The convergence of electromagnetic fields can increase or decrease activity in specific spots of the brain to normalize brain function and improve neuropsychological symptoms from depression and anxiety to cognitive impairments years after receiving concussions. This non-invasive and drug-free treatment option has also been shown to help with neuropathic pain, improve movement after stroke, and help decrease tinnitus. Research on this cutting edge technology is being published across the globe with promising results on regulating the central and peripheral nervous system.
Neurofeedback uses brainwave activity with auditory and/or visual feedback to provide fun and relaxing training for the brain to improve mood regulation and neuronal output in real time. Research has shown that neurofeedback can improve cognition, decrease depression and anxiety, and improve focus and concentration.
The gammaCore device by Electrocore provides vagal nerve stimulation to activate your parasympathetic “rest and digest” nervous system. The Vagus nerve, also referred to as cranial nerve 10, originates in the brainstem and terminates in the large intestines. Activation of this nerve can influence heart rate, mood, blood flow, and gut function. gammaCore is FDA approved to treat migraines and certain types of headaches, and is often used in tandem with orthostatic challenges to improve symptoms related to dysautonomia.
Breathing concentrated oxygen while under pressure allows for accelerated healing and suppression of inflammation. Treatment sessions of HBOT are often referred to as "dives" because of the use of HBOT to help scuba divers recover from pressure change related illness, but now HBOT is being used to help athletes muscles heal faster, plastic surgeons to decrease the size of scar formation on their surgical patients, and for people of all ages to improve their brain health. Normally, oxygen has to attach to your red blood cells to travel through your body and fuel healing, but by applying pressure the oxygen can "dissolve" into the liquid portions of your blood to better permeate the regions of your brain and body that need better circulation and faster healing.
Biofeedback assisted by virtual reality helps to provide safe ways of dealing with emotionally triggering stimulation, like driving after a car accident, while providing feedback to regulate heart rate and breath rhythm which ultimately leads to improved connectivity between the gray and white matter of the brain.
Infrared light can reduce swelling, increase blood flow, and decrease inflammation to protect against cell death and modulate the brain's immune system. By using infrared lasers transcranially, we can encourage improved circulation and blood flow to the specific areas of your brain that showed signs of dysfunction on your diagnostic testing.
The vestibular system helps to perceive movement and maintain balance and rehabilitation to this system can relieve symptoms of dizziness while reducing fall risk. The vestibular system is closely related to the autonomic nervous system since both originate in the brainstem. Improved vestibular function can help reduce dizziness and balance challenges, as well as encourage better perception of the environment possibly leading to decreased anxiety and improved awareness.
Before you were born, your eyes budded off that same bit of tissue that became your brain. Eye movements can be used to improve function between different regions of your brain and brainstem. Often referred to as oculomotor exercises or orthoptic exercises, customized videos can be provided in office and for home care.
Balance is the combination of three systems: visual from the eyes, vestibular via the inner ear and brainstem, and proprioception which is provided by receptors in your muscles and joints and processed in the cerebrum and cerebellum. Utilizing weight shifting technologies and gamification helps improve stability and balance in a fun and safe way.
After stimulating the brain passively, active cognitive training can be helpful to strengthen neural connections and practice using new skills to improve memory and concentration. In office and home options are available to continue to strengthen attention, memory, processing, and executive function.
The Fisher Wallace device can restore balance to the brain's electrical patterns to provide relief from anxiety, insomnia, and depression.
