Restless Legs Syndrome

Restless Legs Syndrome Philadelphia


To many people in Philadelphia, Restless Legs Syndrome (RLS) does not sound like a real medical disorder. However, those who suffer from Restless Legs know it is indeed real and can affect their ability to sleep well. It is highly treatable and treatment can make a major difference in the ability to fall or stay asleep.

Fry is a leader in the treatment of Restless Legs Syndrome and has led many studies on RLS when she worked in academic medicine. All of our physicians are up to date on the latest and most advanced treatments.

Our Center for Sleep Medicine Philadelphia has provided relief to patients with mild to severe restless legs syndrome in Philadelphia. Medications can be very effective in treating this but we also focus on lifestyle changes that may lessen the symptoms naturally, without medicine.

Many patients come to us for a second opinion on medication that is not completely effective, or in rare instances that is worsening the problem. We have experience in identifying this and modifying the treatment for better control of restless legs symptoms.

The Center for Sleep Medicine Philadelphia is a private practice dedicated to Sleep Medicine.  Dr. Fry started practicing Sleep Medicine Philadelphia in 1981. She started the first sleep center in the city, as part of the Medical College of Pennsylvania.  In 1999, Dr. Fry expanded the practice to include the Mercy Fitzgerald Sleep Disorders Center, in Darby, PA. Our practice continues to evaluate and treat patients at this location.
