Exercises

Exercises designed to reduce snoring are a popular solution. Alternatively you can find recommended exercises on information resource websites. The exercises aim to strengthen and tone the throat and jaw muscles.

There is very little research into the effectiveness of these exercise programs in reducing snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea. However multiple studies have indicated that being overweight in combination with being a snorer is highly predicative of obstructive sleep apnoea. Furthermore it is widely accepted that the reduced muscle tone that accompanies ageing increases the likelihood of snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea. 

Any exercises that reduce fat around the throat and increase muscle tone are likely to be beneficial in reducing snoring and obstructive sleep apnoea.
