The focus in this 2 hour lecture, is on how enhanced sympathetic activation of the nervous system affects the brain and the connective tissue. Research shows that there is a connection between enhanced sympathetic activation and reduced mobility, stomach problems, poor sleep, puls, anxiety and affected executive functions. We have the possibilities as physiotherapist’s to reduce sympathetic activation, rehabilitate the atrophied areas in the brain and work with mobility and sliding surfaces in the connective tissue
