Sleep disorders can prevent some people from enjoying a good night’s sleep.

Some Sleep disorders are serious enough to interfere with normal physical, mental and emotional performance.

Sleep disorders include a range of issues from bruxism (teeth grinding) to insomnia, jet lag, narcolepsy, sleep apnoea, snoring, restless legs syndrome and sleepwalking.

Lifestyle modifications can help alleviate mild symptoms if they are causing an unnecessary disturbance to your work and social life.

Talk to your family doctor first about your sleep disorder. Severe sleep disorders should be investigated and treated at a Sleep Study Centre.
