Functional Neurotherapy

Concussion, Parkinson’s, stroke, vertigo, balance disorders, and children with learning disabilities all have been shown to improve with specific Neurotherapy treatments. At PRA we utilize a proprietary approach using simple exercises and treatments to communicate and regulate new patterns to the nervous system in order to create synergy in the brain.

There is some truth to the left-side of the brain being used for mathematical calculations, reading, and auditory memory, and right-side being more relating to physical space, body language, awareness, and social skills. While the Cortex does take care of cognitive processes, we must respect how the system functions with daily tasks; riding a bike, playing basketball, or listening to talk radio. Day-to-day activities run through our brain stem, eyes, and inner ears in what’s call the Vestibular System. To create proper motor function our system works in conjunction with the Cortex and Spinal Cord.

Pathways in the Brain Stem are the only route for information coming in or out, very much like in a relay system. When undergoing neural rehabilitation, we use a small range of physical and visual sensory exercises to excite or inhibit new or different relay pathways in the brain to promote growth and healing. This includes eye movements, head movements, proprioception, and ELDOA. Functional Neurotherapy was created from ELDOA methods, techniques of proprioception led by Guy Voyer combined with vestibular training.

Vestibular Therapy

Vestibular rehabilitation is an exercise based program involving manual techniques as well to promote central nervous system compensation for inner ear deficits. Vestibular rehabilitation can provide treatment for a variety of conditions including benign paroxysmal positional vertigo (BPPV) as well as bilateral or unilateral vestibular hypo function. Vestibular rehabilitation can help with acute or chronic dysfunction. An individualized plan will be created for each patient involving, posture, balance, gait, as well as specific head, body, and eye exercises to retrain the brain to recognize signals from the vestibular system and process them correctly

C3 Logix Baseline Examination

Please Note: Patients who have yet to be diagnosed, suspected, or have been diagnosed with a concussion may have some of the following changes and/or symptoms:
  • vision
  • fogginess
  • orientation
  • inability to maintain balance
  • dizziness
  • light sensitivity
  • headache
  • nausea
  • car sick
  • inability to pay attention
Among a multitude of other possible symptomatology. These are most common.
THESE CHANGES USUALLY WILL NOT BE EVIDENT ON ANY MRI OR CT SCAN OF THE BRAIN!

It is vital to establish a subjective and objective baseline for assessment as these neurological problems can get worse immediately or in later years of life contributing to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s, Dystonia, Parkinson’s, Dementia, and Cerebellar Ataxia.

Chronic Migraines have also been attributed to concussion.

The technology we provide is of the highest caliber for diagnostic baseline and management purposes.

C3 Logix is also utilized for performance enhancement and can track improvements in balance, visual tracking, and reaction time.

Other facilities who utilize this technology: Cleveland Clinic, Plasticity Brain Centers, Notre Dame, Brigham Young University, University of Nevada at Las Vegas, Allegheny Health Network, Texas Christian University, Kansas State University, Texas A&M University, Kansas University.

Brainmaster Neurobiofeedback

Neurofeedback is a non-invasive method of direct brain function training. It is also a type of biofeedback and is therefore, also called EEG Biofeedback. It uses the electrodes (which act like tiny microphones) placed on the client’s scalp to record and amplify the EEG, or brainwaves and control auditory, visual, and/or tactile feedback which allows learning to take place.
