  Title Lifestyle modifications and the resolution of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome: A case report [case report]
Journal J Chiropr Med. 2011 Jun;10(2):118-125
Peer Review Yes
Publication Type Case Report

Objective: This purpose of this case study is to describe a natural method to help in management of obstructive sleep apnea syndrome (OSAS), which is known to be a common and debilitating condition.

Clinical Features: Obstructive sleep apnea syndrome is typically managed with a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device, which the patient wears during sleep to help maintain respiration. This report describes the chiropractic management and resolution of OSAS with dietary modifications in a 55-year-old man who wore a CPAP for 10 years.

Intervention and Outcome: After adhering to dietary modifications for 3 months, the patient no longer required the use of the CPAP device and continues to have a normal active lifestyle almost 7 years later.

Conclusion: Dietary modifications may be an effective tool to improve the management of OSAS.
