    Hey All:

    My wife is 4-months pregnant and has been having signs and symptoms of chronic sinusitis for a number of months.

    I am a PA and was hoping to find an adjunct or alternative to antibiotics. What kinds of OMM techniques are available that may help facilitate sinus drainage and resolution of her symptoms??

    Thanks!!

    A while back my wife had a bad cold and she couldn't get rid of the congestion. I thought I'd try to rub her sinuses a little and see if it would help. Lo and behold, after about 5 minutes of circular motion on her maxillaries, it all drained out and she was breathing free. I thought to myself, "what have I discovered!? I'm not even in med school yet and I've already developed my own OMM technique! I'll call it the DaddyD maneuver. :cool: " I was stoked. Then last week I was browsing through "Foundations of Osteopathic Medicine" for the first time and found pages on Sinus Drainage techniques, an all-encompassing guide on manipulating all of the sinus passages. Oh well, :D

    I'm not so much looking to do them myself, just looking for info. on what is out there. I am planning on sending her to an osteopath whom I am friendly with who only does OMM. I am waiting for an email response from him as well.
