Sleep Medicine in Shelbyville
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
- Difficulty concentrating
- Cessation of breathing during sleep
- Excessive perspiration

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.
