The nasal cavity is divided by the nasal septum made of bone and cartilage. When this nasal septum is displaced or crooked it makes breathing difficult. The condition is called deviated nasal septum.
When the deviation becomes severe it blocks the nose from one side resulting in reduced airflow causing difficult breathing and epistaxis.Classification of Deviated Nasal Septum
1. Anterior dislocation:
Septal cartilage is dislocated into one of the nasal chambers.
2. C-shaped deformity:
A septum has deviated to one forming a curve.
3. S-shaped deformity:
Septum makes S-shaped curve either in a vertical or anteroposterior plane.
It is a projection found at the junction of bone and cartilage. It puts pressure on the lateral wall and results in a headache.
Thickening occurs due to overriding of septal fragments.
• Patient acquires deviated septum by birth.
• Direct trauma to the nose.
• Obstruction of one or both nostrils.
• Nosebleeds due to drying up of a surface of the nasal septum.
• If deviated septum comes in contact with outside wall of the nose it results in facial pain.
• Recurring sinus infections.
• Noisy breathing during sleep is common in infants and young children.
Diagnosis is made on the basis of observation and symptoms.
• Medicines give symptomatic relief but do not correct the deviated septum.
• Decongestants help in reducing nasal congestion.
• Nasal steroid sprays reduce inflammation and help in preventing runny nose.
• Septoplasty is a surgical
procedure through which deviated septum is corrected.
Prognosis is good after surgery. Swelling may be present after few months of surgery.
• Sinus infection
• Facial pain and headache
• Obstruction of nose
• Nasal valve collapse
• Nasal polyps
• Inferior turbinate hypertrophy
Every branch of science has its own scope and limitations, so does Homeopathy. Although Homeopathy has a lot of very good remedies for curing & controlling auto-immune disorders, male & female disorders, children and elderly people.
In cases of an emergency situation such as poisoning, serious abdominal complaints (such as acute appendicitis and pancreatitis), fractures, injury, and accidents should be first taken to emergency. However, a patient can consult his homeopathic physician after recovering from his initial phase. Please note Homeopathy plays no role in treating any nutritional disorders.
The scope of Homeopathy is limited; it is the sole responsibility of the physician to decide upon the cure – by looking into the complete nature of the disease, onset, and stage of the disease and then act accordingly.
