A nasal airway obstruction is any blockage in the nasal cavity. Most people suffering from this condition experience nasal congestion (stuffiness) as a result, but it can present far greater problems, including difficulty breathing, difficulty sleeping, loud snoring, and fatigue. Chronic stuffiness or trouble breathing could be a sign that your nasal airway is obstructed. At ENTFPSS, our specialists diagnose and treat conditions like this one every day, and we can help you find relief from your symptoms.
What Causes Nasal Airway Obstruction?
There are three internal structures that make up the nasal valve inside the nose are the septum, the lateral wall and the turbinates. Any one of these structures could enlarge or swell, the passage through which air moves could get smaller, reducing airflow and making it more difficult to breathe.
Relief from Nasal Airway Obstruction
Temporary relief from nasal airway obstruction is available in the form of medication and breathing strips. Invasive surgery is also an option as a more permanent solution. There is a third option, however, that provides lasting relief without surgery or recovery time. Contact us to see if you would be a good candidate for Vivaer Nasal Airway Remodeling.
