Breakthrough Alternative Sleep Apnea Treatment
Learn More about this non-surgical sleep apnea treatment
As an Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA) sufferer, you know the risks of OSA, and if you’re using a CPAP device you also know how uncomfortable, claustrophobic, and irritating they are to wear every night while you’re trying to sleep—not to mention the hassle of lugging it around while traveling.
Options for treatment range from invasive surgeries, to complicated machines, and even some lifestyle changes, however none are 100% effective and without risk.
Fortunately, there’s a non-surgical treatment option that has been proven effective in treating mild to moderate cases of OSA for sleep apnea sufferers. Radio Frequency Ablation (RFA) is a simple, painless, non-surgical treatment procedure that uses radio wave energy to shrink the tissue at the back of the tongue that blocks your airway and causes OSA.
How to cure sleep apnea with RFA treatment
RFA treatment relieves the potential for airway blockage that causes the snoring, breathing disruption, and lack of a good night’s sleep that are associated with untreated OSA.
With RFA treatment, patients suffering from mild to moderate OSA can often get rid of their CPAP masks forever. In some cases, and especially with more severe OSA, RFA treatment can make using a CPAP mask more tolerable, due to lower air pressure settings required after the RFA procedure.
