Sleep Disorders

A sleep disorder disrupts and disturbs your overall quality of life. It can affect a child, teen, single adult, parent or senior citizen. More than 70 million people in the U.S. have a sleep disorder. Most of those who have one are completely unaware of it. Many of those who are aware of it never choose to seek the help that they need.

Due to advances in the science of Sleep Medicine, help can be found for those who suffer from bad sleep. The International Classification of Sleep Disorders, Second Edition documents 81 official sleep disorders. While some of these are very common, most of them are found in only a small portion of people. Take some time to find out more about these disorders and the treatments that are commonly used to combat them. By doing so, you can help yourself, and others, live a happier and healthier life.
