ANS Monitoring with Physio PS
The Autonomic Nervous System (ANS)
The Autonomic Nervous System has two components (Parasympathetic & Sympathetic) that need to be in balance to remain functioning at their best efficiency. When they are not in balance, it is called autonomic dysfunction.
Autonomic dysfunction develops when the nerves of the autonomic nervous system are damaged. This condition is called autonomic neuropathy, dysautonomia, or autonomic dysfunction.
Autonomic dysfunction can range from mild to life-threatening. It can affect part of the autonomic nervous system or the entire system. Sometimes the conditions that cause problems are temporary and reversible, while others can be chronic or long-term and may continue to worsen over time.
Do you experience any of these symptoms of autonomic dysfunction?
ANS MONITORING HAS MANY BENEFITS

Concussions have become a major talking point in recent years, not just among the medical community, but as a part of the mainstream news, within the sports industry, and with parents.

Pain management is one thing that for most of modern medicine, doctors and caregivers have had to rely on the “best guess” approach, meaning that aside from dosing guidelines and patient response, the doctor was making an educated deduction of reason to administer pain management.
