Description

In this module we will elaborate on the functional neurological consequences of concussion.  Often times, these involve imbalance of cortical and brain stem centers, ultimately effecting the vestibular system, which leads to neurovascular consequences and autonomic imbalance.  In this session we will therefore review various regions in the cortex, cerebellum, brain stem, and vestibular system, to show how the neurologic integration is linked.  Also, we will focus on the integration of eye muscles and intrinsic spinal musculature- which are linked thru the vestibular apparatus.  In the practical aspect we will cover diagnostic testing to discover any imbalance in the system, and present various ways in which these may be resolved using a variety of functional neurologic applications. Amongst topics covered:

  • Chronic traumatic encephalopathy
  • Head pain-understanding cortical integration and descending inhibition
  • Central sensitization and brain fog
  • Posture and visual integration
  • Diagnostic testing, cranial nerve screening
  • Testing autonomic concomitants- concentration, focus, fatigue, irritability, nausea
  • Treatment strategies such as photobiomodulation, eye exercises, adjustments, breathing exercises
  • Nutritional advice
