CPAP exercises to cure OSA?
Specialized CPAP exercises:


Things You'll Need
sleep apnea condition
Show More Instructions

1
Repeat your vowels for three minutes strait to help treat sleep apnea.

This is going to feel silly, exaggerating the tone of each vowel will help make this exercise for sleep apnea stretch out your throat.

2
Push your tongue firmly against the back of your front teeth and slide it to the the back of your mouth for three minutes.

Purse your mouth firmly and hold for thirty seconds. Performing these sleep apnea treatment exercises makes you feel pretty cool doesn't it?

4
Contract the muscles of the back of the throat for another thirty seconds or so. You may feel kind of like a frog doing this sleep apnea exercise.

5
Force your lower jaw to the left for thirty seconds. Now back to the right for thirty seconds.

6
Perform these throat exercises on a daily basis if you suffer from mild sleep apnea. Studies have shown that this can be an effective sleep apnea treatment.

anyone try these?

RE: CPAP exercises to cure OSA?
Throat exercises were recommended to a guy on another forum. He had lost weight and the doctor said the exercises might get him off CPAP. I don't know if he was supposed to see a speech therapist and I haven't heard how he's doing.
The exercises you've written are easy and not very time consuming. Contracting the muscles at the back of the throat is something had to do. Thanks for the info, sleepykick.

RE: CPAP exercises to cure OSA?
On the old forum, we had some guy copy these exercises and he was marketing it as a cure for OSA. He'd sell you the above information for $19.95, if I remember correctly. Of course, he didn't give the specifics of the program until you paid for it. One member did and then sent the info to me. It was very similar to what you posted here, but with all kinds of fluff added to make it look like you're getting a lot for your money.

So, thanks for saving our members $19.95, sleepykick. Thumbs-up-2
