What is Nasal Obstruction & Congestion?

Nasal obstruction and nasal congestion often go hand-in-hand. These two symptoms cause our patients many issues with breathing through their noses, causing a variety of complications over the long-term. Nasal obstructions can cause nasal congestion, or nasal congestion can be a result of environmental factors such as allergies or pollutants in the air. While nasal obstruction and congestion can be manageable alone, it’s important for our patients to be aware if they are experiencing this congestion with any of the following symptoms:

What Causes Nasal Obstruction & Congestion?

Nasal obstruction and congestion can often occur together, but can also be caused by separate issues. Nasal obstructions can be caused by structural issues in the nose including a deviated septum, swollen turbinates, and benign growths in the nose’s internal tissues. Nasal congestion, on the other hand, is often a result of chronic sinus problems or allergies caused by sensitivity to environmental factors. While nasal obstruction can commonly cause nasal congestion, it is not common that nasal congestion causes nasal obstruction.

What are the Dangers of Nasal Obstruction & Congestion?

While nasal obstruction and congestion within themselves aren’t a dangerous issue, they may lead to additional symptoms that can cause concerns over a period of time. Patients who suffer from nasal congestion and obstruction may find that they tend to breathe through their mouths, which has extensive long-term consequences including decreased lung health and developmental complications in the mouth and nose. Patients with severe nasal congestion may also find that they suffer from chronic headaches that cannot be easily treated.
