What is sleep apnea?
If you leave your chiropractor’s office surprised to hear a diagnosis of sleep apnea, you may wonder what it is. Most people know that someone who suffers from sleep apnea is placed on a CPAP machine while they sleep so they can continue getting air. However, there are other natural alternatives to a CPAP machine like our sleep apnea management program in Washinton, DC.
Suffering from sleep apnea means that your airways are restricted and you are not getting enough oxygen when you sleep. When this happens, you will typically wake up gasping for breath. At our office, you can get an x-ray to determine if you have a vertebral subluxation that is causing pressure on your nerves. This can actually cause you to have an obstruction in your airway and cause problems with your breathing. One of the biggest benefits to chiropractic care for your sleep apnea is that it is non-invasive and you do not have to worry about high doses of medication or being cut open to find the answer.
