About The Treatment
Neurent Medical’s proprietary Rhinitis Neurolysis Therapy™ is an in-office treatment option for chronic allergic and non-allergic rhinitis. Using a gentle and flexible hand-held device and local anaesthetic, your ENT physician will access and treat hyperactive parasympathetic nerves inside your nasal passages that cause the core symptoms of congestion and rhinorrhea (runny nose).
- In-office treatment using only a local anaesthetic
- Return to normal activities immediately after procedure
- Chronic rhinitis is inflammation and swelling of tissues inside the nose that results in symptoms such as congestion and rhinorrhea (runny nose), sneezing and nasal itching.
- Chronic rhinitis is known to significantly decrease quality of life. Chronic rhinitis can have an adverse effect on a patient’s sleep quality, mood, and daily activities. It’s also known to decrease productivity at work, school and during sports, leading to millions of lost work and school days per year.
