It seems like I learn something new about sleep apnea and various treatments for it every day. I read somewhere about using throat exercises to help with sleep apnea. My first reaction was that its bull but I thought I would do a little research anyway.
The first site that I looked at was a dental site where they described various “mouth exercises” such as puckering your lips and smiling for an extended time. Another was sticking your tongue out (there were several involving the tongue). The last group of exercises had the sleep apnea patient singing. I haven’t tried any of them yet.
I plan on doing a little more research and then try a few of them for a short period of time and then do a follow up post.
