Using the latest in diagnostic technology, we consider each component of a patient’s nervous system in isolation -- vision, proprioception, autonomic, etc. and how they integrate together.
This extra step often leads to an improvement in symptoms.
Develop a customized treatment program informed by these findings. Our approach takes advantage of the central nervous system’s ability to be plastic, to change constructively over time. This allows us to improve brain function through non-invasive, non-pharmacological means.
Frequently re-assess and adapt as needed to ensure the best results. Our goal is to work with our patients to rehabilitate elements of the underlying dysfunction contributing to their symptoms to either eradicate the errors in movement, or at least improve a patient’s quality of life.
