  Insomnia

Insomnia is defined as "difficulty initiating or maintaining sleep, or both." Most adults have experienced some instances of sleeplessness at one time or another in their lives. Statistics show that insomnia is experienced by between 30-50% of Americans. However, when sleepless persists for more than just a few nights or is intermittent, lasting on and off for a continued length of time, it becomes important to seek medical treatment. Most of us have experienced how even one or a few night with little or no sleep can dramatically affect concentration, productivity, performance and even the way we feel, so you can imagine how consistent reduction in sleep or sleep quality can impact our lives in a negative light. It is essential to seek medical treatment before insomnia elevates to that stage.

Insomnia is a symptom, not a stand-alone diagnosis. Insomnia is often brought on by one or more other underlying causes, which may be psychological conditions such as Depression, Stress, or Anxiety Disorder or other medical conditions such as asthma or hyperthyroidism. Essential to a successful treatment of insomnia is to determine the underlying causes and treat them before or along with treating the insomnia. At Johnson Health, our multi-dimensional approach allows us to seek and address the underlying or co-occurring conditions and enable insomnia treatment that is targeted and personalized and ultimate successful. We not only have Board Certified Psychiatrists that can perform a comprehensive diagnostic evaluation, but we have on-site access to a sleep diagnosis center should additional testing such as a sleep study be performed.

Insomnia affects all age groups. Among older adults, insomnia affects women more often than men. The incidence increases with age. Not only can insomnia reduce the quality of life by affecting concentration, productivity, outlook, etc. but unaddressed insomnia may develop into chronic insomnia, which affects about 10% of population, and may lead to further complications.

Make sure to contact us promptly if you continue to have poor sleep or experience sleeplessness that lasts longer than a week or that interferes with your daytime activities and ability to function normally.
