The association between chronic headache and obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is well documented. In fact, headache and poor sleep quality are among the most reported symptoms in a clinical practice. Treating your sleep apnea with continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) is the most common and most effective method. The CPAP is typically 100% effective. However, it is not tolerated by 50-80% of the patients for whom it is prescribed. If you cannot tolerate the CPAP, an oral sleep appliance can be used as a stand-alone device or in conjunction with the CPAP to treat your sleep disorder. By improving your sleep quality, you may improve your headache symptoms. At AZTMJ, a Phoenix area sleep apnea & TMJ treatment center, Dr. Stan Farrell focuses on treatment of sleep apnea and offers a CPAP alternative, removing the need for a CPAP machine. Dr. Stan Farrell is a leading provider of sleep apnea diagnosis and treatment and works diligently to reduce the pain caused by headache and poor sleep quality. If you or someone you know might be suffering from obstructive sleep apnea, please schedule your initial consultation today with Dr. Farrell at 480-945-3629 or visit us at www.headpaininstitute.com for more information.
