There are numerous reasons your nasal passages can become blocked, and this is almost never fun. We’ve put together this overview of the causes of nasal obstruction and how you can permanently free your air ways.

The Causes of Obstruction

Nasal obstruction can be caused by genetics or injury and can lead to many adverse health conditions:

  • Nosebleeds
  • Headaches
  • Sinus Infections
  • Worsening of Allergies

There are a number of structural flaws that can cause blockage and classify as nasal obstruction:

  • Asymmetrical Nasal Passages
  • Nasal Fracture
  • Enlarged Tissues
  • Enlarged Turbinates
