Why a sleep center?
Significant sleep disorders affect about 15% of the population. Until recently, these problems were either considered psychological or were ignored. Research on sleep has provided important information regarding normal and abnormal sleep, making it possible to develop an objective and systematic approach to diagnosis and treatment of sleep- wake disorders. At Emerald Sleep Disorders Center we apply the latest information to the clinical treatment of patients affected by sleep.
Obstructive Sleep Apnea
Are you experiencing symptoms of obstructive sleep apnea, like loud snoring or sleep disruptions?
Do you have a difficult time falling asleep and staying asleep?
Are you having a hard time staying awake during the day?
Restless Leg Syndrome
Restless Leg Syndrome is characterized by unpleasant feelings in the legs, causing the intense sensation to move your legs.
Circadian Rhythm Disorders
These sleep timing problems are called Circadian Rhythym Sleep Disorders because 'circadian' describes the body's daily sleep/wake hormone regulation.
Pediatric Sleep Disorders
It is believed that about 30% of children suffer from a sleep disorder at some point during childhood.
Do you or your child suffer from sleepwalking, sleep talking, or other confusing sleep behavior?
