Sinusitis Article Image

Many adults deal with the chronic issue of nonallergic rhinitis. Similar to the common cold and seasonal allergies, the symptoms can include sneezing, coughing, runny nose, post nasal drip and stuffy nose. These can be frustrating when they are temporary but when they are chronic, they can have a big impact on your day-to-day life.

Diagnosing nonallergic rhinitis typically means ruling out allergies and any sinus issues such as deviated septum or nasal polyps.

Symptoms can be triggered by simple environmental factors like smoke, dust or fumes. Patients with mild cases can often control their symptoms by limiting triggers or taking over-the-counter medications. However, for chronic suffering ClariFix cryotherapy now offers lasting relief. This device targets overactive nerves - the root of the issue. By applying precise, controlled freezing the nerve signals are disrupted and no longer instruct the nose to drip, run and swell.

This minimally invasive treatment is safe and efficient with 3 out of 4 patients reporting improvement that lasts at least 6 months, with a large proportion showing sustained improved as a long as two years. It is typically done in the clinic setting with local anesthesia and patients can return to regular activities the next day.
