Are you tired of your daily sore throat, facial pressure and nasal congestion? Have you been dealing with these symptoms for weeks or months? If so, you may be suffering from chronic sinusitis.
What is Sinusitis?
Sinusitis is an inflammation of the nasal passages that prohibits mucus from draining properly. If you have experienced these symptoms for more than 12 weeks, then most Goodyear ENTs would consider it chronic.
Chronic sinusitis affects nearly 37 million people in Arizona and throughout the country per year, making it the single biggest chronic health condition in the country.
Typically, it is caused by a viral infection but can occur because of nasal polyps, a deviated septum or head trauma. While medical solutions, such as medication, work for some, others continue to suffer despite their attempts at treatment.
If you are one of these people, an in-office Balloon Sinuplasty may be right for you. Now is the time to speak to your Goodyear physician.
