Do you snore so loudly that others complain? Does your snoring keep even you awake sometimes? Do you wish there was something you could do about it?
Good news! There is something you can do. Come see us at REMedies Sleep Solutions. REMedies Sleep Solutions specializes in treating sleep disorders, including serious snoring.
Sleep apnea is one of the leading causes of chronic, heavy snoring. Correcting sleep apnea not only comes with many health benefits, but also reduces heavy snoring. REMedies Sleep Solutions can do just that.
MORE THAN NOISY BREATHING
Those who suffer from sleep apnea breathe fine while awake but don’t breathe fine when sleeping. They have trouble breathing at night because the airway toward the back of the throat actually pinches tight or collapses altogether. During the day, conscious breathing and an upright posture keep airflow normal, but when muscles relax into sleep, the airway does too.
Think of your daytime airway as a firehose with high-pressure, high-volume air flowing through it. Then at night when you lay down that firehose turns into a garden hose, yet the same high volume and pressure of air need to get through that now too-small space. Something has to give, which means the surrounding tissues vibrate and produce the snoring sound.
WHAT CAN I DO ABOUT IT?
The treatments for snoring are similar to treatments for sleep apnea and can include CPAP machine, surgery or oral appliance. Check out Treatment Options for more details.
