The Nasal Specific Technique or NST is a treatment that adjusts and realigns the bones in the skull, face, and sinus cavities. These bones and joints should move simultaneously as we move our head and neck but, sometimes, they can become stuck and impair the normal function of nervous tissue, blood vessels, and lymphatic drainage.
After this procedure, the bones and joints will begin to work normally again and the patient will experience improved fluid drainage from their sinuses and increased blood flow to the brain. There has been much success in treating both chronic sinus infections and improving cognitive function in patients.
How Does the Nasal Specific Technique Work?
While performing NST, the medical professional will insert a small finger sleeve into the nasal passages of the patient. The sleeve is then briefly inflated and deflated four times in each nasal cavity. As a result, the bones in the skull and sinuses are expanded which restores normal movement to the area.
The entire process takes less than half an hour and many patients experience immediate relief. There may be some discomfort during the NST procedure, but it is relieved as soon as the sleeve is removed.
Benefits of the Nasal Specific Technique
The Nasal Specific Technique is a relatively pain-free treatment option and has been extremely successful in treating patients who suffer from chronic sinus infections. There have also been case studies that show that NST dramatically improved the development of babies with Down’s syndrome.
This treatment comes with little to no side effects and can be very effective for patients who suffer from snoring, sinus infections, congestion, migraines, impaired cognitive function, and more. NST may even reduce the need for use of prescription medication and future surgeries.

The Functional Medicine Center of Fort Collins
At the Functional Medicine Center of Fort Collins, we offer the Nasal Specific Technique to help our patients who suffer from chronic sinus infections, migraines, learning problems, sleep apnea, and more. If you have tried prescription medications and Western medical treatments without success, don’t give up, we can help!
We focus on your overall health, rather than just treating one condition. We understand that the body is one whole unit and if you want to achieve optimal health, that all the parts of your body have to be functioning at the highest level. That’s why we’ll never focus on just treating your symptoms, but will work to find out the source of those symptoms so that we can help you achieve a higher quality of life.
Many of our patients come to us after exhausting what they feel like is every option available. That is because much of modern medicine focuses on treating symptoms rather than on whole-body wellness. These patients are sick of the side effects of prescription medications and are afraid that they will never be able to feel like themselves again. When they come to the Functional Medicine Center of Fort Collins, begin treatment, and start following their personal wellness plan, they begin to see results they never thought were possible.
