Getting a good night's sleep should be the most natural thing in the world. Normal sleep helps to restore our physical and mental energy. However, nearly a quarter of the population in the U.S., and as many as half of all individuals over age 65, suffer from sleep disorders to some degree.
We offer comprehensive sleep evaluations with state-of-the-art equipment, a specially-trained staff and personalized attention in a quiet, home-like atmosphere. For more information, call 703-369-8268 or learn more now »
Sleep Health treats conditions such as:
Sleep Apnea: people with sleep apnea syndrome may stop breathing many times during sleep. These episodes often last from 10 to 90 seconds and may occur several hundred times a night.
Narcolepsy: narcolepsy attacks are defined as an irresistible desire to fall asleep regardless of the time or place. Individuals with significant or severe sleep apnea may have symptoms compatible with this disorder.
Insomnia: the inability to fall asleep or stay asleep is a result of insomnia, which may be caused by heartburn, poor sleep habits, alcohol, medications, stress or sleep apnea.
Nocturnal Myoclonus: jerking leg movements during sleep are often recorded at the end of apnea spells but may represent an independent clinical problem. Periodic nocturnal myoclonus is a disorder that causes frequent leg jerks or movements during sleep.
