Postural Orthostatic Hypotension Syndrome (P.O.T.S.) is the most common and involves an abnormal jump in heart rate when elevating from a supine (lying) position to get blood to the brain. If this reflex doesn’t respond correctly you could experience dizziness or fainting because of decreased blood flow to the brain.
Symptoms of dysautonomia may include:
|Brain fog/Forgetfulness||Inability to concentrate||Dizziness/syncope (fainting)||Hypersensitivity to sensory stimulus|
|Tachycardia (fast heart rate)||Nausea||Orthostatic Intolderance||Exercise Intolerance|
|Chest discomfort||Mood Swings||Palpations||Visual Disturbances|
|Excessive Fatigue||Vertigo||Low Blood Pressure||Anxiety|
- TILT TABLE Rehab
- Tilt table testing notifies the brainstem of postural changes so that it can respond by firing into the sympathetic system to steadily increase heart rate and blood pressure.
- Vagus nerve exercises and stimulation
- Parasympathetic control of the heart, lungs, and digestive tract.
- Vestibular Rehab
Patient receiving tilt table rehab paired with vagus nerve stimulation for treatment of dysautonomia.
