What Are The Types Of Sleeping Disorder

Sleep researchers suggest that a third of all adults don’t get adequate sleep. If left unaddressed, sleeping disorders can lead to more severe conditions like depression, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease.

Also, sleep disorders can affect your personal, professional, and social life. You can tell if you have a sleep disorder if you sleep late, wake early, and aren’t able to sleep for eight hours every day.

Types of Sleeping Disorders

Common types of sleeping disorders include:

Sleep Apnea. This disorder makes you experience a blockage of the airways that makes breathing difficult when you’re asleep. The momentary cessation of breath can force you to be awake, choking, and gasping for breath.

Insomnia. A disorder that makes sleep elude you. If you struggle to fall asleep, stay asleep, or go back to sleep when awakened. then you have either:

  • short-term insomnia
  • or chronic insomnia

While short-term insomnia is caused by a traumatic experience, chronic insomnia is caused by stress and life habits that disrupt sleep.

Narcolepsy. People who suffer from narcolepsy can suddenly fall asleep without warning and at odd hours of the day. It is a neurological sleep disorder that affects your ability to control or regulate your sleeping patterns.

Restless Legs Syndrome. If you suffer from restless legs syndrome, you have probably experienced the urge to always move your legs due to uncontrollable sensations. These sensations can be unpleasant. Worse still, they can interfere with your sleep.

Parasomnias. People with parasomnias make rapid eye movements when sleeping. Parasomnias are also characterized by sleepwalking and other physical activities while sleeping.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. If you find yourself still feeling fatigued even after you have had enough sleep and rest, then you may have chronic fatigue syndrome.

Causes of Sleeping Disorders

The following factors can cause sleeping disorders.

Stress. During stressful times, your body releases stress hormones that put your body in self-defense mode. The stress hormones affect your circadian rhythm and prolong the time it takes you to fall asleep.

Respiratory Problems. The body cannot rest when the respiratory tract is blocked, thereby interfering with your ability to sleep soundly.

Chronic Pain. Unaddressed injuries make it difficult for anyone to fall asleep. Sufferers of back pain, neck pain, arthritis, and headache, struggle to get enough sleep.

Chiropractic Care and Sleep Disorders

A growing body of evidence suggests that chiropractic care can improve the quality of sleep of sufferers of sleep disorders. To address the root cause of your sleep disorder, the upper cervical chiropractor will conduct digital x-ray and thermal imaging tests. A chiropractic adjustment and a variety of care will be administered if any misalignments are diagnosed. This will restore the nervous system function, stimulate blood circulation, and prevent nerve irritation.
