The importance of assessing Rate on Exertion with Shen-Hammer Pulse Diagnosis:

Pulse diagnosis can be scary for lots of practitioners; not everyone has been fortunate enough to spend years deep diving into the intricacies and subtleties, and often practitioners don't even spend much time checking pulse at all.  In this ShopTalk episode, I detail one of the most important assessments on the pulse, explain its significance, and detail how to do it.  And it is EASY and QUICK to perform.  If you treat pain, emotional issues like depression/anxiety/panic, or complaints like insomnia, dizziness/vertigo, or specialize in internal medicine conditions like chronic fatigue, fibromyalgia, POTS, and autoimmune disorders, you will find this assessment super valuable.
