Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, POTS, is becoming increasingly common in our society. One to One Physical Therapy views this syndrome to involve multi-system dysregulation, in particular the autonomic nervous system (dysautonomia) and postural system.
Conventional treatment typically involves medication, pressure garments, and blood volume management via proper hydration and even IV fluids.
At One to One Physical Therapy we focus on re-training the autonomic nervous system via breathing, postural, and sensory re-education. This allows the nervous system to become more regulated and centered thus reducing feelings of lightheadedness, dizziness, nausea, and imbalance.
