WHY DO I HAVE A STUFFY NOSE?
NASAL VALVE COLLAPSE
Many times nasal congestion and blockage are caused by narrowed valves where air first enters into the nose. Opening these valves will help you breathe better. This is how VivAer works.
DEVIATED NASAL SEPTUM
Another reason for nasal congestion is a deviated septum. This is when the main bone inside your nose shifts to one side causing nasal blockage. This usually requires surgery at the hospital.
Turbinates, or the air-filters inside your nose, are supposed to filter, warm, and humidify air as you breathe through your nose. Sometimes, they get too big and can cause nasal congestion.
