Runny noses, stuffiness, and post nasal drips are incredibly annoying. You blow through boxes of tissues, your nostrils get sore, and you try tons of over-the-counter medications, and it seems like there’s no end to them.
Dr. Turner Wright with Wright Sinus Choice has a word for runny noses—chronic rhinitis, which is persistent inflammation of the nose. More than 24 million Americans suffer from this condition!
The cause of chronic rhinitis is yet to be discovered but may be due to out-of-balance nerves sending too many signals to your nose, telling it to drip, run, and swell more than necessary. Other types of rhinitis include:
- Allergic rhinitis is a runny nose caused by seasonal allergies (this is the most common form of a runny nose). When pollen gets trapped in your nose, it causes inflammation, according to Harvard Health.
- Perennial allergic rhinitis occurs in people who have allergies all year round. Allergens include dust mites, mold, and animal dander.
- Non-allergic rhinitis is when your nose runs for no reason.
If you experience a runny nose, nasal congestion, congestion in the morning, post-nasal drip, and clearing of the throat, and you find that nasal sprays, drops, and pills aren’t working, an exclusive Nasal Cryotherapy by ClariFix could act as a permanent solution.
What is ClariFix?
ClariFix is an in office, simple procedure that allows Dr. Wright to get to the root of your runny nose and may provide long-lasting relief. Treatment is done within the office and does not require anesthesia. Most patients return to their normal activities the same day.
How does ClariFix work?
You can expect to spend about an hour in the office (you can even go on your lunch break!) Using the ClariFix device and an endoscope, your doctor will get into the inflamed passages of your nasal lining and freeze those out-of-balance nerves that continuously send signals to your brain. This procedure does not require heavy anesthesia, just topical numbing agents. You may feel some pressure, a cooling sensation, along with some discomfort, but the treatment should not be painful.
About two to six weeks following the treatment, patients can expect to notice a decrease in congestion and running of the nose. Four out of five patients reported long-lasting symptom improvement, according to ClariFix.
Are there side effects?
Patients may notice an increase in congestion along with some pain and discomfort after the procedure, but it is temporary.
