Sleep Apnea Treatment
Sleep apnea is a serious condition that can cause much more damage than a bad night's sleep. Patients who suffer from sleep apnea stop breathing multiple times during the night, causing them to wake up and disrupt their sleep cycle. Additionally, and of greater concern, this can stop the flow of oxygen to all of the body's systems. If left untreated, patients can develop chronic disease issues caused by sleep deprivation.
Because chiropractic care operates from a holistic approach, Dr. Askinasi will work closely with you to determine the root of your sleep apnea. While traditional medicines often overlook the cause of this condition and simply treat the symptoms, our approach is much more comprehensive. In addition to ensuring that your spine and neck are in proper alignment, we will provide comprehensive holistic care and work closely with physicians that you have seen for this condition. We are adept at the team approach for your health.
