heart pressure regulation
Poor blood pressure regulation as a result of spinal cord injury is due to the impaired functioning of the autonomic nervous system. The autonomic nervous system regulates all of the other physiological functions that we normally take for granted. In addition to blood pressure regulation, temperature regulation, heart rate, respiration and control of the bowel and bladder are also included. Poor blood pressure regulation may show symptoms of feeling light headed or even fainting, particularly if one is moving from a lying down to a seated \or to standing position. Dangerous conditions may exist if the body’s blood pressure is not regulated well. The Neuro-Acupuncture techniques work to strengthen the signaling of the autonomic nervous system and improve blood pressure regulation.
