Rest Easier With Our Edmond Chiropractor
Have you ever slept in the same room with someone who has sleep apnea? They may not even realize they have it, but you would certainly notice if you ever listened to this person sleeping. The sound is very much as if the sleeping person is holding their breath frequently and then having to gasp for air. This can certainly seem scary. Did you know that our Edmond chiropractor may be able to help with sleep apnea?
This chronic condition has three basic types; mixed, central, and obstructive. The most common type of sleep apnea is the obstructive type due to the throat tissue or tonsils blocking the airway. If a person has sleep apnea and doesn’t know it, there are some other symptoms one can keep an eye out for and our Edmond chiropractor is here to share these signs with you, today.
Here are some of the most common symptoms of sleep apnea besides gasping for air in the middle of the night:
- Insomnia or interrupted sleep
- Reduced libido
- Headaches in the morning
- Fatigue during the day
- Loud snoring
- Sore throat when waking up
- Dry throat when waking up
Of course, there are traditional medical treatments for sleep apnea, but as we stated earlier our Edmond chiropractor can help through spinal adjustments and also via soft tissue massages to help relax your muscles and to promote proper breathing.
This treatment from our Edmond chiropractor is capable of working as adjustments may boost your immune system, get your body back to its proper alignment, and retrain your respiration habits. Like adjustments, massages also help calm the body and relieves stress from the body, but rather than working on bones and joints the pressure is released from the muscles.
If you feel that you might have sleep apnea, please feel free to give our Edmond chiropractor a call at 405-285-7325 to make an appointment.
