Neurovegetative diagnostic is used to identify disorders of the autonomic nervous system.
The autonomous (vegetative) nervous system regulates involuntary (not controllable by ourselves) and vital functions, such as breathing, blood circulation, digestion, sweating and bladder function.
It is mainly divided into the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system.
The sympathetic nervous system increases the heartrate (flight reflex); the parasympathetic nervous system does exactly the opposite (slowing of the heartbeat).
Disorders of the autonomous nervous system may occur in various neurological diseases, such as Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis, or POTS (see EDS – POTS).
Cervical spine instability may cause an irritation of autonomous nerves, and therefore do also lead to disorders of the autonomous nerve system.
The autonomous nervous system controls our whole body, which easily explains why there may be symptoms like:
extreme sweating or absence of sweating, tachycardia, syncopes, breathing issues, bladder irritations, diarrhea, nausea, vertigo etc.
Therapy depends on the underlying disease.
