosing one. With their help, you will be able to understand the best procedures to try in order to improve your health.
Our body is always in constant search of balance. Whenever a concussion occurs, the force impacts skull bones. When the skull is in improper alignment, other parts of the body will attempt to compensate through changing the way our body moves. This may lead to poor posture, chronic pain, depression and even poor breathing. When the bones are in a good alignment, it allows for optimal flow of blood to the spinal cord and brain thus leading to a neuro-transmitter activity transmission throughout the central nervous system. With the inflated balloon, your sinus passages are able to be opened up thus making it a perfect procedure to try. Before you attempt the procedure, you should make sure that you look for medical experts who have a wealth of experience since the procedure is delicate and needs expertise for proper execution. This will ensure that the treatment you get will always be the best and will lead to improved health through the process.
Nasal Release Technique often consists of balloons inserted into your six nasal passages. A doctor will tie a finger to one blood pressure bulb that will inflate the cot. This bulb is responsible for triggering the release of inflation. This finger cot is lubricated before being placed into your nostril. The patient should breathe out via the nose while the cot is in the passageway of the nasal cavity. The nostril is then lightly compressed against the valve of the pressure bulb to ensure no air escapes during the process. The patient must take a deep breath at the same time holding it. The finger cot is gently inflated, to make its way right through the nasopharynx, while widening it. The finger cot is then inserted into the lower portion of both sides of the nose, i.e. the middle and upper portions. The same procedure should be repeated within the lower portion to give balance after the procedure.
Since only one inflation in passageways is performed on your first visit, the process is not usually painful. When you perform more inflations, you may start to feel pressure in your nose as well as inside the head.Symptoms that Endonasal Balloon Treatment are used to treat:
