OPTIMIZE Brain Rehabilitation Functional Neurology is the application of brain based rehab which integrates the study and application of neuroscience and biomechanics. An alteration to the brain or body due to a biomechanical or neurological insult results in a change in function not just to the brain, but to many areas of the body. These changes result in inappropriate information being sent to the relay centers of the brain. This can cause symptoms such as dizziness, nausea, headaches, changes in muscle tone, difficulty with vision and tracking objects and much more; it’s an ongoing negative feedback mechanism, unless the information being relayed is corrected.
The Vestibular System is responsible for regulating balance, movement, muscle control, posture and eye position when interacting with our immediate surroundings, and is most often one of the major culprits in the sensory mismatch of feedback to our brain. By using sensory, motor and receptor based applications, we can improve pathways to the brain which have become altered due to inappropriate feedback. Treatments are intended to integrate brain functioning and retrain the parts of the nervous system that may be malfunctioning; referred to as neuroplasticity. Treatment is not a one size fits all. Rehabilitation programs are dependent on your exam findings. The longer someone’s brain is adapting to negative changes, the longer it will take to rehabilitate their way out of it. We work with those suffering with: Traumatic Brain Injury, Movement Disorders, Gait Retraining, Facial Nerve Regeneration, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Dysautonomia, Learning Disorders, Sports Performance, Sports Injuries, Peripheral Neuropathies, Balance Issues, Vestibular Dysfunction and Nausea, Peripheral Neuropathies and Acoustic Neuroma Recovery
