Sleep Center

Sleep disorders are at best, only life disrupting, and at worst, life-threatening.

In Michigan alone, thousands of people suffer with a sleep disorder of one form or another. Some have severe snoring with airway obstruction and irregular breathing; some can't get enough sleep, and some can't seem to stop falling asleep. These disorders impair the ability to function normally while awake and can seriously endanger health. They cause many people difficulty at work, at home, and while driving as well as impacting various areas of personal health. Common disorders include trouble falling asleep and staying asleep, difficulties staying awake or adhering to a consistent sleep/wake cycle, sleep walking, nightmares, severe snoring and breathing problems, and other problems that interfere with getting the downtime your body truly needs. Rest assured, sleep disorders can be identified and treated.

If you have sleep apnea, there is a device you can wear when sleeping that assists you in breathing. As a result, a restful night's sleep can occur and symptoms such as falling asleep while driving, nodding off to sleep at work, irritability and lack of energy may disappear.

Severe snoring, periodic limb movements (PLM), restless leg syndrome (RLS), narcolepsy, insomnia, and parasomnias are also conditions that may disrupt your sleep and can be diagnosed at the sleep center through a sleep study.
