Do You Suffer from Breathing Problems?
There are conditions that cause severe breathing problems which often go hand-in-hand. If you already suffer from asthma or allergies, there is a very good chance you will also experience bouts of sinusitis. When one or more conditions strike at the same time, it can result in chronic symptoms with little or no reprieve for the sufferer. In some cases, breathing difficulties may become so serious that there is a potential risk of life-threatening health complications developing.
Breathing problems also have a detrimental effect on quality of life. Sufferers are restricted in what they can do, which impacts sporting activities for kids and career opportunities for adults. Exploring treatment options that address both the causes and symptoms of breathing problems is the only way to find lasting and effective relief. It is also often the case that a single treatment will effectively combat a number of different health conditions.
If your breathing difficulties stem from asthma, resulting in chronic bouts of sinusitis, opening your sinuses can help improve the symptoms of both conditions. There is also the added benefit of reducing infections that could spread and cause further health complications for patients.
Balloon Sinuplasty for Improved Breathing
Chronic nasal problems are often caused by inflammation of the sinuses. Problems can manifest in a number of ways, including difficulty breathing due to congestion or the discharge of mucus. A balloon sinuplasty will open up the sinuses and improve breathing. The procedure is also proven to reduce the recurrence of sinus infections and associated symptoms such as headache or swelling of the facial features.
Your quality of life will greatly improve after a balloon sinuplasty from Greg Levitin M.D. When you are able to breathe without obstruction, there are also numerous health benefits. Most people take going for a walk or playing sports for granted. However, for those who suffer from breathing difficulties, these activities are all but impossible. A simple, non-invasive procedure like a balloon sinuplasty, makes all the difference, and it takes a relatively short time to recover. Many patients find they are able to go back to school or work within two days of visiting Dr. Levitin.
