What kinds of sleep apnea are there?

When discussing sleep apnea, one of the first things you should know is that there are three common forms of sleep apnea. 

1.Central Sleep Apnea. Your brain needs to send messages to the rest of your body so that it can function well. When the brain is unable to do this, it may not send out the messages to your muscles about breathing properly. 

 

2.Obstructive Sleep Apnea. This form is a physical blockage that occurs when you have sleep apnea because the muscles in your throat relax too much. 

3.Complex Sleep Apnea. This is a combination of central and obstructive sleep apnea.

What do we look for with sleep apnea?

When you visit our chiropractic office, there are certain things we will look for to determine if you have sleep apnea. Before beginning your Washington, DC sleep apnea treatment, we will want to observe some of the following symptoms:

  • You have problems staying asleep
  • You gasp for air while you sleep
  • You snore loudly
  • A partner or roommate confirms that you stop breathing for certain periods while you sleep
  • You are noticeably irritable

These are just some of the common symptoms of sleep apnea but you may be showing other signs. When you come into the office, we will take a thorough examination and ask you about your medical history before we begin devising a treatment program specific to your sleep apnea needs.
