Inflammation and swelling in your ear cause painful pressure, muffled hearing, and a nagging sense of fullness. Waiting for relief without treatment for the underlying causes can intensify ear pain into a chronic condition and invite severe complications. Get a diagnosis right away to medically manage the condition and stop ear pain before it gets worse.
A clogged or swollen eustachian tube, the small canal running from your ear to behind the nasal cavities in the back of your throat, causes ETD. Allergies, or an illness like a cold, increase mucus production, and the tube can become blocked or inflamed. As a result, you experience an uncomfortable feeling of fullness in your head, muffled hearing, and pain deep within your ear. Left untreated, ETD can worsen into severe complications.

Medically managing ETD offered limited, invasive options until now. By slipping in and dilating a balloon into the passageway, inflamed mucosa in the canal slough away, replaced by healthy tissue. The procedure brings more immediate and lasting relief than temporary fixes like OTC pain medications that minimize, rather than prevent swelling.What to Expect
