ENT Specialists providers treat many common throat conditions. Your throat, also known as the pharynx, is located at the back of your mouth and extends down to the top of the respiratory track. It carries food to your esophagus and air to your windpipe and larynx. It is a vital area of the body allowing you to communicate, eat, and breathe. Many experience the nuisance of throat conditions throughout their lifetime. These conditions can be caused by viral or bacterial infections, allergies, tumors, or acid reflux disease.
