gyrostim treatment for mdds

If you are one of the few people who’ve suffered from the symptoms of Mal de Debarquement Syndrome, or MDDS, you know how challenging it can be to find a treatment option that works to actually resolve your symptoms. MDDS is an incredibly rare disorder. Giving patients an uncontrollable sense of rocking or movement, even when standing on solid ground, MDDS is especially frustrating because the stimulus is often unknown and the symptoms can last for an extensive period of time. There are only a handful of people in the world who can treat Mal de Debarquement Syndrome and these experts have tested a number of different approaches to helping their patients find relief. While there are a select few treatments that have shown results in patients with MDDS, one of the lesser known and significantly harder to find treatment options is GyroStim.

GyroStim is a cutting-edge treatment that, while it has been around for quite some time, is still a relatively new age concept for many practitioners. McWhorter CNR is one of the few providers in the country who can offer GyroStim therapy as a treatment for MDDS. Let’s discuss some of the key benefits of GyroStim for MDDS treatment.

How Does GyroStim Treat MDDS?

GyroStim is a visual stimulator that rotates across both axes. It’s almost like an amusement park ride, rotating across the pitch and yaw axes to stimulate the vestibular system and boost cognitive functioning. As your comfort level with the treatment increases, a laser element will be incorporated and you’ll be tasked with pointing a light beam at targets as they enter your field of vision.

Each “run,” or stretch of rotations only lasts about 30 to 60 seconds. While studies on the most effective applications of GyroStim for MDDS are still being performed, it’s thought that multiple, short stretches of treatment in the machine over a condensed period of time is the best way to reap the benefits of this innovative technology.

Each patient’s experience with MDDS is unique. In some cases, the symptoms and their severity can vary from non-existent to debilitating in a matter of hours. For others, the symptoms are constant and persistent, never truly letting up. While MDDS is still being researched so that practitioners who treat the disorder can better understand what is actually going on with the body, there is enough literature out there to guide MDDS treatment efforts with GyroStim and other vestibular and neurological therapies.

What MDDS Patients Are Saying About GyroStim

Formal medical research is lengthy, so as data is being collected and analyzed, the next best thing is to hear what MDDS patients who’ve tried GyroStim as a treatment have to say about their experience and symptom relief. A few stats truly speak to the effectiveness of GyroStim as a treatment for MDDS. Some patients who’ve undergone GyroStim therapy have shown:

  • Up to 80% decrease in brain fog and balance issues
  • Better movement and functionality of limbs
  • Decreased gravitational pull and feelings of movement
  • Elimination of all MDDS symptoms

All of this can be achieved through different, strategic use of the GyroStim machine. By stimulating the vestibular system and improving cognitive function, patients around the world are able to find relief from their symptoms of MDDS.
