We treat the full spectrum of patients from infants to the elderly:

  • Fibromyalgia
  • Patients with Fibromyalgia experience poor slow-wave-sleep; lack of this slow-wave-sleep is known to increase a person's susceptibility to pain. Also, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and morning Headaches/Migraines can be the result of repetitive sleep disruptions during the night.
  • ADD/ADHD
  • It has recently become clear that there seems to be an association between sleep disturbances and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) or Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD). It is not hard to comprehend that disturbed sleep can lead to symptoms of ADHD or ADD.
  • Sleep Apnea
  • For years people have thought of snoring as nothing more than a simple annoyance during the night, but recent statistics suggest that this seemingly simple noise problem may in fact increase the risk of high blood pressure, stroke, heart attack, and daytime sleepiness.
  • TMJ/TMD
  • In many people TMJ (or TMD) and clenching /grinding of the teeth in sleep is related to breathing problems (surprisingly to some). Learn more about how this is associated with snoring and sleep apnea, and what can be done to treat sleep related grinding and clenching.
