According to Medical Xpress, researchers have discovered a potential treatment for those suffering from the disruptive condition: singing. In a study published in the International Journal of Otolaryngology and Head and Neck Surgery, researchers studied 60 patients who were simple snorers and 60 patients who suffered from obstructive sleep apnoea (OSA), a condition that can cause people to temporarily stop breathing during sleep. Over a period of three months, half of the group participated in a series of singing exercises, while the other half of the group did nothing. At the end of the study, the singing group experienced a significant reduction in snoring and an improvement in sleep quality compared to those in the control group, who experienced no change. According to researchers, the singing exercises may help strengthen the weak muscles in the soft palate and upper throat area responsible for causing both snoring and OSA, Medical Xpress reported. Overall, researchers say this new treatment could be a great therapeutic option for the millions of people experiencing sleep disruptions due to snoring and OSA though more changes would be needed to completely eliminate the problem. “It opens up a whole new avenue of potential treatment which avoids surgery, so it is definitely good news for snorers, said study researcher Malcolm Hilton, a consultant otolaryngologist at the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust and sub dean of the University of Exeter Medical School.

The exercises were easy to perform and two thirds of people were able to complete the three month programme doing the exercises most days. “It opens up a whole new avenue of potential treatment which avoids surgery, so it is definitely good news for snorers.

Irregular sleep habits, regular use of over-the-counter or prescription sedatives, smoking and excessive alcohol use can all contribute to snoring. Excess weight and obesity may also trigger or exacerbate snoring. Improved dietary and exercise habits can often help manage this type of snoring while eliminating known allergens and smoking can also provide relief. Not all patients respond well to lifestyle changes, however, and in some cases, the snoring may continue. Dr. Ghasri, West Hollywood dentist, may recommend snore therapy treatments.
