While there are numerous pain scales from reported patient experience, there are little or no inflammatory measurement scales. As a result, most patients will deny having inflammation even in the presence of objective biomarkers to the contrary. It’s important to know the biochemical/biological markers that are consistent with inflammation status as a predictor of longevity and morbidity.
Additional, non-invasive methods of the inflammatory response that are clinically reproducible and highly accurate can assist clinical decisions immensely. Heart Rate Variability and digital pulse analysis provide strong insight into the function of the autonomic nervous system. Both technologies provide a clear picture of sympathetic and parasympathetic function and overall neurological control of the body.
