Nasal obstruction can affect quality of life as well as exercise tolerance. In some cases, it may contribute to obstructive sleep apnea. The septum is the midline structure that separates the right and left sides of the nasal cavity. Most people do not have a completely straight septum, but some septums are more “crooked” than others. A high degree of deviation, can cause an obstruction on one or both sides of the nose. Some medicines and surgery can be used to correct this deviation, to improve the breathing through the nose.
