Easing Sinus Headache

Monday, April 19th, 2010 by American Senior Fitness Association   View This Issue of Experience!

This time of year, those who suffer from sinus headache may be especially affected. The University of Maryland Medical Association (UMMA) recommends consulting with one’s physician regarding the use of medications, saline nasal spray, a humidifier, and ways to control one’s allergies.

In addition, UMMA advises that a conservative form of movement may also offer some relief from sinus-related pain: Try slowly and gently stretching the neck. Always breathe regularly and naturally during stretch activity. Health-fitness professionals may wish to make this information available to clients complaining of the discomfort caused by seasonal pollen spikes.
