Do you suffer from sinus infections on a regular basis? Many people with sinus problems spend years struggling with chronic pain, congestion, infection, and drainage. Problems also often include a decrease in smell and taste, as well as increased cough, hoarseness, bronchitis, and asthma. Sleep problems are also common due to obstructions that result in chronic fatigue. Experts estimate that a loss of productivity due to sinus-related disorders costs businesses in the multi-billion dollar range, and many people suffering from sinus disease do not end up getting the treatment they need until the disorder becomes more chronic in nature. Chronic sinusitis is often a persistent and progressive problem that responds poorly to many therapies.However, there are effective treatments available for patients with sinus problems. Here is a closer look at some of the most effective ways to stop the cycle of sinus infections:

Stopping the Cycle of Sinus Infections

If you are suffering from chronic sinusitis, basic medical intervention may help, including the use of anti-inflammatory sprays, saline irrigation and occasionally antibiotic therapy. Allergy testing and treatment may also be useful in some cases. Ultimately, if there is a persistence of problems despite reasonable treatment, then a detailed examination is indicated and most commonly includes imaging studies utilizing a CT scan. Relief of areas of obstruction with very gentle endoscopic techniques that involve no bruising, swelling, or packing can be dramatically successful in achieving a permanent cure.Symptoms of sinusitis, such as facial pain, nasal airway obstruction, sinus headaches, chronic coughing, and fatigue should not be ignored. We can help to break the cycle of sinus infections with effective options. You can finally stop suffering from drainage, nasal congestion, and chronic pain so you can live your life to the fullest!Schedule your consultation with Northwest Face & Body today to learn about the most effective treatment options available for sinus problems.
