Common Sleep Disorders and How We Can Help

How your sleep specialist in Columbia, South Carolina can help you sleep better

Are you having trouble getting to sleep, or staying asleep? Everyone has sleep issues occasionally, but if you find yourself tossing and sleep disordersturning, feeling sleepy during the day, and having problems concentrating, you could have a sleep disorder. The good news is, your sleep specialist can help. Dr. Richard K. Bogan at Bogan Sleep Consultants in Columbia, South Carolina is an expert at diagnosing and treating sleep disorders.

Sleep disorders are a common problem. Some of the most common sleep disorders treated at Bogan Sleep Consultants include:

Chronic or acute insomnia, which means you have difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep; this problem can cause grogginess, lower performance at work, and difficulty concentrating.

Snoring and sleep apnea, which happens when the tissue at the back of your throat relaxes and blocks your airway; these conditions can be treated with a CPAP which ensures a continuous flow of oxygen, or a mandibular advancement appliance, which holds your lower jaw forward, keeping your airway open.

Narcolepsy, which is a type of epilepsy involving periods of suddenly falling asleep; narcolepsy can cause performance issues at work, problems operating a vehicle, and difficulty getting through your daily activities.

The first step in dealing with sleep problems is to modify your environment at home. Your bedroom should be a place of rest, so remove the television, computer, phones, and other screens. Establishing a routine of warm baths, relaxing music, reading, and other restful activities can help you get to sleep.

Dr. Bogan may recommend a sleep study to help determine the sleep disorder you are suffering from. He has state-of-the-art methods and equipment to diagnose and treat your sleep disorder.
