What Is Sleep Apnea?
Sleep apnea is a common condition in which your breathing stops and restarts many times while you sleep. This can prevent your body from getting enough oxygen and take a drastic toll on your health. In other words, without proper sleep, your body is like a car with no brakes and a constant accelerator. Eventually, it breaks down!
Sleep Apnea can be broken down into two categories:
Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA): OSA is the most common type of sleep apnea that people suffer from. This occurs when your upper airway becomes blocked numerous times while you sleep. As a result, airflow is either reduced or completely stopped. There are numerous factors that could narrow your airway such as obesity, large tonsils, changes in your hormone levels, and more.
Central Sleep Apnea: This type of sleep apnea occurs in those who have medical conditions, whereby the brain lacks proper communication with the muscles, and does not send the signals needed to breathe. Health conditions that affect how your brain controls your airway and chest muscles can cause central sleep apnea.
Sleep apnea does more than just disrupt a good night’s sleep; it can have a dramatic impact on your ability to function as well as your overall health. The human body needs continuous sleep for at least 7 to 8 hours. It is during this continuous sleep that the brain and nervous system go through the “healing” stages, by helping to heal the organs and tissues. At Today’s Headache Institute, we’ll perform a proper analysis, diagnosing the root cause of your sleep apnea, and providing you with the treatment you need to resolve your specific condition.
