Concussion Recovery Program
Balance testing with Computerized Dynamic Posturography to provide a detailed assessment of a patient’s stability pre- or post-concussion.
An oculomotor (eye movement) assessment is an important part of the examination at ChiroPro Performance Center. Impaired eye movements have been identified as a common post-concussion problem and can lead to symptoms such as dizziness, headaches, and difficulty reading or using a computer. We use infrared goggle technology and video nystagmography (VNG) to get an objective measurement of oculomotor function.
The Neuro Sensorimotor Integrator or NSI, is designed for, and available only to Functional Neurologists. Using a 50 inch HD TV and touch screen, the NSI is designed to offer a host of therapy procedures to a wide range of patients requiring visual or neuro therapy following: Traumatic brain injury/Concussion, Whiplash Injuries, Automobile accidents, Neurological Disorders, Vestibular and Balance Disorders and Spinal Cord Injury.
The ImPACT test can be used to assess neurocognitive function as part of the overall concussion evaluation and management process. It can help in establishing individual baselines and in tracking the recovery of cognitive processes following a concussion.
The FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.
The FMS generates the Functional Movement Screen Score, which is used to target problems and track progress. This scoring system is directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns.
Exercise professionals monitor the FMS score to track progress and to identify those exercises that will be most effective to restore proper movement and build strength in each individual.
