Windsor 50+ Expo

A couple of weeks ago I was at the Windsor 50+ Expo at Roseland Golf and Curling Club. It was great to be able to meet some new faces as well as connect with some of my existing patients!

This collapsing of the tissue and muscles causes them to come in close contact with each other and start to "vibrate" when you inhale or exhale. This vibration is what we hear as snoring. The severity of a person's snoring can vary greatly from very mild, non irritating snoring to snoring which the entire house can hear and will keep people awake all night. Some people simply keep elbowing or shaking the offender throughout the night to slightly wake them up and stop the snoring. Some couples...
