Welcome to our clinic, where we offer a the most advanced neurological rehabilitation here in Burlington
Following an our long detailed neurological and vestibular exam, Computerized Balance and Vestibular Tests, our team of dedicated professionals who are Board Certified in Vestibular and brain Injury will create a personalized care tailored plan using cutting-edge techniques to enhance neurological function and restore balance.
Individuals suffering from vestibular disorders frequently encounter severe symptoms that hinder a person’s ability to manage their daily life. Some common symptoms of vestibular disorders are:
- Blurry vision
- Feeling disconnected (like you are floating or spinning)
- Altered gait
- Falling or stumbling
- Light sensitivity (photophobia)
- Eye fatigue
- Sound sensitivity
- Double vision
- Reading difficulties
We use a comprehensive Videonystagmography (VNG) test to determine the nature of the vestibular dysfunction and to provide a proper diagnosis. With VNG goggles and not frenzle goggles, we are able to develop an individualized vestibular program with our subjective and objective findings.
Neuro-Visual Therapy is used to treat symptoms that appear after a variety of conditions, such as:
- Acquired Brain Injury (ABI)
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)
- Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)
- Functional Neurological Disorder (FND)
- Vestibular Disorders (Ex: Benign Paroxysmal Positional Vertigo – BPPV, Vestibular Neuritis, Meniere’s Syndrome)
Their brain processes information differently, resulting in multiple prescriptions. Neuro-Visual Therapy aims to reduce the effects of visual dysfunction. It seeks to maximize brain function and improve quality of life.
Post-concussion therapy, also known as concussion rehabilitation or post-concussion syndrome treatment, is a specialized form of therapy designed to help individuals recover from the effects of a concussion. When someone sustains a concussion, their brain undergoes a temporary disturbance in its normal functioning, leading to a range of physical, cognitive, and emotional symptoms.
The therapy may encompass a combination of physical exercises, balance therapy and coordination training, cognitive exercises to improve memory and attention, vision therapy to address visual disturbances, and relaxation techniques to manage stress and anxiety. The goal is to gradually reintegrate the person back into their daily activities, work, or sports, while minimizing symptoms and preventing further complications.
Post-concussion therapy is vital in helping individuals regain functionality, improve quality of life, and prevent long-term consequences. It provides a supportive and structured approach to recovery, helping individuals bounce back from their concussion with proper guidance and care.
What is Interactive Metronome? Great question!
The Interactive Metronome (IM) is a computer-based program that has been proven to enhance various cognitive and physical skills. IM can help with cognition, attention, memory, speech/language, executive functioning, comprehension, motor skills, and sensory skills.
It is utilized in the treatment of numerous conditions, including (but not limited to):
- Sensory processing disorder
- Learning disabilities
- Developmental delays
- Speech-language issues
- Non-verbal learning disorder
- Traumatic brain injury
Furthermore, it is also valuable in the rehabilitation and treatment of various neurological conditions such as strokes, brain and spinal cord injuries, concussions, amputations, Parkinson’s and multiple sclerosis.
IM functions by using a precise computer-generated beat to which the individual synchronizes a range of whole body exercises while receiving visual and auditory feedback to improve timing, rhythm, and synchronization in the brain. This program has game-like features that are engaging and motivating.
Neurostimulation provides low levels of electrical stimulation (RPSS Therapy) to the brain through transcranial direct current stimulation when applied to different parts of the body.
This treatment is a safe and effective way to achieve lasting changes in brain function and optimize performance, leading to improved outcomes for people with neurological conditions. It is non-invasive and well-researched, and it allows patients to receive neurological treatments in the most comfortable way possible.
Repetitive Peripheral Somatosensory (RPSS) technique is remarkable. It is a state-of-the-art modern method that benefits a wide range of people with their rehabilitation.
It is often used alongside other rehab techniques to enhance neuroplasticity, which is the ability of the brain and nervous system to reorganize itself and adapt to changes. Studies have shown that RPSS can help to enhance responsiveness of the motor cortex, which is the part of the brain that controls movement. Which means it can help improve the performance of the upper and lower limbs.
Repetitive Peripheral Somatosensory Neurostimulation also provides controlled enhancement of sensory input via the nerves, allowing for more efficient and improved movement. It is an effective and powerful tool that can provide great results in physical therapy and rehabilitation.
Neurostimulation is an exciting and growing field that has the potential to recast the way we treat neurological conditions. It is a safe and effective way to provide long-term relief to those suffering from neurological issues and can help improve the quality of life for patients and their families.
Neuro Sensorimotor Integrator Therapy is a specialized form of therapy that helps to improve a person’s
- Eye-hand coordination
- Visual reaction time
- Speed and span of recognition
- Visual-vestibular integration
- Oculomotor skills
- Visual motor skills
- Neuro-cognitive skills
Eye-hand coordination is the ability to coordinate the eyes and hands to perform a task, such as catching a ball or using a tool.
Visual reaction time is the ability to respond quickly to visual stimuli, such as a flashing light or a moving object.
Speed and span of recognition are related to the ability to process visual stimuli quickly and accurately.
Visual-vestibular integration is the ability to keep balance and orient oneself in space.
Oculomotor skills are related to the ability to control the movements of the eyes, such as tracking a moving object.
Visual motor skills are related to the ability to coordinate visual input with physical movements.
Finally, Neuro-cognitive skills involve the ability to think, reason, and remember.
Neuro Sensorimotor Therapy helps to develop and refine these skills, improving a person’s overall performance in physical, occupational, and cognitive tasks.
Neurodevelopmental disabilities encompass a range of conditions that affect brain function and development, leading to challenges in various aspects of life. These disabilities typically emerge during early childhood and can persist throughout an individual’s lifespan.
We help and support people who have:
- Autism: This is a condition that can affect the way people communicate and interact with others.
- ADHD/ADD: These are conditions that make it difficult for people to pay attention and control their behavior.
- Cerebral Palsy: This is a condition that affects a person’s movement and muscle control.
- Learning Disabilities: These are challenges that can make it harder for people to learn and understand things.
- Hypoxic Injury: This happens when the brain doesn’t get enough oxygen, which can lead to difficulties in various functions.
- Sensory Processing: This involves difficulties in processing information from the senses, like touch, sound, or sight.
- Motor Stereotypies: These are repetitive movements that some people make involuntarily.
- Expressive Language Disorder: This affects a person’s ability to express themselves and communicate their thoughts and feelings.
We use specialized techniques to help individuals with these conditions improve their skills and abilities so they can live their lives to the fullest.
Are you suffering from migraines, vertigo, dizziness, headaches, neck pain, head pain, brain fog, fatigue or eye strain?
We can help! Manual therapy is beneficial for individuals who have experienced sports-related, vehicle-related, work-related injuries and those suffering from post-concussion symptoms.
At Functional Neurology and Vestibular Rehabilitation Clinic our manual osteopathic therapy uses a combination of massage, joint mobilization, stretching, and other manual techniques to restore normal joint and muscle function.
Our therapists are highly trained and experienced in the management of post-concussion symptoms and have extensive knowledge of the body’s neurological pathways. By taking a holistic approach to your treatment, we can help reduce pain, improve mobility, and restore balance to your body.
