Considerations and Contraindications for Nasal Release Technique

Considerations and Contraindications for Nasal Release Technique with Cynthia Stein of Conquer Concussion

Nasal release technique is a therapeutic procedure that holds promise in addressing various health issues. However, it is important to exercise caution and consider contraindications to ensure the safety and well-being of patients. In this article, we will explore the contraindications associated with nasal release technique and the precautions that need to be taken.

Bleeding Disorders and Anticoagulant Medications:

Patients who have bleeding disorders or are taking anticoagulant medications should be approached with caution when considering nasal release technique. These individuals may not be suitable candidates for the procedure due to the potential risks associated with their medical condition or medication regimen.

Prior Nasal or Facial Bone Surgery:

Individuals who have undergone previous nasal or facial bone surgery, especially those involving modifications to the turbinates, may not be suitable candidates for nasal release technique. The integrity of the structures in the nasal and facial region can be unpredictable following such surgical interventions, warranting caution and potentially ruling out this procedure.


There have been reported cases where the nasal release technique triggered an asthma attack. While this observation is based on a single private practice experience, it is advisable for clinicians to exercise precaution when considering nasal release technique for patients with a history of asthma. Patients with asthma should be instructed to have their inhalers readily available during the therapy session to manage any potential asthma symptoms.

Extensive Medical History Check:

Prior to performing the nasal release technique, a thorough assessment of the patient’s medical history should be conducted. This step ensures that any contraindications or potential risks are identified. If contraindications are present, the therapist should refrain from performing the nasal release technique to avoid any adverse effects on the patient’s health.

Nasal release technique holds promise as a therapeutic intervention for various conditions. However, caution must be exercised, and contraindications should be carefully considered before proceeding with this procedure. Patients with bleeding disorders, those taking anticoagulant medications, individuals with a history of nasal or facial bone surgery, and patients with asthma require special attention and consideration. By adhering to these precautions, therapists can ensure the safety and well-being of their patients during nasal release technique sessions.
