This type of nervous system may demonstrate signs of all of those listed in over-aroused plus Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Epstein-Barr Syndrome, M.S., ALS, RA, Fibromyalgia, Cancer, all autoimmune system disorders.
The NeuroInfiniti Stress Response Evaluation is an effective and accurate method of measuring your physiological stress response. It is a 12 minute computerized test, which is a totally non-invasive exam using an instrument found in research facilities around the world. Sensors are attached to your skin in such areas as your shoulder muscles, the top of your head, your waist and your hands. There are no needles or any form of skin penetration. From this computerized test, we can compare your neurological response and recovery to three types of stress challenges.
What does an SRE measure?
This portion of the exam concerns the ability of the brain to be busy when necessary and to rest when necessary. Stress events like the math test , noises and breathing exercise require brain activity (increased Beta) and when relaxed, increased Alpha/Theta.
We have long been aware of the importance of heart rate in maintaining good health responses; however, just taking a person’s pulse isn’t enough information to tell us what happens during stress situations. The stress test gives us a chance to see what speeds up the heart rate, and how quickly it can return to normal. There is a direct relationship between breathing and heart rates.
The normal response to stress is for the body to withdraw blood volume from the extremities and pool it in the organs. This action reduces the temperature in the hands and feet.
Heart Rate Variability
Heart rate variability is an effective method of measuring stress effects in your patient’s life. Research has established that HRV is also a good method of measuring the effectiveness of Chiropractic care.
The amount of moisture produced by the sweat glands in the hands is a direct result of stress. More hand moisture means a higher stress response. We can measure your ability to reduce the effects of your stressors. This means improved neurological responses.
While we are aware of changes in respiration rate during exertion, we seldom use it as a measurement of health. As there is a relationship between stress and oxygen requirement, the respiratory rate is very important. The pattern of breathing is equally as important such as chest elevation versus diaphragmatic breathing.
We can measure muscle activity throughout the body in both relaxed resting mode or in active motion mode. The trapezius and the muscles of the face are good indicators of over-tightened muscles due to stress responses.

Ask Yourself This Question…
Do I want care that deals with the symptoms, or do I want care that addresses the cause?
