Sleep Breathing Disorders San Francisco

It’s normal to look forward to a day off after the end of a long week or to be envious of toddlers at nap time, but it’s not normal and certainly not healthy to feel as though it is impossible for you to make it through your day because you’re battling daily fatigue after constant restless nights of sleep. Over 40 million Americans suffer from some kind of sleep disorder, and sleep apnea is one of the most common of those disorders. Sleep apnea is usually the result of a blocked airway, and a person suffering from sleep apnea is likely to jolt awake at night after the body stops breathing.

Other disorders that may plague an unknowing person include:

  • Insomnia – a person may either have trouble falling asleep, or may wake up and find it impossible to go back to sleep
  • Narcolepsy – a person may undergo a sudden and uncontrollable onset of sleep. People with narcolepsy are likely to have vivid dreams because they enter almost immediately into REM sleep
  • Restless Leg Syndrome – a person may feel sudden urges to move his or her legs to alleviate unpleasant feelings, like itching, crawling, tingling, or aching. The constant movement is disruptive to sleep, and the uncomfortable feelings may be strong enough to keep a person awake throughout the night

If left untreated, sleep apnea and other sleep disorders can quickly lead to more serious and life threatening conditions, like depression, obesity, cardiovascular diseases, cancer, or dementia. Believe it or not, sleep is the most important part of your day, and while having sleep is good, having good sleep is great!

Dr. Larson and his team are seriously great people. I've dealt with years of chronic migraines, neck pain, and some other issues pointing to TMD. Rachelle was so sweet and helpful and so willing to answer all of my questions. Dr. Larson did a free consult with me even with knowing I was moving out of state and not able to go through treatment with him. He pointed me in the right direction and referred me to another specialist and I'm just super grateful and hopeful that I am finally on the right path to recovery!

I went to consult with Dr. Larson about my TMJ disorder. He was very attentive, did a full exam and has given me great information about my TMJ disorder and has come up with a comprehensive plan to treat my TMJ pain. His office is great and they have always been available and quickly respond to any questions I have. Dr Larson is very amicable and friendly and competent and passionate about what he does. I highly recommend this practice for anyone who wants to get relieved of their TMJ pain and other related issues such as tinitus. His and his team help you feel comfortable and at ease. Very clean office and the staff are so professional and very nice people. Great customer service. I’m in great hands.

Dr. Larson and his staff are incredible. His attention to detail and truly listening to your symptoms made all the difference in my diagnosis and treatment recommendations. After just one night of wearing the appliance I felt more refreshed and energetic than I had in 20 years. It's amazing how much better my wife sleeps when I wear the appliance also 😉 Their office is clean, modern and the staff makes scheduling an appointment effortless. Thanks for all of the amazing care Dr. Larson!
