This perspective piece puts forward the notion that measuring heart rate variability, or other forms of cardiac autonomic regulation, after spinal cord injury must be performed during a test of autono...
Manipulative therapies include osteopathic manipulative treatment and many other forms of manual therapies used to manage a variety of conditions in adults and children. Spinal manipulative therapy ma...
Temporomanbular disorders (TMD) are common chronic musculoskeletal pain conditions among orofacial pain. Painful temporomandibular disorders (TMD) condition such as myalgia and arthralgia can be manag...
Despite the many benefits of performing physical exercise in patients with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), information on the response of acute cardiac autonomic modulation in subjects w...
The present study used a longitudinal randomized clinical trial to test whether an early intervention has causal effects on children's autonomic nervous system regulation. When children were infants, ...
The purpose of this study is to determine the effects of spinal manipulative therapy on autonomic balance and to determine if there exists a relationship between autonomic state and postur...
The purpose of this study is to determine if spinal manipulative therapy can affect cognitive processing as determined by performance on a Stroop task. It is specifically hypothesized tha...
The purposes of this study is to determined the effects of instrument applied spinal manipulative therapy upon dual-task performance involving complex postural and cognitive task.
This study considers whether treatment effects in response to spinal manipulative therapy for individuals experiencing low back pain are dependent upon the context in which the interventio...
Athletes have been exposed to an ever increasing training load and subsequent biomechanical overload due to a constant demand for performance enhancement. As a result, it is observed an in...
A performance measure for rating the ability of a person to perform usual activities, evaluating a patient's progress after a therapeutic procedure, and determining a patient's suitability for therapy. It is used most commonly in the prognosis of cancer therapy, usually after chemotherapy and customarily administered before and after therapy. It was named for Dr. David A. Karnofsky, an American specialist in cancer chemotherapy.
The craniosacral division of the autonomic nervous system. The cell bodies of the parasympathetic preganglionic fibers are in brain stem nuclei and in the sacral spinal cord. They synapse in cranial autonomic ganglia or in terminal ganglia near target organs. The parasympathetic nervous system generally acts to conserve resources and restore homeostasis, often with effects reciprocal to the sympathetic nervous system.
Agents affecting the function of, or mimicking the actions of, the autonomic nervous system and thereby having an effect on such processes as respiration, circulation, digestion, body temperature regulation, certain endocrine gland secretions, etc.
The exercise capacity of an individual as measured by endurance (maximal exercise duration and/or maximal attained work load) during an EXERCISE TEST.
The nervous system outside of the brain and spinal cord. The peripheral nervous system has autonomic and somatic divisions. The autonomic nervous system includes the enteric, parasympathetic, and sympathetic subdivisions. The somatic nervous system includes the cranial and spinal nerves and their ganglia and the peripheral sensory receptors.
