Pinehurst Medical Clinic's (PMC) insomnia specialists are committed to ensuring their patients are rested by getting the best night of sleep possible. PMC's insomnia specialists have the ability to evaluate the underlying cause of their patient's insomnia and develop a plan of treatment using Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Insomnia (CBT-I). CBT-I is a structured program that helps you identify and replace thoughts and behaviors that can cause or worsen sleep problems with habits that promote sound sleep. Studies dating back over 30 years have shown CBT-I to be as effective, if not more than prescription sleeping pills.
Patients presenting with insomnia may not need to participate in a sleep study unless there are signs and symptoms of other sleep disorders. We may perform at-home monitoring with special portable devices that help to further assess and define sleep issues.
Initial appointments with a PMC sleep specialist typically last 30-60 minutes to gather information about any sleep problems the patient may be experiencing. Subsequent visits are designed to assess treatment progress, provide feedback and further improve sleep until treatment goals are met.
PMC sleep specialists are conveniently located in Cumberland, Lee and Moore counties and offer a wide range of diagnostic and treatment options to the communities they serve.
