Neurodegenerative disease is a broad term used to describe a group of conditions that mainly target the neurons in the brain, below are a list of some of the more common neurodegenerative diseases:
Our rehabilitation program is designed with two goals
To slow down the progression of the degenerative disease process
To work in collaboration with your other health care providers
Vision Therapy is a commonly used method to improve the precision of ocular movements. Practical examples of dysfunctional eye movements can appear as double and/or blurry vision, difficulty concentrating, difficulty reading, eye strain and headaches.
Ear Insufflation is a modern procedure involving gently puffing air into the ear canal. The purpose of this technique is to affect the Trigeminal nerve (CN V). As it plays a crucial role in facial/ scalp sensation and proper jaw function.
After a comprehensive examination, our doctors will create a plan specific to your needs. Below are a few of the tools/ techniques we would be using on your case.
Photobiomodulation (PBM) is a form of non-invasive light therapy using red and/ or near-infrared light. PBM has extensive research showing its effectiveness for reducing inflammation, immunomodulation, tissue repair and increased production of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP).
Repetitive Peripheral Somatosensory Stimulus
Repetitive Peripheral Somatosensory Stimulus (RPSS) is a non-invasive treatment modality that involves the application of a mild electrical impulse to the skin. RPSS has a wide array of uses, in our rehabilitation program it is commonly used to directly treat conditions such as vertigo or migraines/ headaches.
Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation
Transcutaneous Vagus Nerve Stimulation (TVNS) involves application of mild electrical impulse to the outer ear in order to stimulate the Vagus nerve. TVNS has been shown to successfully treat conditions such as cluster headaches, migraines, epilepsy, trigeminal pain, mTBI, irritable bowel disease and many others.
