Address your sleep apnea through exercise

Exercise can be a valuable treatment for individuals with sleep apnea. Regular physical activity not only aids in weight management but also strengthens the muscles in the throat and upper airway, which can help keep the airways functioning as nature intended. By reducing excess weight and improving muscle tone, exercise can reduce sleep apnea severity. At the San Francisco Center for TMJ and Sleep Apnea, we can advise you on how exercise can improve your condition for a happier, healthier life.

What should I expect from an exercise program for sleep apnea?

Exercise is a valuable component of our comprehensive approach to whole-body health. Under our guidance, you can expect gradual progress in several areas. First, you may notice improvements in your overall fitness and energy levels. Over time, if excess weight contributes to your sleep apnea, you might experience weight loss or weight maintenance, reducing symptoms.

What is an exercise for sleep apnea?

A custom exercise program can significantly enhance the quality of life for those whose sleep apnea has developed or is made worse due to excess weight or a sedentary lifestyle. These are some of the goals it could help you achieve:

Weight management

Obesity is a significant risk factor for obstructive sleep apnea (OSA). Exercise, in combination with a balanced diet, can help with weight loss or weight maintenance. 

Muscle tone improvement

Exercise can strengthen the muscles in your throat and upper airway, which could help prevent airway collapse during sleep. 

Improved sleep patterns

Engaging in regular exercise can promote better sleep patterns and more restful sleep. 

Stress reduction

Stress and poor sleep can worsen sleep apnea symptoms. Exercise reduces stress and improves mood, potentially contributing to better sleep quality.

We will tailor an exercise program that suits your fitness level and physical abilities.
