Nasal Congestion/Obstruction – Deviated Septum

November 28, 2021


The most common thing is a deviated septum. Your septum is a dividing wall. Think about your nasal cavity or the space inside of your nose as one big space. Your nasal septum divides that into two different sides. So patients with a deviated septum, that nasal septum is not midline. It’s not straight. It might be pushed off to the left. It might be pushed off to the right, causing narrowing on either side of the nose. Sometimes the nasal septum is deviated to both sides and it’s resulting in blockage in both sides of your nose. So that’s like one of the most common things we’ll see.
