Snoring is a big problem in many people in the world. Unfortunately a few of them know the actual cause of their snoring. Most of them don’t know what should they do to stop snoring. It is a very serious social issue. It can affect your relations with your life partner. Snoring is due to resistance in air passage while breathing. It happens when we are sleeping. In sleeping the neck muscles become relax and they can’t control the soft tissues in the neck. That’s why these soft tissues resist in the air passage and produce vibration sound which we call as “Snoring”. While we are wake up our neck muscles control these soft tissues to resist in the air passage. Air passage resistance may be caused by the following reasons.
(1) Weakened neck muscles
(2) Dislocation of jaws which produce tenderness in muscles
(3) Aggregation of extra fat in the neck
(4) Blockage of nose
(5) Vibration in epiglottis
(6) Weakens of muscles due to drinking alcohol or usage of drugs
(7) Sleeping at the back which is reason of this issue
