Balance Training

See Falltrack.

Botox Injections

Botox used as an injection produces a nerve pulse block. It functions to prevent muscle from overreacting like in contractures. And it usually takes a couple days for the therapeutic effect to be noticeable. Common sites of botox injections are the thigh, arm, face, etc.

EEG - Electroencephalogram

EEG is a system for recording the electric potentials of the brain, which are measured by approximately 21 electrodes attached to the scalp. The record obtained through the electroencephalograph is analyzed by a neurologist to determine the efficiency of the brain's electricity, which can help to find the cause of a migraine, seizure disorder, stroke, or other abnormality.

EMG - Electromyography

EMG is a recording of the electrical activity of the muscles through the use of electrodes. The test is used to diagnose various nerve and muscle disorders, and it also covers a Nerve Conduction Study, which measures the transmission of an impulse along the nerve fiber. Common sites for an EMG study are the hands, arms, feet, legs, etc.

Falltrack

Falltrack is a series of therapeutic sessions done to help retrain the brain and allow balance and gait dysfunction to be restored.

Injection Therapy / Trigger Point Injections

Injection Therapy is the introduction of a medicinal or nutritional solution into the body for various reasons. Trigger Point Injections are a kind of Injection Therapy used to treat painful muscle areas. Normal muscle should contract and relax, but a trigger point is a section of muscle that fails to relax, creating a knotted area. This can cause irritation in the surrounding areas and can radiate to other parts of the body as well. Common sites for injections are occipital, neck, wrists, low back, and shoulders.

Lumbar Puncture

A lumbar puncture is a procedure performed to collect spinal fluid for either diagnostic or therapeutic purposes.

Neurobehavioral Status Exam

This screening exam is used to test the patient's attention and concentration, behavior, calculation, judgment, memory, orientation, reading and writing skills, recollection of personal information, and speech.

Sleep Study - Polysomnography

A sleep study is a monitoring and recording of the normal and abnormal physiological activity of the patient during sleep. It is used to diagnose several types of sleep disorders.

VENG - Video Nystagmography

Using goggles and computer equipment, the VENG test evaluates dizziness or unsteadiness by monitoring eye movements.

VNS - Vagus Nerve Stimulation

VNS is a small medical device implanted under the skin that stimulates the vagus nerve. With this treatment, the number of seizures and/or intensity of seizures can be reduced without the side effects associated with antiepileptic medications.
