Sleep apnea is a common condition that has serious repercussions if not treated. In this video, get a peek into how former NBA star Shaquille O’Neal tackled his struggle with sleep apnea.
Like many sufferers, Shaq was unaware that he had sleep apnea until his partner told him about his pattern of snoring and gasping for breath. After completing a sleep study and being diagnosed with moderate sleep apnea, Shaq was fitted with a CPAP mask to get a better night’s rest.
CPAP may have worked for Shaq, but it isn’t right for everyone. At Chicago’s University Associates in Dentistry, we offer an alternative treatment to CPAP therapy that is effective and much more comfortable for many patients.
