Endonasal: What You Need to Know

May 13, 2024 | General Health

From struggles with facial pain and sinus issues to deviated septums and headaches, the ABC EndoNasal Cranial Correction™ can help with a variety of symptoms and issues. It works by re-aligning the facial and cranial bones, helping you breathe easier and reducing the risk of pain or infection.

So, what should you know about this technique? At Posture & Wellness Chiropractic Clinic, we employ this technique when needed, as part of the ABCTM protocol, to help guide to help guide our patients toward better health. So, here’s what we think you need to know!

What is Endonasal Correction?

Surprisingly, your skull (and face) consists of 22 bones. Inevitably, this means a lot can go wrong in terms of alignment and pain, especially after injury or trauma. Yet, EndoNasal Cranial Correction™ is a gentle chiropractic adjustment that can provide relief in just seconds.

This correction is typically performed with the patient lying down. We then use a small, hand-held instrument to apply gentle pressure through the nasal passages. This aims to reach the sphenoid bone, which is considered pivotal in the technique because of its central location and articulation with other cranial bones. We then make adjustments to the position of the cranial bones. 

The goal is to correct any perceived misalignments or restrictions in movement so we can influence overall health by impacting the nervous system, the flow of cerebrospinal fluid, and the circulatory system within the cranium.

Most patients claim it feels like they have water up their nose, which can be slightly uncomfortable. However, many past patients (and our team!) argue it’s entirely worth it for the positive outcomes. Some may even notice a difference in the alignment or symmetry of their face.
