Your sensorimotor system is what enables the body to understand and respond to the world around you. The speed at which your brain can receive sensory information, interpret that information and respond with motor, verbal, or cognitive output is constantly in flux based on the health of your sensorimotor system. GyroStim is a one-of-a-kind training system that challenges the functionality of your sensorimotor system to help you perform better. McWhorter CNR is a leading provider of GyroStim in Denver and it has a lot to offer you.
What Is GyroStim?
When the daughter of the GyroStim inventor, Kevin Maher, was prescribed a vestibular training routine that included hundreds of chair spins, log rolls, and somersaults on a daily basis to support her therapies for spastic quadriplegia cerebral palsy, Maher thought to himself: "There has to be a better way." Leveraging 25 years of experience in robotics engineering, Maher developed a rotating chair that could spin on both axes.
Initially, GyroStim provided passive vestibular stimulation. Simply put, there was no interaction in the original design of the GyroStim. After seeing the results from the original design, Maher hypothesized that an additional interactive element would add benefits to the GyroStim therapy experience. These additions to the GyroStim model transformed the experience from exclusively providing vestibular stimulation, to a full-fledged performance enhancement therapy that targets the sensorimotor system. Today, the chair is paired with a laser-targeted program that collects data to refine the training protocol that challenges function and performance.
Dr. Jeff McWhorter provides GyroStim in Denver to patients with all kinds of backgrounds. From athletics to injuries and everything in between, this training tool has proven to be highly beneficial across a wide number of symptoms and wellness goals.
How Does GyroStim With McWhorter CNR Work?
GyroStim is unique in its facilitation of a dynamic environment for brain training that synchronizes and improves the brain’s cognitive processing and reaction time. When you do GyroStim in Denver at McWhorter CNR, you’ll start slow - at or below your current processing rate. Patients will not invert immediately so as to prevent over-stimulation.
While these rotations, or runs, are happening, you’ll use a laser to hit targets as they come into your field of vision. The GyroStim will collect this data and adapt to your performance level to continuously challenge you as your skill level improves. A typical GyroStim session at our Denver office will last about 30 minutes total, with runs lasting 30-60 seconds each time.
Who Should Try GyroStim?
GyroStim can come into play in a number of different circumstances. From injury recovery to performance enhancement, this innovative training challenges your sensorimotor system to achieve results.
GyroStim + Injury Recovery
If you’ve experienced a concussion, traumatic brain injury or another neurological condition and are struggling through the recovery process, you may want to consider looking into GyroStim in Denver. This training solution is highly beneficial for those who need the support of vestibular stimulation that simultaneously challenges the sensorimotor system to regain lost function that occurred as a result of an injury.
GyroStim + Performance Enhancement
In addition to treating chronic symptoms and supporting recovery efforts, GyroStim is also a popular method for improving athletic performance. The focus of this therapy is to improve processing and reaction time. With both of those elements being essential to performance, this concentrated focus on pushing mental and physical barriers can take the athletic ability to the next level in no time. Over the years, Dr. McWhorter has used GyroStim in his treatment of professional athletes involved in UFC, NBA, NFL, and NHL. GyroStim has also proven highly beneficial for amateur athletes across all types of sports, including gymnastics, hockey, and football. This treatment plays a key role in taking your game to the next level.
