MODENA ALLERGY + ASTHMA IN TORRANCE
Living with chronic sinusitis can be not only miserable but complex. Allergic reactions to environmental allergens such as pollen, dust mites, or animal dander or repeated infections, particularly bacterial or fungal, are common triggers for chronic sinusitis, but pinpointing the cause and best treatment for chronic sinusitis can be challenging. However, there have been recent, ongoing advancements in treatment that offer a broader range of therapies meant to address this condition and help patients find relief.
At Modena Allergy + Asthma in Torrance, Dr. Brian Modena's passion for his role as a board-certified allergist is deeply rooted in personal experience. His dedication to helping patients achieve better health and an enhanced quality of life is partly driven by his own and his family members' struggles with severe asthma. This deep connection fuels his commitment to continuous learning and research, with a specific focus on asthma, allergies, and immune-related chronic health concerns.
Get Relief From Your Symptoms
Chronic sinusitis, or chronic rhinosinusitis (CRS), manifests through persistent symptoms like nasal congestion, facial pain, headaches, and postnasal drip that last for at least three months. These symptoms are a consequence of continuous inflammation in the sinuses and nasal passages, the hollow spaces within the head.
An effective Chronic Sinusitis Treatment in Torrance not only relieves the condition's primary symptoms but can also lead to improvements in related health issues, including asthma, other breathing problems, fatigue, and chronic cough.
Rapid Diagnosis Leads to Fast Relief
Chronic sinusitis is characterized by ongoing inflammation within the sinuses and nasal passages. The source of this inflammation can be from various factors, including infections, allergies, and irritants from the environment. The most common symptoms include nasal stuffiness, difficulty breathing through the nose, and facial pain and pressure. Secondary symptoms can include fatigue, sleep disturbances, and vocal changes.
And which treatment is right for you?
Dr. Brian Modena uses a highly individualized approach for his Torrance Chronic Sinusitis Treatments, recognizing the condition's considerable variability in cause and presentation. The term 'chronic sinusitis' has essentially evolved into a broad, non-specific diagnosis encompassing numerous subgroups, and the initial step in addressing chronic sinusitis involves identifying the specific 'type' of inflammation present, which determines the course of treatment.
One prevalent type of inflammation is known as "Type 2" inflammation, which is responsible for allergic reactions and related conditions like atopic dermatitis, eczema, and asthma. The identification of Type 2 inflammation relies on advanced techniques, including genetic markers, clinical history, inflammatory breathing tests, and laboratory analysis. Innovative therapies, such as monoclonal antibody treatments, are designed to target the causes of chronic sinusitis, such as Type 2 inflammation, directly and effectively.
Dr. Modena offers extensive knowledge of this disease and immunology, complemented by lab testing, imaging, and biomarkers, to categorize and determine the specific inflammatory 'type' affecting each patient, from children to adults, and whether they are a good candidate for specific treatments. He will expertly make personalized treatment recommendations that align with each individual's preferences and care goals.
Dr. Modena's passionate dedication to enhancing the lives of his patients has established him as a leading specialist in Torrance. His expertise and compassionate care have earned him recognition in prestigious publications, including Men's Journal and The CheckUp.
