Video on How to Perform a Saline Sinus Flush

Given the dearth of video on the internet showing exactly how to perform a saline sinus flush using the NeilMed Sinus Rinse bottle, our practice has gone ahead and made one for educational purposes. It has been posted on our YouTube channel, but can be viewed below as well. Click here to go directly to the YouTube video. This link can also be found on our website here.

Instructions on making your own saltwater using home kitchen supplies can be found here.

There are also devices that perform the same thing:
