Helping Our Community get a Better Night’s Sleep

When you are well rested, emotions are better regulated and muscles are fully recuperated, leaving you better able to handle the normal stresses and complications that occur every day. When you are not well rested, however, life can seem overwhelming. At the Sleep Center at Major Health Partners in Shelbyville, our medical team has the experience to help treat sleep disorders or other problems.

Symptoms of Sleep Deprivation

A good night’s sleep is highly important to a person’s health. Many people, however, suffer from sleep deprivation that is potentially caused by a sleep disorder. Most people with a sleep disorder aren’t aware that they have one. At Major Health Partners’ Sleep Center, we have our patients undergo an overnight sleep study called a polysomnogram. During this time, we can check for different kinds of sleep disorders.

Some indications of a sleep disorder can include:

  • Frequent waking throughout the night
  • Loud snoring
  • Morning headaches
  • Depression and anxiety
  • Forgetfulness
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Cessation of breathing during sleep
  • Excessive perspiration

Whether it’s a surgery or being fitted for a breathing machine, we have helped thousands of patients throughout Shelby, Rush, and Decatur Counties to regain their restful night’s sleep.

If you believe you may be suffering from sleep deprivation caused by a sleep disorder, speak with your doctor about undergoing a sleep study at Major Health Partners.

Treatment for Sleep Disorders

When a person suffers from a sleep disorder, one solution is to help them maintain airflow into their lungs during the night, which can be accomplished using a Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP) machine. These machines keep air flowing into a person’s nostrils to prevent any obstructions from closing off their airway during the night.
