ABSTRACT:
Introduction:Snoring is common in the general population with up to 25% of women and 45% of men habitual snoring. Snoring may not destroy sleep, but it is a common manifestation of Obstructive Sleep Apnea(OSA), a potentially life threatening condition.Habitual snorers can be at a high risk of serious health problems. Materials and Methods: 30 habitual snorers were selected to carry out the oropharyngeal exercises.Their snore score was recorded before and after perfoming the set of exercises. Results: There is a significant decrease in their snore score from (119.43±41.23) to (67.57±33.92) by the influence of oropharyngeal exercise on them. Conclusion: The study displayed that oropharyngeal exercises can significantly reduce snoring and its serious health problems such as Obstructive Sleep Apnea(OSA).
