Sometimes snoring and sleep apnea only happen when a person is lying in a certain position. In these mild cases, positional therapy can help open the airway.
If you have mild sleep apnea, Riverside's Sleep Disorders Institute can help you determine the positional therapy that is right for you. In most cases, this therapy is just finding a way to help you sleep on your side. Something as simple as pinning or sewing a tennis ball to a pouch on the back of your pajama top could do the trick.
