We understand feeling resistant to treatment for an issue you don’t really know much about, which is why we strongly suggest you learn more by coming in to see us.

Actually, You Need A Lot!
Did you know that all adults need about seven to nine hours of sleep every night? We know, you probably heard a rumor or read a story somewhere that said you really only need three hours. Or, you may have decided that you’re one of a very small percentage of people who can operate on a tiny amount of sleep. Generally speaking, this isn’t true. Your body and brain need rest every single night in order for your immune system to remain in good shape, for you to be able to function and concentrate, for you to remain healthy, to protect your metabolism, and a lot of other factors! So, strictly speaking in terms of sleep, you need more than you’re getting with sleep apnea (which is very little, interrupted sleep), which sleep apnea treatment can provide!
Sleep Apnea Causes More Than Missed Sleep!
Okay, now that we’ve got the sleep portion covered, let’s review the fact that you need sleep apnea treatment for more than simply protecting your ability to sleep and all that comes with good sleep. Remember, sleep apnea is also causing you to stop breathing. When you deal with this problem (which is taking place over and over, throughout the night), you’re robbing your body and brain of oxygen. You already know how important it is to continue breathing but we’ll remind you: This problem can encourage serious issues with your health, from damage to your liver to heart health problems. Let sleep apnea treatment help.
