The deeper stages of sleep are referred to as restorative sleep, and this is the type of sleep that allows for your body to repair itself. Here are just a few things your body does during sleep:
- Builds and repairs cells, tissues and nerves
- Builds muscle and bone
- Repairs damaged muscles and heals wounds
- Produces cytokines and white blood cells to help you recover from illnesses
Sleep apnea disrupts these important processes by interrupting your sleep patterns, causing your body to wake up multiple times in the night to breathe and lessening the amount of restorative sleep you receive. We provide sleep apnea treatment to help your body experience more restorative sleep, and we invite you to contact us today to learn more and schedule an appointment.
