Making sure you get enough quality sleep is an important component to your overall health and well-being. It is necessary for healing the body and having enough energy to be productive in your everyday life. Unfortunately for many Americans, sleep disorders can make it difficult, or even impossible, to sleep well, which can negatively impact their function at work, school, and in other aspects of their life.
More than 40 million Americans annually report suffering from chronic sleep disorders and approximately 20 million more report occasional difficulty sleeping. Not getting enough sleep can result not only in feeling sluggish or lethargic, but can also result in accidents and even costly litigation because of sleep-related vehicular incidents. Not getting enough sleep every now and then is typically not a problem, but losing sleep over a prolonged period of time can make it difficult for you to function safely, so it is very important to seek treatment for chronic sleep issues.
At Allergy & Asthma Sleep Center of Excellence, our entire team is dedicated to providing our patients with effective support and treatment for a wide range of sleep disorders, so they can get the rest they need to live a happy and healthy life. Sleep disorders can be broken into two primary categories: dyssomnias and parasomnias. Dyssomnias are problems falling asleep and staying asleep or disorders marked by excessive sleepiness, while parasomnias are abnormalities that occur during sleep. Some of the most common dyssomnias include narcolepsy, insomnia, sleep apnea, restless leg syndrome and periodic limb movement disorder, as well as delayed sleep phase syndrome (where a person stays up very late and sleeps all morning) and advanced sleep phase syndrome (when a person goes to bed between 6-9pm and wakes before sunrise). Parasomnias can include sleepwalking, night terrors, rhythmic movement disorder, REM behavior disorder, bruxism (grinding of teeth), and hypersomnia (a collection of disorders in which a person sleeps too much).
Treatment for these sleep disorders varies greatly depending on the type and severity of the disorder, as well as the individual patient. Many treatment therapies will include medication to either control behavior during a patient’s sleep cycle or to induce sleep in those who have difficult falling asleep. CPAP machines and other breathing aids are common for those suffering from snoring and sleep apnea. Even lifestyle recommendations including changes to exercise and diet can have a profound impact on someone suffering from a sleep disorder.
For some patients, neurofeedback therapy can offer effective treatment. Neurofeedback is helpful because of the brain function aspect of its methodology. Because brain function and brainwave activity can have a vast impact on normal sleep function, many patients who undergo neurofeedback therapy for seemingly unrelated conditions have often reported an improvement in their sleep as a result.
If you or a loved one is missing out on the vital benefits of sleep, call Allergy & Asthma Sleep Center of Excellence today to schedule an appointment with a member of our experienced team. We are dedicated to providing each patient who comes to us for treatment with highly individualized care that works to address their needs.

We work hard to provide customized care that ensures each of our patients gets the best night sleep they can, so they can wake every day feeling refreshed and ready to tackle their to-do list.
