What conditions can neurological rehabilitation treat?
Injuries, infections, structural defects, degenerative diseases, tumors, circulatory system disorders, and brainwave imbalances can all contribute to nervous system damage. Some of the top conditions that neurological rehabilitation can treat include:
- Physical trauma, such as a TBI, concussion, or spinal cord injury
- Neuromuscular or structural disorders, such as neuropathy, vertigo, or MDDS
- Degenerative diseases, such as Alzheimer’s or ALS
Types of neurological rehab treatments
Often, to effectively treat a neurological condition you will need to take a multi-faceted approach. It’s unlikely that just one treatment will provide you with the relief you need. Here at McWhorter CNR, we offer Neurofeedback, GyroStim therapy, DynaVision, and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy to help better manage brain-based conditions.
Neurofeedback is an all-natural, drug-free type of brain training that uses EEG technology to provide real-time feedback about the state of your brain. Neurofeedback therapy uses positive reinforcement to address injuries and imbalances in the brain. More specifically, it’s used to treat TBIs, concussions, and many mental health disorders.
Many people with neurological conditions have been found to produce irregular brainwaves. Neurofeedback helps your brain form new neural connections, improve self-regulation, and produce optimal brainwave patterns.
GyroStim is a cutting-edge brain training technology that helps improve processing and reaction times, balance, and overall cognitive performance. During a GyroStim treatment session, you’re seated in a multi-axis, computer-controlled rotating chair.
As the chair rotates you through twists, turns, and somersaults, you will be surrounded by laser targets. The goal is to hit as many targets as you can with a laser of your own as they come in and out of your vision field.
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy
Hyperbaric oxygen therapy, or HBOT for short, is a treatment modality that uses high levels of oxygen to heal your body, reduce inflammation, and promote the production of new stem cells. This top-of-the-line treatment uses 100% pure oxygen and a pressurized chamber to deliver oxygen-rich blood to your body’s tissue, muscle, joints, and cerebral fluid.
DynaVision is a vestibular therapy that can be particularly effective in treating concussions and TBIs. As a standard neurological rehabilitation treatment, it works to improve gross motor skills, response times, and neurocognitive test levels.
The way it works is quite simple. Light switches are arranged in rings and mounted on a wall. You’ll then stand in front of the switches and try to hit the switch the lights up as fast as you can. This helps improve peripheral visual awareness, visual-motor coordination, and reaction times after your brain has sustained injury.
