What Is The Pulse Wave Profiler?
The Insight Pulse Wave Profiler (PWP) allows your chiropractor to monitor the autonomic nervous system and your body’s stress response by collecting Heart Rate Variability (HRV) data. The PWP is a unique, inspiring, and powerful tool for the chiropractic profession to measure HRV.
Why is Measuring Heart Rate Variability So Important?
Chiropractors specialize in the spine and nervous system. Most examinations center around the spine. For the first time, instead of measuring data on or around the spine, we can directly measure chiropractic care’s effect on the function of a vital organ!
Measuring HRV is a significant “proof point.” This measurement demonstrates the whole body health and wellness benefits of chiropractic care. HRV goes beyond simple relief from pain and symptoms.
Heart rate variability is the gold standard for research to show how a person is handling stress. Proper balance and tone are associated with better adaptability and a healthy lifestyle. Low heart rate variability is associated with aging and poor heart health.
Why Is Our Clinic Different?
At Dody Chiropractic Center for Wholeness, we look at the whole health and whole person. PWP provides the doctor with the ability to determine your overall ability to adapt to your environment. PWP does this by looking at the timing of your pulse and determining the balance and tone of your nervous system.
What Does Chiropractic Do For Heart Rate Variability?
Published research has shown that chiropractic adjustments have a beneficial effect on heart rate variability. Heart Rate Variability is the natural rise and fall of heart rate caused by several bodily functions, including breathing and relaxation.
HRV is not unique to chiropractic care. Healthcare professionals utilize HRV for a wide variety of clinical applications. Chiropractors use HRV to get a window into how the autonomic nervous system (ANS) is working.
Pulse Wave Profiler measures heart rate variability. HRV measures heart rate in the resting state. Your autonomic nervous system controls heart rate. This measurement tells us how well your body can process and adapt to physical, chemical, and emotional stress. So as you can see, this advanced technology gives you insight into your health and wellness. If you would like to find out what your HRV is, please schedule an appointment today.
