sleep apnea

Sleep apnea can cause serious health issues at any age. As breathing stops and starts throughout your sleep period, it keeps you from being well-rested and can deprive vital organs, including the brain, from receiving enough oxygen.

Dr. Yousefian is a world-renowned expert in treating sleep apnea in children and adults. Utilizing integrated techniques, he offers a non-surgical treatment that corrects the root causes of apnea. Your sleep will improve, and so will your health and outlook on life!

Millions of Americans suffer from chronic facial and neck pain as well as severe, recurring headaches. In some cases, this pain is due to Temporomandibular Disorder, also known as TMD.

Your temporomandibular joints, or TMJs, connect your lower jawbone to your skull. These joints get a lot of use throughout the day as you speak, chew, swallow, and yawn.
