Relieve Sensory Overload With Sensory Integration Therapy In Denver

Sensory processing is the ability to interpret and respond to the various stimuli we take in through the five senses on any given day. Many people, especially children, have trouble with any or all stages of sensory processing which leads to difficulty coping in their everyday lives. Experts refer to this difficulty as “sensory processing disorder.” As more and more research is performed on psychological and physiological components of sensory processing, professionals have found that highly-specific therapy can help alleviate the symptoms and improve the quality of life for those who struggle with sensory processing. Let’s discuss what sensory integration in Denver looks like at McWhorter CNR.

Understanding Sensory Processing Disorder

When it comes down to it, sensory processing disorder is simply an inability to effectively interpret and respond to the various stimuli that can be taken in through the five senses. While the definition is quite simple, though, the disorder is far from it. Consider where you are as you read this: you’re visually taking in the computer or phone screen with the light and the colors and the text. You can feel the mouse or the mobile device that’s in your hand. There’s likely background noise that you’re aware of. Maybe a smell of the space you’re in. There’s a lot going on. If you don’t have trouble with sensory processing, that background noise is no big deal. You’re aware of the things that are in your hands and in use right this moment, but you’re not bothered by the feeling of the clothes on your skin, your body in the chair, or any other physical sensation.

This is where you and an individual who struggles with sensory processing differ. This is also what makes sensory processing disorder such a debilitating problem for many patients.

This sensory overload is what sensory integration therapy targets, helping patients cope with the abundance of stimuli that we’re exposed to at any given time.

How Does Sensory Integration Therapy Work?

The premise of sensory integration therapy in Denver is to help patients develop coping skills so that the exposure to various stimuli doesn’t become overwhelming. This is done by repeated and controlled exposure of stimuli through one or more of the senses. The theory is no more complicated than “practice makes perfect.” In a controlled environment, patients are able to more easily adjust to the onset of stimuli and improve their sensory processing abilities.

At McWhorter CNR, we leverage a variety of different tools to help patients who experience any level of sensory processing difficulty take control of their symptoms. These tools include:

  • Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy - There is still research being done on the effectiveness of hyperbaric oxygen therapy for the treatment of sensory issues, but the theory is that HBOT will lead to an increase in cerebral perfusion.
  • Near-Infrared Light Therapy - Studies done in patients with autism showed a statistically significant reduction in irritability when using low-level laser therapy over the course of a four week period.
  • Neurofeedback - Neurofeedback showed a 26% average decrease in total ATEC-rated autism symptoms. The studies also featured qualitative data from parents who noted a significant decrease in anxiety and tantrums with the support of neurofeedback therapy.

At McWhorter CNR, every treatment protocol is customized to the patient. Sensory integration therapy is no exception as we strive to find the combination of therapeutic solutions that will support the patient in the long-term.

The Benefits Of Sensory Integration Therapy In Denver

As we’ve noted earlier, sensory issues can be especially debilitating considering every single thing we do comes with an abundance of stimuli for our senses. Sensory integration therapy can help patients develop the coping skills they may lack to better handle both expected and unexpected sensory overload. All of this can lead to a better quality of life for the patient and their families.

Very knowledgeable and caring staff. My wife and I are from Pennsylvania and she has been struggling with MDDS dizziness/nausea since 2019. After coming up empty in the PA market we found Dr McWhorter’s center in Colorado and my wife has definitely seen progress in only 2-weeks that she hasn’t seen in 4yrs. Entire staff is accommodating to questions and willing to help. Thank you.


The team at McWhorter CNR is a very professional group; they made sure I had the best care possible. Besides being professional, they are also a kind and caring bunch; I felt like family while working on my therapy!

So accommodating and knowledgeable. Best help! I’ve had unbelievable results since my spinal tumor removal. This rehab plan has been the most helpful over the last 4 years. Thank you Dr. McWhorter.


Started seeing Dr Mchworter for 3 years now and he is the best in his field. His knowledge of the brain is incredible. I was unaware of some of the issues that were lingering from a few old concussions and he helped correct them and got me back competition ready quickly. I highly recommend him if you have had any concussions and or want to improve your athletic performance.
