What Is a Deviated Septum?
Do you find it hard to breathe through your nose? You may have some sort of obstruction in your nasal pathway that makes it hard for air to smoothly pass through.
There are several different nasal issues that can make it difficult to breathe properly. One of the most common issues is a deviated septum. Nasal trauma that causes the septum to become misaligned is one potential issue. A deviated septum can also be present at birth due to developmental issues. A deviated septum can become worse over time due to changes in the nasal structures as a result of aging.
Fortunately, there are ways to correct a deviated septum. Septoplasty is a surgical procedure that focuses on adjusting and correcting the septum to allow air to easily pass through the nasal pathways.
