Dysautonomia is a broad term that refers to a group of medical conditions characterized by dysfunction or dysregulation of the autonomic nervous system (ANS). The autonomic nervous system is responsible for regulating many involuntary bodily functions, such as heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, sweating, and more. When the ANS doesn't function properly, it can lead to a wide range of symptoms and health issues, collectively referred to as Dysautonomia.
These symptoms can vary in intensity and may be triggered or exacerbated by stress, physical activity, or changes in posture. Dysautonomia can significantly impact an individual's quality of life, as it often leads to debilitating symptoms that affect daily activities and require careful management.
Our approach to dysautonomia at Better Brain & Body is grounded in comprehensive assessment and personalized care. We understand that dysautonomia's symptoms are far-reaching, encompassing dizziness, chronic fatigue, pain, fainting, rapid heart rate, blood pressure fluctuations, gastrointestinal issues, and more, all of which can profoundly impact a patient's daily life. POTS and other autonomic nervous system disorders can present a wide variety of complaints that many medical professionals do not understand well. As a result, Dysautonomia is commonly overlooked as a primary diagnosis, and patients can go years with little explanation for their symptoms. At Better Brain & Body, an autonomic nervous system assessment is part of our primary assessment; therefore, a Dysautonomia diagnosis is never missed.
Our experienced team combines advanced diagnostic tools with a deep understanding of neurology to tailor Dysautonomia treatment plans that address the root causes and unique presentation of each patient's condition. We aim to restore and optimize autonomic balance and enhance our patient's quality of life through rehabilitative exercises, nutritional guidance, chiropractic care, and other targeted neurological therapies. Breathing exercises, tilt table therapy, neuromodulation, and much more can be used to regulate the autonomic nervous system and improve your Dysautonomia. Collaboration with other healthcare experts, such as cardiologists and physical therapists, further enriches our holistic approach to dysautonomia, fostering a supportive environment for patients as they navigate the complexities of their condition.
We understand the underlying neurological complications related to Dysautonomia and are dedicated to helping you with your specific needs. Our goal is to create a personalized Dysautonomia treatment plan that helps maximize our patient's quality of life.
