Your throat has an important job to do: it carries food to your esophagus and air to your windpipe and larynx. Throat problems are common—everyone has experienced a sore throat. The cause is usually a viral infection, but other causes include allergies, infection with strep bacteria or the upward movement of stomach acids into the esophagus, called gastric reflux. Other problems that may affect the throat include tonsillitis (an infection in the tonsils), pharyngitis (inflammation of the throat) and cancers. Most throat problems are minor and go away on their own. But when you need professional care, you want to go to Boulder Valley Ear, Nose & Throat Associates. For your convenience, there are three locations to serve you, in Boulder, Louisville and Lafayette.
