About Sinus Problems and Treatments

Stop Suffering From Chronic Sinus Symptoms Today

Sinus problems can interfere with the quality of people’s daily lives. Sinus maladies can present a variety of uncomfortable or debilitating symptoms. Chronic sinus infections, obstruction of the sinuses, and other problems can cause severe and prolonged pain. Not all sinus issue suffers can find relief from simple or temporary treatments.

Chronis sinus pain and other symptoms can lead to other issues if left untreated or if treated inadequately. The highly regarded ENTs at miVIP can help diagnose the underlying cause of sinus problems as well as provide optimal treatment options for individuals with different concerns, such as sinus image-guided surgery.

Common Causes of Sinus Pain and Pressure

Sinus pain and pressure is often caused by allergic rhinitis (allergies) or illness. However, some people are born with the propensity to develop more serious or chronic sinus problems. There are numerous reasons individuals suffer from chronic sinus issues:

  • Inheritance of narrow sinuses from biological parents.
  • Deviated septum due to a genetic trait or facial trauma. (An estimated 70%-80% of Americans have a deviated septum.)
  • An additional sinus which can interfere with how the sinuses drain. (About 10% of the population suffers from this condition).
  • Environmental factors can also contribute to more sensitive sinuses.

Best Sinus Pain Treatments

Sinus pain can range in severity and frequency between individual patients. Initially, most patients try to treat sinus problems with home remedies and over-the-counter medications. Surgical interventions can offer more permanent and effective solutions for patients that suffer from chronic sinus issues. Two minimally-invasive surgical interventions that have successfully treated chronic sinus issues are listed below:

  • Sinus image-guided surgery – CT and MRI scans are used to create a 3D map of the sinus cavity before surgery. The surgeon will use the 3D imagery to perform sinus surgery with improved accuracy; and patient recovery time can be decreased.
  • Ethmoidectomy – This procedure is used to remove infected tissue around the ethmoid sinuses, which are located between the eyes and bridge of the nose. It improves drainage and reduces the chances of further infections.

Good News for Chronic Sinus Pain Sufferers

The overall prognosis for people that suffer from chronic sinus issues is positive. New, minimally-invasive surgical techniques including sinus image-guided surgery can improve symptoms as well as decrease the frequency and severity of future problems.
