It’s not just a good night’s sleep. The results of your treatment should start to impact every aspect of your day in a noticeable and positive way.
After we develop your personalized treatment, we don’t just go away. We stay connected, track your progress, and schedule a follow-up consultation between six and twelve months. In the meantime, we are here to help support your journey, so we’re available if your plan needs to be adjusted.
Treatment options vary depending on the sleep issue, but here are some of the treatments we recommend in our practice and their outcomes.
Continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy is a common treatment for obstructive sleep apnea. A CPAP machine uses a hose and mask to deliver constant and steady air pressure in your throat, so your airway doesn’t collapse while you sleep.
Within days or weeks, you’ll feel more energized and awake in the day. You’ll be less likely to suffer Sleep Apnea symptoms, such as depression, irritability or brain fog.
CBT-I explores the connection between our thoughts and actions, and how we sleep. During treatment, a trained therapist helps to identify and correct how our thoughts, feelings and behaviours contribute to symptoms of insomnia.
Within 6-8 weeks, you’ll be able to fall asleep and stay asleep. You can expect to feel significantly better, feeling less stress and anxiety. As sleep hygiene improves, you might also notice your eating habits and general quality of life improve.
Positional therapy, nasal dilators and anti-snoring mouth appliances are different approaches to eliminating snoring. They’re designed to keep your air passages wide open to lessen congestion, deviated septums and simple snoring.
Because these methods are shown to improve sleep quality and reduce basic snoring, you can expect to feel more rested in the morning and, if you sleep beside someone, you’ll likely awaken to a happier, less frustrated partner.
Sleep can improve with simple changes to our routines. It’s why we incorporate them into our treatments. Whether it’s eating better, exercising, putting the phone down or cutting caffeine, making different choices can have a big impact.
When you take care of your sleep, you can expect to see other benefits, besides feeling more rested. Consistent sleep helps regulate our moods, blood sugar, weight, focus and immune systems.
