If you can’t remember the last time you got a good night’s sleep and are scouring over the internet for help, we’ve got some information we can share with you. Chiropractors can potentially provide some benefits for those who suffer from sleep apnea. Here is how chiropractors can help.

Adjustments of the neck

By visiting a chiropractor, patients with sleep apnea might benefit from adjustments of the neck. This will help add some support for the muscles and soft tissues in the area that impacts your sleep apnea symptoms. 

Additionally, this can help reduce tension and promote better breathing. Sometimes the collapsing of the air tubes could be happening because of a misalignment in the neck, shoulders and skull. 

Resolve other problems

Ultimately, chiropractic care can also resolve other problems that might further complicate sleep apnea. This includes sinus congestion, and lung, thyroid and liver functions, which can support overall health to reduce inflammation. Chiropractic adjustments might also help improve digestive problems and more.

While visiting a chiropractor has a host of benefits, we still recommend visiting us at AZ Sleep & TMJ Solutions in Scottsdale to learn more about how to address your sleep apnea symptoms. From there we can discuss further options.
