Sleep Better, Feel Better
Good health is usually associated with our waking hours. How we feel and act during physical activities and conscious functions says a lot about our well-being. But the time spent sleeping is just as crucial to our health. A sleep disorder can affect your overall health, safety and quality of life. Untreated sleep disorders can significantly increase your risk for many health problems and complications including cardiac disorders, arrhythmias, hypertension, diabetes, stroke, mood disorders, and many other health problems.
At Southeastern Med, we understand the importance of sleep. Our sleep medicine services are dedicated to helping those with sleeping problems. Our Sleep Disorders Laboratory is equipped with the latest state-of-the-art technology and medical instruments to perform sleep evaluation studies and accurately diagnose any sleep disorder. The department functions under the supervision of a Sleep Medicine Board certified physician.
Our team is trained to diagnose and treat any sleeping disorders, including:
- Sleep apnea, in which you experience abnormal patterns in breathing while you are asleep. There are several types of sleep apnea.
- Narcolepsy, a condition characterized by extreme sleepiness during the day and falling asleep suddenly during the day.
- Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS), a type of sleep movement disorder. Restless legs syndrome, also called Willis-Ekbom disease, causes an uncomfortable sensation and an urge to move the legs while you try to fall asleep.
- And more
Don’t take sleep for granted. Let the specialists at Southeastern Med help you get the good night’s rest you need while keeping healthy during the day!
