Why Does it Happen?

Certain factors increase the chances of being a snorer:
  • Physiology - Some of us are more likely to snore due to our physiology
  • Sex - Men tend to put on upper body weight and therefore have more soft tissue around the neck. This makes men more prone to snoring
  • Weight - If you are overweight then you will have more soft tissue around your neck, which increases the chance of snoring
  • Age - As we age, our muscles become weaker and this can lead to weaker throat muscles
  • Lifestyle - Some people snore after drinking alcohol or taking sleeping tablets. This causes additional relaxation of muscles in the neck and throat
