Sleep is increasingly recognized as important to public health, with sleep insufficiency linked to motor vehicle crashes, industrial disasters, and medical and other occupational errors. Unintentionally falling asleep, nodding off while driving, and having difficulty performing daily tasks because of sleepiness all may contribute to these hazardous outcomes. Persons experiencing sleep insufficiency are also more likely to suffer from chronic diseases such as hypertension, diabetes, depression, and obesity, as well as from cancer, increased mortality, and reduced quality of life and productivity. Sleep insufficiency may be caused by broad scale societal factors such as round-the-clock access to technology and work schedules, but sleep disorders such as insomnia or obstructive sleep apnea also play an important role. An estimated 50-70 million US adults have sleep disorders.
The Alabama Sleep Clinic works with patients from throughout Alabama to treat various sleep disorders. The Clinic’s Board certified physicians work with adults and children to diagnose and treat all disorders that interfere with sleep.
The Alabama Sleep Clinic was founded in 1996 and is the state’s largest independent sleep medicine practice. It provides a one stop sleep clinic where patients may see a sleep physician, schedule a sleep study, gain a better understanding of their sleep disorder, receive treatment and establish an ongoing relationship with the Clinic’s staff.
With three convenient locations (Decatur, Huntsville, and Madison) the Alabama Sleep Clinic is ready to help every patient get their sleep.LinksImagesContact
