Sleep Disorders Q & A

What are sleep disorders?

Sleep disorders are a group of medical conditions that affect the quality, timing, or duration of your sleep. If you have a sleep disorder, it can negatively affect your relationships, career, and health. Instead of spending your nights tossing and turning, it’s vital to identify the underlying cause.

What are some common sleep disorders?

Therapeutic Rehab Specialists providers treat a wide range of sleep disorders, including:

  • Insomnia
  • Sleep apnea
  • Narcolepsy
  • Restless leg syndrome (RLS)
  • Parasomnias
  • Shift work disorder
  • Periodic limb movement disorder

How are sleep disorders evaluated ?

Therapeutic Rehab Specialists can evaluate sleep disorders during an in-office visit.

Your provider reviews your medical records and asks about your symptoms, including when they first started and if they’re worse when you’re feeling stressed. Next, your provider conducts a physical exam and orders lab work, including saliva, possible blood tests and urinalysis.

We can also schedule an overnight sleep study in the comfort of your own come with equipment rental. During an overnight sleep study, your Therapeutic Rehab Specialists provider can review alterations in your heart rate, breathing, and brain activity while you sleep. The data collected during the sleep study helps your provider determine the cause of your symptoms.

How are sleep disorders treated?

Therapeutic Rehab Specialists providers treat sleep disorders with NuCalm® sleep therapy. NuCalm is a noninvasive technology designed to promote health and wellness. It uses a patented light-blocking mask, a mild subsensory electrical current, and neuroacoustic software to relax your body and mind.  

During therapy, you’re also prescribed NuCalm dietary supplements. The supplements block your “fight-or-flight” adrenaline response, calming your mind and body. 

By combining NuCalm therapy with nutritional supplements based upon the findings of your sleep study and diagnostic neurotransmitter testing, it’s possible to get a more restful and rejuvenating night’s sleep.

What are the advantages of NuCalm sleep therapy?

NuCalm sleep therapy offers various advantages, including:

  • Increased productivity
  • Improved focus
  • A better mood
  • Better sleep
  • Enhanced decision-making skills

NuCalm may even reduce your risk of other medical issues. That’s because good sleep helps keep your immune system in optimal condition.
