Sleep Apnea Treatment PG County MD
Almost half of American adults who suffer from chronic snoring may have the sleep disorder sleep apnea. This condition occurs when the person’s throat is either partially or completely blocked while they sleep, blocking off the ability to breathe for several seconds, which causes them to make snoring sounds as they struggle to catch their breath. This cycle continues throughout the night, leaving the person to feel fatigued or exhausted when they wake in the morning. The most common type is obstructive sleep apnea and happens when the soft tissues of the throat actually collapse and block the airway during sleep. If you are suffering from chronic snoring or have been diagnosed with sleep apnea, call Pain Arthritis Relief Center to find about our sleep apnea treatment in PG County, Maryland.
Do You Have Sleep Apnea?
There are certain signs that could indicate a person has sleep apnea and could benefit from PG County MD sleep apnea treatment:
- Breathing while asleep is impeded
- Snoring loudly, sometimes even waking themselves up
- Waking up because they are not able to breathe
Loud snoring is one of the most common signs of sleep apnea. Blockage of the airways by the soft tissues or the person’s tongue results in difficulty breathing, which causes the snoring. Sleep apnea snoring is usually loud enough to wake up other family members in the home, which ends up affecting their ability to get a good night’s sleep, as well.
Consulting with a chiropractor to discuss sleep apnea treatment in PG County MD could be just the key to a good night’s sleep for the entire family! Some of the different treatment options the chiropractors at our clinic use for patients who suffer from sleep apnea include chiropractic adjustments, massage therapy, breathing exercises, and nutritional guidance.
Chiropractic adjustments help realign the vertebrae which can help with proper muscle oxygenation and breathing. Massage therapy on the soft tissues in the back and neck can help relax tight muscles which can help the patient sleep better.
Patients who come to us for PC County MD sleep apnea treatment can also include breathing exercises that can strengthen lungs and muscles around the lungs, as well as eating healthy and losing weight if they are overweight. If a patient is obese, fat develops in their neck and this fat can also press against the airway, making it difficult to breathe.
Sleep apnea treatments PC County MD patients recommend usually take several appointments before the patient begins to see a difference in their quality of sleep and an increase in their energy level throughout the day.
