Does your snoring suffering your partner? Then here is the simple tip to control that disturbing snoring with simple exercises. The researchers have found that simple exercises helps in reducing snoring by 36 percent and total power of snoring by 59 percent.
"This study demonstrates a promising, non-invasive treatment for large populations suffering from snoring, the snorers and their bed partners, that are largely omitted from research and treatment," said Barbara Phillips, medical director, sleep laboratory at the University of Kentucky College of Medicine in the US.
The study was conducted on 39 patients who were randomised for three months of treatment with nasal dilator strips plus respiratory exercises (Control) or daily oropharyngeal exercises (therapy).
The participants were evaluated at study entry and end by sleep questionnaires and full polysomnography with objective measurements of snoring.
Snorers can try pushing the tip of the tongue against the roof of the mouth and sliding the tongue backward. "The exercises significantly reduced snoring in our study group," said study author Geraldo Lorenzi-Filho from University of Sao Paulo, Brazil.
The study appeared in the journal Chest.
