What's keeping you up?
It is estimated that more than 50 million adults in the United States experience some kind of sleep disturbance. Until recently, little was known about the mysteries of sleep and sleep disorders. Few diagnostic tests and effective treatments were available. Consequently, many people suffered for years without proper evaluation and care. How much sleep should an adult get? Sleep experts recommend 7-9 hours a night, but most adults in the United States fall slightly short averaging 6.9 hours each night.
The most common sleep disorders include:
- Insomnia: inadequate quality or quantity of sleep
- Snoring: abnormal breathing and sleep disruptions
- Sleep Apnea: serious breathing disruptions
- Restless Leg Syndrome: neurological movement disorder
- Narcolepsy: sudden involuntary, excessive daytime sleepiness
