Out of sight, out of mind—that’s what your point of view on your sinuses might be when they’re not causing problems. The sinus cavities in the human skull have important jobs to do, such as reducing the weight of the skull, enhancing the sound of the human voice, and filtering and adding moisture to the air we breathe. Yet it’s easy to take your sinuses for granted unless symptoms of sinus disorders appear as an unpleasant reminder of their presence.
Sinuses contribute to difficulty in breathing when inflammation or infection cause swelling within the nose. The blockage or closure of the drainage pathways of the sinuses often leads to chronic sinus infections. If the condition persists, it can have larger ramifications for your life, interfering with sleep, productivity, and leisure activities.
The ear, nose, and throat physicians at The ENT Center are specially trained to diagnose and treat a full range of sinus-related problems. SCHEDULE AN APPOINTMENT at our Lancaster or Ephrata office to get started on the path to sinus wellness and better breathing.
