When you suffer from sinus congestion, symptoms can come and go like the seasons. Some bouts may cause more suffering than others but one thing is sure – there are several potential underlying causes at play. Determining what is sparking your flareups is therefore the first step toward finding the right combination of treatments.
People who frequently suffer from sinus infections and congestion should seek a professional diagnosis. Without determining the underlying cause or causes, finding effective treatment and relief is almost impossible. Some medicines may help, but there are no guarantees that you will find the right remedy without a specialist assessment.
Common Causes of Sinus Congestion
A weakened immune system, chronic sinusitis and allergies rank among the most common causes of sinus congestion. You may have also picked up a serious infection that, although not resolved, has damaged the lining in the sinuses.
When periods of sinus congestion persist or recur throughout a calendar year, earlier intervention is recommended. The longer you avoid seeking a diagnosis, the higher the likelihood that your sinus lining will suffer further damage.
Combination Treatments for Sinus Congestion
Some of the treatments for sinus congestion and related issues include balloon sinuplasty, Clarifix for chronic rhinitis, turbinate reduction surgery and Vivaer nasal airway remodeling. At New York Sinusitis Treatment, we can combine treatment options in certain cases to offer more effective relief.
