If you have not been in for a while, please consider these questions and give us a call to understand all the new therapies and testing we have added in 2021. 

Do you have any pain chronic (for weeks) or acute (or recent)?

If so is your pain well defined meaning certain movements cause an increase or you can pinpoint where the pain is or coming from? Or is the pain not defined/or diffused (spread out) and may increase with eating/drinking? This may be coming from internal organ tissue.

Have you ever had head injuries, whether it is from sports or other injuries?                                                                                                                                            

Old head injuries (Head forces, concussions, physical sports activities) can lead to visual issues, vertigo/balance issues.

 Do you have regular restrictions and/or pain with movements in your:                                                                                                                                                       

Neck   mid back    low back?

Do you have regular restrictions and/or pain with movements around your:                                                                                                                                                           

Right shoulder    Left shoulder    Right elbow    Left elbow    Right wrist    Left wrist   
   Right hip     Left hip      Right knee     Left knee     Right ankle/foot     Left ankle/foot?

Do you have vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) dysfunctions?

VOR issues:  vertigo, visual issues with head movements, riding on roller coasters/cars/elevators motions cause your head to feel abnormal or dizzy.

Is your vision getting worse?  Not just 20/20 standing still looking at something not moving, but when you are moving or the target is moving.

Symptoms of visual issues that can cause neck/back pain, joint pain, balance issues are :

headaches with reading/computer use,  fluorescent lighting sensitivity, dry eyes, eye strain, dizziness with moving objects, sound sensitivity(always telling others to turn volume down), need for glasses with exposure sun, frequent blurry eye(s).

We now offer four primary visual components:                                                                                               

1 Visual Resolution 2 Depth judgment 3 Eye Movements 4 Peripheral Awareness.

When is the last time you thought about your Breathing?

Poor breathing can cause you to have sleep apnea, snore, yawn, wake up with dry mouth, gasp for breath at times or feel shortness of breath.  We now offer breathing training.

Have you noticed any areas of decreased skin sensation somewhere on your body? Or have you become clumsy or starting to trip more often?

Most of your old injuries, surgeries, will cause damage to your SENSATION patterns.  This becomes a big problem when your brain cannot feel one of your feet compared to the other.  This can lead to stiff legs and low back pain. Surgeries/scars/Fractures can all affect your sensory maps throughout your body.  

Do you have swelling around any joints, varicose veins, neuropathy symptoms?  You may be interested in lymphatic drainage techniques you can do yourself. We can instruct you how to improve your lymphatic flow at home.

Do you have any jaw issues (headaches with chewing, pain with chewing, clicking jaw movements)? TMJ muscles exercises have helped most people.

Our vision is for our patients to SEE WELL, BALANCE WELL, AND MOVE WELL.  

We understand many of you are still working from home.  We have made an at home program with activities you can do at home to improve your brain and nervous system.  Call us (651) 778-0080 and we can better explain how you can start working on your health from home.
