Diaphragmatic Breathing and Heart Rate Variability Training for Improving Hypertension in Fragile X Associated Tremor/Ataxia
open to eligible people ages 50-90
To study whether heart rate variability training and respiratory coherence can improve hypertension in individuals with FXTAS. All patients will receive HRV biofeedback training for 20 sessions. Our hypothesis is that individuals with FXTAS who undergo 20 sessions of biofeedback training will improve self-regulatory skills for reducing hypertension, as measured by blood pressure measurement to below 140/90. The investigators hypothesize that individuals who successfully develop increased heart rate variability and better synchrony between heart rhythm and respiration will show the greatest improvements in self-regulatory skills for hypertension.
