Below is my first YouTube video demonstrating two oropharyngeal exercises that can help with sleep apnea. These two exercises in particular aide in toning the muscles in the oropharynx. Stay tuned for more videos to come, so don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel.
Sleep apnea exercises
If you’re using a device such as a mandibular advancement device or C-PAP machine, for the treatment of sleep apnea; it is not recommended to discontinue treatment unless you’ve taken steps to bring the disorder under control, and you have been cleared by your doctor. Opinions regarding the treatment for sleep apnea may vary amongst medical professionals, and changes are always taking place. Although the exercises provided within this video have demonstrated improvement in the tone of the oropharyngeal muscles; they do not replace a thorough evaluation from a board-certified sleep medicine physician and cannot guarantee results. The exercises in this video should only be used under the guidance and supervision of a licensed healthcare practitioner. The therapist in this video cannot be held responsible for any error, omission, professional disagreement, outdated material, or adverse outcomes that may derive from the exercises or information provided in the video. The therapist in this video advises to consult a licensed healthcare provider prior to the use of these self-help exercises.
