Types of sleep disorders we treat
There are many sleep disorder conditions that can prevent you from getting a full night of sleep. Some of the most types of sleep disorders our Chesterfield County sleep specialists treat include:
- Sleep apnea: This conditions occurs when a person's breathing is briefly interrupted during sleep. If left untreated, it can impact the amount of oxygen received by the brain.
- Insomnia: This sleep disorder involves difficulty falling and/or staying asleep.
- Restless leg syndrome: Also called RLS, this condition involves uncomfortable sensations and an irresistible urge to move the legs.
- Parasomnia: Parasomnia is a blanket term that refers to all abnormal behaviors, emotions, perceptions and disorders that happen during sleep.
During a sleep study, you are continuously monitored by our specialists. Sleep studies evaluate your sleep stages, respiratory airflow, leg movement and other activity as you sleep. The results of your study help us determine the cause of your sleep problems, as well as the most effective treatment plan.
