A wide variety of non-traditional treatments have been used in treatment of sinusitis.

Acupuncture has been used to help open the sinuses allowing the mucus to drain better. I had acupuncture before surgery.

It helped, but I still had to have surgery.

Most patients we have seen have felt that it has helped open their sinuses up, but no studies have confirmed this.

A CT scan (x-ray) done before and after on our several of our patients has not shown any substantial change.
