deviated nasal septum


Nasal septum is the bone and cartilage which divides the cavity of the nose in equal halves. When this nasal septum is crooked, or off center it is known as deviated nasal septum. DNS can cause breathing difficulties with a few other complaints like headaches. Many people have DNS by birth but only the people who have severe displacement suffer from signs and symptoms and require treatment.


Deviated nasal septum is compared to Nasanaha/Nasa Pratinaha contents present in Ayurvedic texts. Nasanaha’s signs and symptoms resemble those of DNS. Nasa means nose and Anaha means obstruction. It is caused due to vitiation of Kapha dosha and Vata dosha causing nasal obstruction.


The signs and symptoms of DNS can vary in different people, however there are certain symptoms which majorly define the ailment.

  • Nasal congestion where one side is more congested than other
  • Difficulty in breathing
  • Pain in face
  • Nosebleeds
  • Postnasal drips
  • Recurrent sinus infection
  • Snoring or loud breathing during sleep
  • Sleep apnea in severe cases


Deviated nasal septum is very common and usually many people are born with it. In other people DNS can be caused due to injury to the nose or nasal cavity. These injuries may occur due to falls, sports, car accidents, during fights or accident getting hit on the nose.


Your doctor will ask about the clinical history which will help in evaluating the signs and symptoms that will indicate the DNS. Further physical examination will be conducted along with the nose. Close examination of the nose is also done with the help of bright light. ENT will confirm the diagnosis.


Usually the people who do not have any signs and symptoms do not need any treatment. Other people who require treatment are recommended for the surgery called septoplasty in a conventional system of medicine.


Treatment in Ayurveda aims at balancing the tridosha. As the cause of the ailment is vitiation of Vata and Kapha dosha, hence the herbal medicines are given to pacify the doshas and restore health.
