Autonomic Nervous System was designed for short term survival and persistent “upregulation” or tone in the sympathetic system (stress), is directly related to a cascade of negative neurophysiological responses that are connected to chronic inflammation, disease, pain and impaired exercise tolerance. Sympatho-vagal nervous system imbalances increase blood pressure, restricts blood/lymphatic flow and activate muscle tone, all of which are counter-productive for both Dry Needling patients and practitioners.
Q? How do you counter-act this stress activation? Neuromodulation!
Why is Neuromodulation So Important?
