Sleep Apnea - Columbia, SC
Restful Sleep is Possible
Is Sleep Apnea Treatment Your Solution?
Are you fatigued during the day, do you wake in the morning still feeling tired, or has someone told you that you snore? Sleep apnea can have many symptoms that don’t seem harmful now but over time can have dangerous effects on your health. Characterized by frequent pauses in breathing during sleep, sleep apnea in Columbia, SC often occurs due to an obstruction of breathing. The tongue or soft tissues in the mouth can fall back during sleep and block necessary airflow to the lungs. If this condition continues undiagnosed and untreated, sleep apnea sufferers risk chronically poor sleep and systemic health issues like diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, and even heart disease.
Some immediate changes can also occur after sleep apnea treatment including a change in energy levels, improved mood, restored confidence, and the reduction or even elimination of snoring. If you’ve been experiencing common symptoms of sleep apnea, we encourage you to find out if you have this life-threatening condition and how our treatment can improve your health and your life.
