Stress can be emotional (relationships, work, and finances), chemical (diet, hydration, nicotine) or physical (slips, falls, poor posture, birthing process). When stress overwhelms our brain’s ability to adapt, dysfunction and symptoms can appear. At Brain Based Health Solutions, we focus on assessing how your body responds to and recovers from all three types of stressors. Once an assessment is completed, we can focus on correcting and stabilizing any current neurophysiological dysfunction. We work with you to create a plan of action to reach your health goals.
Dr. Cindy Burke uses the NeuroInfiniti Stress Response Evaluation as a starting point for all patients at Brain Based Health Solutions because of the insight it provides on how your brain and body work together and in response to stress. Understanding how your brain and body currently are functioning can help us understand why you are experiencing pain, muscle-tightening, anxiety and/or other symptoms.
When a situation or event in your daily life stimulates your body, your body responds to that stressor with what is called a stress response. At the same time, your nervous system interprets these physical changes as stressors as well, and responds accordingly. The NeuroInfiniti Stress Response Evaluation is a non-invasive, interactive evaluation that monitors your neurological responses to three different types of external stressors. This computerized evaluation monitors heart rate, respiration rate, skin conductance, temperature, muscle tension and EEG/brainwave patterns throughout the examination.
