Chiropractic Orlando FL Heart Rate Variability & Adaptation To Stress

"An individual's ability to react to change, adjust the stress response and then recover, has been shown as an important indicator of long-term health…This is a useful framework for the perinatal period as the stressors before pregnancy are then compounded by adaptations to the changes required during pregnancy, delivery, and the postpartum period. For example, women with greater trait anxiety are more likely to develop a depressive disorder postpartum."

- Translational Psychiatry

Why Is This Important In Orlando FL?

The ability to properly adapt to stressors alters all aspects of your health, especially when pregnant!

How do we measure the body's ability to adapt and heal?

At IWC, Heart Rate Variability, or HRV for short, is one of the tests that we do during our new patient exam! HRV is a measure of the variation in time between each heartbeat, and is controlled by our autonomic nervous system.

HRV is an amazing way to check imbalances with the autonomic nervous system. If a person is stuck in a fight-or-flight, sympathetic state, their HRV is low. If a person is in a more relaxed, parasympathetic state, their HRV is higher.

What Are The Benefits Of Having A Higher HRV?

A higher HRV means the nervous system is calmer and can better adapt to stressors that come about. It means you are more resilient. Health is ultimately how well can your body adapt and heal.

Research shows that a low HRV is associated with depression, anxiety, and cardiovascular disease, and makes the body more susceptible to injury.

How can chiropractic and network spinal care help increase HRV?

Our care at IWC is designed to remove nervous system interference. When you can remove interference, the nervous system can heal and function more optimally. This allows the body to get into a calmer, parasympathetic state. In a parasympathetic state, the body can increase its ability to self-regulate which promotes more healing and a higher HRV.
