Falls & Autonomic
Dysfunction

We were among the first in south India to offer an integrated assessmentof gait, fall risk and autonomic dysfunction in people

Overview

Autonomic dysfunction develops when the nerves of the ANS are damaged. This condition is called autonomic neuropathy or dysautonomia.

Autonomic dysfunction can range from mild to life-threatening. It can affect part of the ANS or the entire ANS. Sometimes the conditions that cause problems are temporary and reversible. Others are chronic, or long term, and may continue to worsen over time.

Signs

Autonomic dysfunction can affect a small part of the ANS or the entire ANS. Some symptoms that may indicate the presence of an autonomic nerve disorder include:

Diagnosis

Diagnosis

While the diagnosis is clinical, brain imaging, electrophysiology, blood tests to rule out reversible causes or indeed contributing factors and a thorough pre-rehabilitation assessment including evaluation for co-morbidities (associated conditions) will be required in all instances. At Buddhi Clinic our assessment includes standard outcome indicators for activities of daily life, quality of life, neuro-disability and mental health.

Treatment

Combining a detailed clinical evaluation with electro-physiological testing, we have developed a unique model of assessing people for this complex problem. In the past two years we have taken it further, combining conventional drugs for autonomic dysfunction with a unique combination of non-pharmacological therapies. Blending postural exercises with yoga, relaxation, meditation, acupressure & therapeutic massages, we have helped many falling men overcome their failing neurons.
