After having read this article, the health and fitness professional will be able to ▪ Describe the signs/symptoms, risk factors, and causes of obstructive sleep apnea ▪ Identify the anatomical location and functions of the primary oropharyngeal skeletal muscles ▪ Instruct how to perform oropharyngeal exercises to a client/patient ▪ Integrate evidence-based oropharyngeal exercise training into a physical activity plan for persons suffering from obstructive sleep apnea This article provides an oral myofunctional exercise prescription aimed to improve the neuromuscular function of muscles that stabilize the upper airway for persons with obstructive sleep apnea.
