Our sinuses are hollow cavities in our skulls that reduce the weight of our heads. In an evolutionary sense this reduced weight allowed us to walk upright, rather than on all fours. These hollow cavities drain into the nose. Anything that clogs the nose—allergies, colds, a deviated septum—will block the proper drainage of the sinuses. This creates an environment for a sinus infection to develop. If this lasts more than 6 weeks, we call it a chronic sinus infection.
The old saying that “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” holds true for sinus treatment. While we can treat acute and chronic sinus infections, our goal is always to prevent them from occurring in the first place. Many of our allergy therapies are effective in preventing sinus infections. If you are looking for comprehensive sinus treatment NJ, give us a call and set up an appointment today.
