The world today is fast-paced and full of constant demands. In such a scenario, most of us end up ignoring just the thing which is essential in maintaining our overall health and well-being: A good night’s sleep. But did you know, there exists a group of professionals dedicated to help us sleep? They are called sleep experts. This article will tell you all there is to know about sleep experts and also guide you on how you can contact them with our United We Care Platform.

Who is a Sleep Expert?

A sleep expert has many names. Some call them sleep specialists, others call them sleep physicians. But essentially, these professionals are doctors or psychologists who specialize in diagnosing, treating, and managing sleep related issues. Sleep experts typically undergo specialized training and education in sleep medicine and disorders [1]. 

There are over 80 sleep disorders and these disorders can have serious negative consequences for a person. Sleep experts possess extensive knowledge of these disorders as well as of the sleep-wake cycle and try to help an individual recover from their issues [1] [2]. 

The first step in treatment of sleep related issues is diagnosis. After diagnosis, experts create individualized treatment plans for their patients where they may involve a combination of approaches. Commonly, treatment includes lifestyle modifications, behavioral therapy, medication, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy, light therapy, etc [2].

Sleep experts aim to empower individuals with knowledge and strategies to improve their sleep quality. They educate individuals about sleep hygiene and provide guidance on optimizing sleep environments. Such education and empowerment contributes to the person’s long-term well-being.

When do you Need a Sleep Expert?

Poor sleep can actually be dangerous for both the person and their surroundings. At an individual level, poor sleep results in reduced cognitive and motor as well as overall negative mood throughout the day. If poor sleep is chronic, or long term, then it also increases the risk of disorders like diabetes and cardiovascular problems. Not only that, since your mental alertness is low it increases the risk of accidents which can be detrimental to everyone in your surroundings [3].

When you find your sleep constantly disturbed, have a night of poor or light sleep, or feel exhausted throughout the day, it may be time to consult a sleep expert. Some common signs of disturbed sleep issues include [4]:

While some sleep disturbances are common when experiencing changes or stress in life, persistent sleep disturbance can be dangerous for a person. You can also contact your general physician before contacting a sleep expert if you have doubts regarding your symptoms.

What are the Benefits of Consultation with a Sleep Expert?

As mentioned above, sleep experts possess in-depth knowledge and expertise in understanding the complexities of sleep. By seeking their assistance, you can understand your problems better and obtain a diagnosis and a personalized treatment plan for addressing your issues. 

Some benefits of approaching a sleep expert include the following:

What are the Benefits of Consultation with a Sleep Expert?

  • Treatment of Sleep Disorders: Sleep disorders such as insomnia and sleep apnea can lead to poor health outcomes for a person. If you suspect yourself to be struggling with a sleep disorder or are consistently having sleep related problems, sleep experts are the best individuals to provide you with an appropriate treatment plan and solution.
  • Sleep Hygiene and Education: Sleep hygiene refers to practices and habits that promote good sleep. Experts can provide invaluable guidance on improving sleep environments, establishing consistent bedtime routines, managing stress, and adopting healthy sleep habits.
