UPPER AIRWAY RESISTANCE SYNDROME (UARS) is an increased effort to breathe while asleep in an attempt to compensate for a reduction in airflow through to the lungs.

It has some similar symptoms to frank OSA and TemporoMandibular Joint Dysfunction so it can easily be misdiagnosed and mistreated.

The consequences of not treating it is huge as it can place you at a higher risk to stroke, coronary heart disease, hypertension, diabetes, cancer, depression and developing full blown OSA.

Research supports that it is more common in women (2:1), in the younger population and the less obese.

So please be aware, if you have any of these symptoms: 
    
-Morning headaches, feeling fatigued, unrefreshed sleep.
-Chronic pain, tension headaches, clicking jaw.
-Grind/clench your teeth, jaw pain, poor memory/concentration, irritability.
-Mild snoring.
As you may have UARS.

Please call us or email info@malisano to arrange a screening assessment for UARS.
