Treating Sleep Problems without Surgery
Is it time to get up already? It feels like you laid down moments ago, only to toss and turn all night with very little real sleep. Now, your alarm is telling you to rise and shine because you have a full sleep-deprived day ahead of you. The thought of facing the day and going to work seems overwhelming.
We’ve all been there. Nothing sets you back before you start quite like a lack of sleep. From negatively affecting your mood to contributing to a severe lack of energy, not getting enough sleep can truly impact your life in a devastating way. It can even interrupt your loved one’s sleep and cause unneeded tension in your relationship.
Unfortunately, quality sleep is a rarity for a large portion of the population, and much of the problem can be attributed to snoring.
What Causes Snoring?
People can suffer from a variety of factors that contribute to snoring, making the answer to this question slightly more complex than you may have hoped. Understanding what type of snoring you or a loved one suffers from is vital to choosing an effective treatment.
One of the most well-known causes of snoring is often referred to as sleep apnea. Obstructive Sleep Apnea involves obstruction of your airway, either partial or complete, and can lead to serious health issues, including reduced levels of oxygen in the blood. In other words, snoring can be a relatively harmless symptom of a more serious condition, sleep apnea.
It is more likely that you snore due to the vibration of your soft palate when breathing during sleep. Sometimes, this soft tissue relaxes over time, making it more prone to the vibration that can cause noise. The resulting noise is, of course, what we call snoring!
How to Treat Snoring?
There are several methods used to treat snoring, some of which are dependent on the particular factors contributing to your snoring, others rooted in more traditional strategies, and still others that are on the cutting edge of medical science and snoring treatment.
One common treatment is the use of a mandibular advancement device that is worn during sleep. This device simply advances the jaw, helping to open the airway to reduce vibration and snoring. Often called snore guards, these devices are effective but can be polarizing.
In some cases, surgery may be recommended to rectify the obstruction of the airway by tissue. While only used in severe cases, surgical options are often extremely painful, and the results are mixed. In other words, surgery is viewed as a last resort by many.
Snoring can also be treated with lifestyle changes, such as eliminating alcohol and tobacco use and losing weight. Sometimes, simply changing your preferred sleeping position can make a difference in your snoring, too.
Modern innovation has led to the use of lasers to reduce snoring, as well. Treatments like Solea Sleep use a unique wavelength to tighten the collagen fibers present in the soft palate, effectively opening the airway and lessening the vibration that causes snoring.
Solea Sleep treatments are generally pain-free, require only a few minutes to perform, and can improve your health in a variety of ways beyond just the reduction of snoring. For example, you will likely sleep better, have more energy during the day, stop waking up with headaches, and more!
