The Link Between Snoring and Sinuses

snoring1.jpgSnoring is tied to other health problems, from cardiac issues to sleep apnea. But something that rarely gets mentioned about snoring is its connection to sinus issues. Snoring occurs when the free flow of air through the nose and throat is interrupted, and there are several things that can cause this interruption - from large tonsils and the shape of the head and neck to abnormally relaxed muscles and excessive weight. Sinus related causes can include:

  • Sinusitis
  • Nasal Polyps
  • Nasal Turbinates
  • Deviated Nasal Septum

Very often, treating your sinus issues will also help with snoring, and the Ashford Clinic specializes in extremely effective sinus treatments like Balloon Sinuplasty, along with exceptional patient care.
