Dr. Jay is the best Chiropractor from my experience. I came in because of chronic headaches and back pains and within the first appointment I found relief from both back pain and headaches. Dr. Jay is more than an expert in what he does, he made it a priority to meet my specific needs.Also, he does more than just adjustments. He did a Chinese treatment called Gua Sha and believe me that works! In conclusion, my experience with Dr. Jay was more than just a regular in and out the door see you later visit and that is very important. I have been to other offices around the area that their only concern is to get you in and get you out as quick as they can and never removed the pain completely.He took the time to pinpoint my conditions and all the treatments were specifically aimed and structured to treat those conditions.- Kevin
Tips & Advices
Balloon sinuplasty, or BSP, is a treatment for people with chronic or recurrent sinusitis. It's a safe, noninvasive and highly effective procedure that is becoming more common among ENTs. To perform BSP, the doctor inserts a small, flexible catheter into the sinus passageway. Next, the catheter is expanded, as like a balloon, to open up the cavity and allow built-up mucus to drain. This also widens the sinus cavity and restructures it to discourage further blockage after the procedure is completed. Then, a saline solution is sprayed into the cavity to wash out any remaining pus or mucus. Finally, the balloon is removed. Most patients find they experience fewer sinus-related symptoms and little to no device-related complications following the procedure.
For basic cases, a decongestant or saline nasal wash can treat sinusitis. A doctor can prescribe these or recommend an over-the-counter remedy. If the sinusitis persists for more than three days, further treatment should be sought. In other cases, a doctor may prescribe antibiotics or steroids. These often are taken over the course of 10 days to two weeks. Warm, moist air, such as that created by a vaporizer or a bowl of hot water, may also treat chronic sinusitis.
Pressure in the ears, also called ear barotrauma, is caused by blockage in the Eustachian tube, which spans from the rear of the nasal cavity to the middle of the ear space. Ear barotrauma is most commonly caused by altitude changes, as in plane rides, scuba diving, or hiking or driving through the mountains.
There are many causes of hoarseness. Common causes include:
  • Acute laryngitis
  • Smoking
  • Excessive use or strain on the vocal chords
Tonsils are two soft, small tissue masses located at the back of the throat. They are a part of the lymphatic system, which helps fight infections, though tonsils don't seem to play a large role in this process. Recurrent tonsillitis (inflammation of the tonsils), which can be caused by strep throat or other infections, could mean having them removed.
