Many of us have experienced the occasional restless night and feeling groggy the next day. However, if sleep problems occur regularly and interrupt your daily life, you may be suffering from a sleep disorder. Our UofL Physicians – Sleep Medicine providers understand that poor quality sleep can have a negative impact on your daily routine and overall quality of life. Sleeping well is essential to your physical health and emotional well-being. Even minimal sleep loss can negatively influence your mood, energy levels, thinking and ability to handle stress. Ignoring sleep problems and disorders can lead to a variety of physical and mental health illnesses, accidents, impaired or weakened job performance and enhanced stress. If you want to feel your best, stay healthy and perform up to your full potential, effective sleep is a necessity.
Our team of experienced, knowledgeable professionals works together to evaluate your situation and develop a personalized treatment plan. Board-certified pulmonologists, neurologists, psychologists, sleep technicians and nurses comprise our team of medical professionals. Sleep problems that manifest as chronic ailments are approached from a chronic disease management standpoint, integrating the social, behavioral, environmental and clinical aspects of chronic disease control.
