About Nasal Obstructions and Top Treatments

Find Innovative Treatments for Bothersome Nasal Obstruction

Nasal obstructions can result in chronic breathing impairments. Whereas it is not unusual for people to experience occasional nasal blockage due to illness and allergies, it isn’t normal for individuals to experience frequent or severe nasal blockage for a prolonged period of time. Nasal problems can cause breathing difficulties and make everyday activities unenjoyable. The good news is that you can experience a higher quality of living after working with the team of surgical experts at miVIP.

Many people might be surprised to learn that chronic nasal congestion is one of the most common health problems people experience worldwide. In fact, recent estimates suggest that about half of the world’s population currently suffers from or has suffered from breathing difficulties due to nasal obstruction. The prevalence of nasal obstruction due to seasonal allergic rhinitis (allergies) or more serious conditions such as enlarged adenoids has encouraged a growing body of medical research. Work with expert ENTs at miVIP to successfully address chronic nasal blockage with individualized treatment plans that range from behavioral interventions to adenoid removal.

Various Causes of Nasal Obstruction

The causes of nasal obstructions vary significantly between individuals. Some common causes include:

  • Viral or bacterial infections
  • Allergic rhinitis, also known as hay fever
  • Side-effects from medications
  • Overuse of nasal sprays
  • Enlarged adenoids
  • Congenital defects
  • Deviated septum, nasal bone fracture, or other issues with the structure and symmetry of the nose

Common Symptoms

There are numerous symptoms associated nasal blockage. A few of the most common symptoms due to nasal obstruction are:

  • Difficulty breathing
  • Noisy breathing
  • Excessive snoring
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Sleep apnea
  • Fatigue
  • Pain around the sinuses and nasal passages

Many patients that experience sleep deprivation due to poor quality of sleep or difficulty sleeping can also experience difficulty when completing normal daily activities, such as working and sustaining a healthy social life.

Best Treatment Methods

The best treatment methods for nasal obstructions are highly dependent on the underlying cause of the obstruction. Patients that experience substantial or chronic difficulty breathing due to the obstruction can often benefit most from surgical interventions including:

  • Adenoid removal – Enlarged adenoids can cause breathing difficulties, and adenoid removal can be highly beneficial for some patients.
  • Surgical treatment of deviated septum – The septum is moved in this minimally invasive surgery to increase symmetry in the nose.
  • Nasal surgery for fractures – Surgical interventions can be used to correct deformities and excess bone and tissue that create or contribute to the nasal obstruction.
