The Science Behind Snoring & How to Fix it

November 4, 2019

Your dog does it, your hamster can do it, and even that hummingbird in your backyard can do it. We’re talking about snoring. And while it is one of the more common animal behaviors, do we know what causes it? Turns out a variety of factors could be causing your, or your sleeping dog’s, snoring. It also turns out you don’t have to go night after night snoring – there is a solution!

 

According to Lynn A. D’Andrea, a sleep specialist at the University of Michigan Medical School, “[Snoring] is the combination of turbulent airflow through the hypotonic airway structures that results in the harsh vibratory noise known as snoring.”

But get this – snoring is not an illness. It is merely a symptom and you may be experiencing snoring because of something else. One of the more common causes of snoring is obstructive sleep apnea (60-70 million Americans experience this), which is a disorder causing gaps or pauses in a person’s breathing during sleep. Obstructive sleep apnea and snoring leads to fatigue, waking up exhausted and overall less quality of sleep. Sound familiar?

If your partner has requested you sleep in the other room nightly, or you find yourself dozing off at work, it might be time to take care of your snoring and sleep apnea.

Thousands of Americans find solutions like the CPAP machine, medication and surgery to be effective, but you don’t need to connect to a machine, take pharmaceutical drugs or go under the knife to remedy your snoring.

At Sleep Rehab, our Board Certified Professionals use non-invasive, non-surgical and non-pharmaceutical solutions and come up with a customized treatment plan for you. Contact us today to find out your options and stop this snoring today!

Will a Sleep Apnea Appliance Work for Me?

August 8, 2018

Woman waking feeling restedNo treatment is right for every patient, but if you’re suffering from sleep apnea, oral appliance therapy can offer significant improvement in the quality and quantity of sleep. Many patients with sleep apnea struggle to adjust to treatment using the more traditional continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy. For these patients and those who don’t achieve adequate improvement in sleep using CPAP alone, an oral appliance may provide effective treatment to help you get a good night’s sleep.

Sleeping with Someone who Snores

snoresIf you had to guess the percentage of couples that sleep separately at night because one person snores, what would you say? Perhaps you’re a romantic, so you’ll guess low at five percent. Or maybe you’re more of a realist, so you think 10 or 15 percent might be accurate. Well, studies indicate that some 25 percent of couples are willing to report that they sleep separately, so researchers believe the actual percentage is likely much higher. Moreover, that snoring can be a sign of a more serious condition called sleep apnea. If you sleep with a snorer (or if you don’t because you’re in another room), then contact Sleep Rehab. Dr. Fedosky and his team treat sleep apnea in Dallas, TX, and the surrounding communities, so everyone can sleep well and together.
