RLS causes unpleasant sensations in the extremities, accompanied by a strong urge to move the limbs. For many patients it is also associated with insomnia and an unpleasant feeling of crawling. In addition to coping strategies and RLS medications, the Southern California Pulmonary and Sleep Disorders Medical Center has added a drug-free therapy option using Relaxis, an FDA-approved vibrating counter-stimulation pad.
According to the National Institutes of Health, up to 10% of Americans suffer from RLS. Although the cause of primary RLS is unknown, secondary RLS is usually associated with an underlying medical cause.
Dr. Ronald A. Popper and his team work closely with patients to identify and treat the underlying causes responsible for RLS. Medical treatments include vitamin replenishment courses, GABA receptor agonists, dopamine agonists, anti-epileptic drugs, painkillers, and sleeping pills. A patient’s symptoms can also be alleviated by lifestyle changes, such as reducing caffeine or exercising regularly.
Since secondary RLS stems from underlying conditions, center staff offer a variety of treatments to alleviate these conditions. Since the treatment is unique for each patient, the center favors attentive and individualized care.
With the latest expansion of its services, the center strives to find the right solution for a patient’s symptoms. In addition to treating RLS, the Southern California Pulmonary and Sleep Disorders Medical Center also specializes in treating sleep disorders such as sleep apnea and insomnia.
