Relieve Your Chronic Nasal Congestion: See an Ear, Nose, and Throat Doctor (ENT)
You have difficulty breathing through your nose; it’s tiring, embarrassing, and you may be frustrated. Medication package labels have health risk warnings about continuous use of decongestive medications and nasal sprays like Afrin. Most people are too embarrassed to wear Breathe Right nasal breathing strips all day. The adhesives on those nasal breathing strips cause skin irritations. Whether you’re dealing with a nasal valve collapse, chronic sinusitis, or another issue, don’t let this issue keep you from living the free-breathing life you deserve.
After trying the Cottle Maneuver at home, an ENT can use the information you now have to aid in diagnosing and treating your issue. Dr. Gilmore may perform an alternate version of the Cottle Maneuver using a long cotton swab that you should not try at home. Major surgery is NOT your only option! Your issue may be resolved with one or two, simple, in-office procedures.
When breathing through your nose is difficult due to chronic nasal congestion, your airways may need to be remodeled. The Latera procedure is used to treat restricted nasal airways caused by anatomy through non-invasive airway remodeling. You can leave nasal sprays and strips behind you and breathe through your nose with ease.Learn More About Nasal Congestion Treatment
