NeuroInfiniti Stress Response Evaluation in Santa Clara
Our chiropractor, Dr. David Hoewisch, in Santa Clara is now offering the Neuroinfiniti Stress Response Evaluation. The Neurofiniti tests seven different metrics related to how well your body handles stressors and how well you recover from those stressors. Once a baseline is established, chiropractic care can be completely customized to your immediate and long-term health needs.
Hazards of Excessive Stress Levels
Chronic, excessive stress levels can impede your ability to heal and make treatments less effective, and while it’s true that we don’t encounter the physical threats of our ancestors, we do encounter other types of stress, including working long hours, deadlines, not getting enough sleep and financial worries. These stressors can trigger the same stress responses as a physical attack. Whenever we encounter a perceived or actual threat to our health and safety, our body releases adrenaline and cortisol. These two hormones increase heart rate, strength, speed and reduces the appetite, reproductive system and even the growth system. It also alters the way our immune system function.
Once the threat has passed, our body is usually good at returning all hormones to their prior levels. Unfortunately, our hectic modern lives can lead to experiencing one stressor after another, resulting in stress hormones staying high. When stress hormones are elevated for an extended period of time, it can result in anxiety, depression, heart disease, insomnia and digestive and intestinal problems, and reduce the ability to get pregnant. High levels of stress can even impede your ability to heal from sports and personal injuries.
The Neuroinfiniti Stress Response Evaluation helps locate stressors that could be affecting your health and ability to recover from injuries so that a detailed treatment program can be created to lower your levels of stress, improve your recovery rate from injuries and help with your overall health and wellness.
Neurologically Based Chiropractic with NeuroInfiniti
Neuroinfiniti is a new neurologically based chiropractic diagnostic technique that tests the functionality of the central nervous system, which is responsible for every process in the body. When the central nervous system isn’t functioning at peak efficiency, it can lead to many chronic illnesses and conditions, including digestive issues, allergies, headaches, overall body pain and a decrease in the effectiveness of the immune system. You may even become more prone to sports and personal injuries, and it may take you longer to heal from those injuries.
NeuroInfiniti and Biofeedback
NureoInfiniti measures biofeedback via electronic sensors that have the ability to monitor your heart rate, breathing, muscle activity and even your brain waves. For example, a less advanced biofeedback device might be the wristband you wear while you exercise in order to calculate how fast your heart is beating and how many calories you’ve burned during your exercise session.
The NeuroInfiniti is a more complex and sensitive type of biofeedback device that can help you identify your body’s automatic reactions to stress and take proactive measures to lower your stress response and the levels of stress hormones in your body. Once you know how your body reacts to stress and take steps to naturally lower your levels of stress, you should notice an increase in your recovery rate from injuries and an improvement in your overall health.
Metrics Measured During NeuroInfinity Biofeedback Sessions
NeuroInfiniti biofeedback sessions involve placing sensors on your body. These sensors are designed to track seven factors, including:
- How Your Heart Rate Varies
- Your Body Temperature
- Your Brain Activity
- Your Breathing
- Your Heart Rate and Pulse
- Your Muscle Tone
- Your Skin Response
Your NeuroInfiniti Session with Our Chiropractor in Santa Clara
NeuroInfiniti sessions with our chiropractor in Santa Clara can last anywhere from 12 to 20 minutes. Our chiropractor will place sensors on your skin to measure your brainwaves, breathing, heart rate, muscle tone, temperature and skin response before, during and after each stressor. For a few minutes, baseline measurements will be taken. Next, you will be subjected to various stimuli that are designed to provoke a stress response. Stimulants can include math problems, noise and verbal questions as well as other types of stressors. In some instances, you may be able to choose your own stressors.
After the diagnostic test, we will explain your results and develop a comprehensive treatment plan that is designed to help you lower your levels of stress, improve the function of your central nervous system and help you heal from your current injuries.
