Assessment of Nerve Disturbance using Heart Rate and Skin Temperature

  • CHARLOTTE, NC Holiday Inn Express, 108 Airport Commons Charlotte, NC (map)

In the traditional chiropractic model, the main purpose of spinal adjustment is to improve the health of the nervous system, particularly the autonomic nervous system (ANS).  This seminar teaches chiropractors the rationale, procedure, and interpretation of evidence-based in-office testing that will monitor ANS changes following your spinal care, comparing pre- and post-adjustment findings. An additional feature of the seminar is the instruction on how to put together a case study on these findings, suitable for your website or, if you want to take it to the next level, in a peer-reviewed journal.

The testing covered in this seminar includes:

 a.      Skin temperature analysis (symmetry and pattern models). Instruments include simple single probe infrared thermometers as well as the elaborate TyTron thermographic system

 b.     Resting heart rate and heart rate variability. Technology includes App-based methods as well as a three-lead ECG unit.

 c.      Sit-to-stand heart rate test using App and radial artery palpation.

 If you’re looking for objective, evidence-based assessments to monitor autonomic function in your practice, this seminar is for you!
