Circadian Rhythm Disorders
These are disorders of the biological clock, causing a lifelong tendency to be awake until late at night or to become sleepy too early in the evening.
Circadian rhythm problems often emerge during puberty, resulting in decreased school performance.
Any disorder or lesion affecting the biological clock centers in the brain can cause disruption in the sleep-wake cycle. Examples include strokes, brain tumors and head trauma.
These disorders are best managed with a combination of medication and behavior modification. We are skilled at designing individualized treatment plans to improve disrupted sleep patterns.
