The availability of insurance coverage for the Nasal Release Technique varies depending on your insurance company and specific policy terms. We have found that most insurance carriers do not cover this service.

Nasal Release Technique is a special method that helps adjust the bones in your head by working through your nose. This unique approach was created by Dr. J. R. Stober from Portland. It involves a clever tool with a small, soft balloon that’s inserted into your nasal passages. When this balloon is inflated, it gently pushes on the bones inside your nose, especially the sphenoid bone.

This action helps realign the sutures in your skull, where the bones meet. The main goal here is to provide nasal pressure relief by alleviating any pressure that may have built up in your skull through precise suture adjustments.

Different Names for the Same Technique

This technique is known by several names, emphasizing its versatility and widespread recognition. While some refer to it as the Endonasal Technique or Cranial Facial Release, it is also commonly called Nasal Cranial Release. Other terms include Bilateral Nasal Specific Technique, Functional Cranial Release, and Neurocranial ReStructuring Nasal Specific Technique. Despite the variety, all these terms describe the same effective procedure.

Why Timely Treatment Matters

The Nasal Release Technique goes beyond simple adjustments. Untreated concussions can lead to various debilitating symptoms, increased pain, and a longer recovery process. This therapy holds particular significance for athletes, military personnel, and individuals in professions vulnerable to head injuries. Prompt intervention with this can be a game-changer.

Understanding Nasal Release Technique

Our bodies are finely tuned systems always seeking balance. When concussions or birth traumas occur, they can disrupt the alignment of the skull’s bones. This misalignment can result in poor posture, breathing difficulties, pain, and even depression. This Technique realigns these bones, optimizing neurotransmitter activity throughout the Central Nervous System.

What to Expect

The Nasal Release Technique is a gentle and non-invasive procedure. It involves a finger cot attached to a blood pressure bulb, which is carefully inserted into the nasal passages. Lubrication ensures your comfort. As the bulb inflates the cot, you may feel gentle pressure in the nose and inside the head. This process is repeated in different nasal sections for balance and maximum effectiveness.

Indications and Symptoms

Nasal Release Technique has shown promise in addressing a range of conditions, including:

  • Concussions and head injuries
  • Headaches, migraines, and head pressure
  • Fatigue, fibromyalgia, and chronic pain
  • Muscle spasms, neck, and shoulder pain
  • Poor concentration and focus
  • PTSD
  • Sinusitis, sleep apnea, snoring, and breathing disorders
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • TMJ (mouth, head, and jaw pains)
  • Vertigo and balance problems
  • Whiplash Syndrome

Contraindications and Possible Side Effects

As with any medical procedure, there are contraindications and potential side effects to consider. Patients with bleeding disorders or those taking anticoagulant medications should exercise caution. Those with prior nasal or facial bone surgery, particularly involving turbinates, may not be suitable candidates. In rare cases, asthma attacks have been reported, so asthma patients should have inhalers on hand. Our practitioners conduct thorough medical history checks to identify contraindications.

Possible side effects include nosebleeds, minor soreness, tenderness in nasal passages, tingling in maxillary incisors, gum soreness, and occasional headaches. Temporary throat irritation due to increased sinus drainage may occur. Rest assured, our therapists prioritize your comfort and well-being throughout the treatment process.

Dr. Matthew squeezed me in on short notice and took very good care of me. He was very thorough and didn’t just adjust me and let me walk out. Amazing experience here and the receptionist is a sweetheart.

Dr. Wilson and Dr, Alec (PT) are both top-notch, and I’ve trusted my whole family with Dr. Matt Wilson for the last couple of years. My father was a chiropractor for over 40 years, so I knew what I was looking for, and he’s the best we’ve found in the area.  Their approach is to get you feeling better, and not to string things out, costing you more time and money than necessary. While they have all the equipment necessary (x-ray, etc) they don’t push unneeded services or snake oils. Both are caring, competent, and compassionate. The staff is good about finding appointments when you need them, and scheduling you with multiple people in a visit whenever possible. The new building is clean, well-appointed, and comfortable. Wait times are short, too. My husband has also had a therapy-based deep tissue massage from one of the two new massage therapists, and said it really helped!

Dr. Matt and the entire staff have been GREAT! I went in for some issues I was having with my neck and back and Dr. Matt also helped me with some other issues I was having with my calf and shoulders that have made a HUGE improvement in my overall health and comfort.

I highly recommend using Dr. Matt!
