Is it possible for exercise to help with someone's Sleep Apnea?

Asked a year ago

Hi friends! I have sleep apnea and the symptoms are sometimes not the best. I was told by my aunt that doing some exercises can help with easing my symptoms. Is this actually possible?

Yes, it is. Exercise helps deal with sleep apnea, especially obstructive sleep apnea (OSA), in which the airway closes during sleep due to the failure of the muscles to keep the throat open. OSA affects breathing during sleep and causes sleep disruption. Regular exercise can help improve muscle tone and increase oxygen intake, reducing the severity of OSA and improving sleep quality.
