What Does Snoring Have to do with My Sinuses?
Are you a snorer? Do you also find yourself frequently struggling with sinus infections? There is more of a connection between these two things than you might think. It is fairly common knowledge at this point that snoring can increase the risk of serious health conditions, like heart disease and stroke, so it should come as no surprise that snoring can also be caused by sinus issues. Snoring occurs when the free flow of air through the nose and throat is interrupted, and there are several things that can cause this interruption – from large tonsils and the shape of the head and neck to abnormally relaxed muscles and excessive weight. Sinus-related causes of snoring can include:
- Nasal Polyps
- Nasal Turbinates
- Deviated Nasal Septum
Having your sinus issues treated can also help with snoring, and we can help you get to the root cause of your snoring and sinus issues. At Southern Indiana ENT, we specialize in extremely effective sinus treatments like Balloon Sinuplasty, and we want to ensure that all of our patients feel heard and cared for. If you or someone you love struggles with snoring, give us a call today (812) 376-3071 to get started on the path to relief!
