Sleep apnea is on the rise as one of America’s most dangerous and chronic health problems. Characterized by shallow breaths – or even the stoppage of breathing completely – during sleep, this disorder is not only life-threatening, it can be absolutely terrifying to witness. Imagine if the person sleeping next to you stopped breathing completely, only to be gasping for air the next second? No one, not the sufferer nor those who love them, wants or should have to deal with anything like that. Treatment for the disorder often comes in the form of a CPAP machine, an apparatus worn on the face during sleep that, not surprisingly, doesn’t work for a lot of sufferers, for reasons from discomfort to cost to the inability to sleep at all. Luckily for these folks, chiropractic care for sleep apnea has shown to be quite effective, and Dr. Krieger with Krieger Health Solutions wants to help everyone with this disorder get the better night’s sleep they deserve.
Sleep apnea can come in one of three different types, mixed, central and the most common, obstructive. This type of sleep apnea is usually attributed to inflamed tonsils or throat tissue, and can often go undetected by the afflicted until, believe it or not, someone else lets them know about the problem. Oftentimes, sleep apnea can have symptoms that are incorrectly attributed to other problems, like headaches, decreased libido, loud snoring or restless sleep. Since pretty much everyone has had one, a few or all of these problems at one time or another, it’s easy to see why sleep apnea can slip under the radar, despite the nightly danger to the person with the disorder.
As we mentioned before, the CPAP machine treatment, for some, is as uncomfortable as sleep apnea itself, so more and more are turning to chiropractic care for sleep apnea. Chiropractors can work with spinal adjustment techniques that can open up the airways and realign the systems responsible for breathing. Chiropractic care for sleep apnea can extend even further, with the use of simple breathing exercise that can help the sufferer train their airway to behave more normally. This can also come with recommendations for alterations of the patient’s diet and lifestyle choices, meaning chiropractic care for sleep apnea can often lead to increased health in all areas, not just breathing.
