What Is the Nasal Specific Technique?
The Nasal Specific Technique or NST is a treatment that adjusts and realigns the bones in the skull, face, and sinus cavities. These bones and joints should move simultaneously as we move our head and neck but, sometimes, they can become stuck and impair the normal function of nervous tissue, blood vessels, and lymphatic drainage.
After this procedure, the bones and joints will begin to work normally again and the patient will experience improved fluid drainage from their sinuses and increased blood flow to the brain. There has been much success in treating both chronic sinus infections and improving cognitive function in patients.
How Does the Nasal Specific Technique Work?
While performing NST, the medical professional will insert a small finger sleeve into the nasal passages of the patient. The sleeve is then briefly inflated and deflated four times in each nasal cavity. As a result, the bones in the skull and sinuses are expanded which restores normal movement to the area.
The entire process takes less than half an hour and many patients experience immediate relief. There may be some discomfort during the NST procedure, but it is relieved as soon as the sleeve is removed.
Benefits of the Nasal Specific Technique
The Nasal Specific Technique is a relatively pain-free treatment option and has been extremely successful in treating patients who suffer from chronic sinus infections. There have also been case studies that show that NST dramatically improved the development of babies with Down’s syndrome.
This treatment comes with little to no side effects and can be very effective for patients who suffer from snoring, sinus infections, congestion, migraines, impaired cognitive function, and more. NST may even reduce the need for use of prescription medication and future surgeries.
