Breathing Problems in Bakersfield
Breathing problems are often a discomfort, and can even develop into a health risk in severe cases. At Bakersfield Sinus Center, we offer treatment for breathing problems to help patients in and around Bakersfield and Porterville, CA, enjoy a higher quality of life.
What Are Breathing Problems?
Breathing problems are a result of any condition that interferes with your ability to breathe normally. Most often, breathing problems are a result of an obstructed airway. Obstructed airways typically develop in the nose or in the throat, making it difficult or even uncomfortable to breathe. More often than not, obstructed airways and breathing problems can also cause snoring or sleep apnea. When this happens, patients are at additional health risks that should be addressed as soon as possible.
How Are Breathing Problems Diagnosed?
Breathing problems are often quite easy to diagnose, because you know when you are experiencing them. If you are experiencing a shortness of breath, wheezing or an accelerated breathing rate, you may be suffering from a condition that is causing breathing problems.
Common breathing problems include sinusitis, asthma, and allergies. More severe breathing problems typically involve natural growths in the airways that are producing a chronic issue. When you visit Bakersfield Sinus Center, we assess your symptoms and perform an examination to determine the source of your breathing problems. Once we determine the primary cause, we can recommend a treatment that will work for you.
How Are Breathing Problems Treated?
The treatment of your breathing problem will depend on your diagnosis. For common problems like allergies or sinusitis, we specialize in a range of simple treatments that can help you minimize your symptoms and alleviate your breathing problems.
If you are experiencing breathing problems due to a blocked or obstructed airway, we may recommend a more unique treatment. For example, if your are experiencing breathing problems due to poor airflow through the nose, we may recommend one of the following procedures:
Can Breathing Problems Be Completely Cured?
At Bakersfield Sinus Center, our goal is to help you achieve an improved quality of life by providing long-term relief from breathing problems. However, the cause of your breathing problems will determine the extent and duration of the results you are able to achieve.
If your breathing problems are caused by allergies, asthma, or anything else that may happen continually over time, it can be difficult to provide permanent relief from symptoms. Instead, we can determine an effective treatment plan that can be implemented repeatedly when symptoms develop. We may also be able to identify triggers of your symptoms to prevent them from happening in the first place.
If your breathing problems are caused by an obstructed airway, our treatments typically eliminate that obstruction so that you can enjoy permanent relief from your symptoms.
