Often our patients come to Neurohealth Services for help when they have a diagnosis such as post-concussion syndrome, labyrinthitis, or dysautonomia and have not been able to find relief elsewhere. But what if you’re experiencing symptoms and don’t know what is causing them? Today we’re sharing some of the most common neurological symptoms we treat and how we are able to diagnose them and pinpoint areas of the brain in need of treatment.
Your vestibular system, which includes the inner ears and areas of your brain, is a complex network that processes information about body and head position, spatial awareness, balance, eye movement, and posture. Dysfunction of the vestibular system can cause dizziness, vertigo, and a variety of other symptoms, and may have numerous causes. At NeuroHealth, we use innovative diagnostic procedures to find out what’s causing your symptoms. We then develop a progressive treatment plan to improve vestibular system function and to help you feel well again.
Light sensitivity, intermittent blurring, and double vision can all be signs of ongoing neurological dysfunction caused by immune disorders, infections, and head injuries. Neurohealth’s non-invasive diagnostics help us gain a complete picture of your health and the cause (or causes) of your symptoms.
One important thing to remember is that there is a difference between headaches and migraines. While migraines may include headaches, they also include a range of symptoms such as digestive and visual disturbances and sensitivity to light and sound. Whether you’re experiencing persistent headaches or the full range of symptoms caused by migraines, Neurohealth Services can pinpoint the cause in order to provide the most effective treatment possible.
Problems with Memory and Concentration; Brain Fog
If you’re feeling a general fogginess or perhaps your memory isn’t what it used to be, there’s often a treatable root cause that could be anything from long-haul COVID to dysfunctions of the vestibular (inner ear) system. We use sophisticated diagnostic tools to pinpoint the underlying causes of your symptoms in order to develop a treatment plan customized for you.
You might have a common and treatable neurological condition if you’re experiencing uncontrollable, unusual, or repetitive twitches or movements. Dystonia describes a variety of functional movement disorders with neurological origins. These involuntary and often painful muscle contractions can occur in the eyelids, face, mouth, jaw, neck, vocal cords, arms, hands, legs, and feet. These are often misdiagnosed as muscle strains, which can be frustrating when the medical treatments have no impact. NeuroHealth uses a variety of diagnostic procedures to evaluate and manage dystonia symptoms.
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms and you’ve been unable to get a diagnosis or effective relief elsewhere, talk to Neurohealth Services about a comprehensive Discovery Day evaluation to assess your brain health and recommend a tailored treatment plan.
Our office has state-of-the-art technology to evaluate the oculomotor system. We use the RightEye system which objectively measures different facets of ocular function. The test is very simple: you sit and look at a computer with dots moving around the screen and the vision-tracking software will map out your eye movements and give you objective data as to how functional or dysfunctional your eye movements are. The test takes less than seven minutes and can be administered anytime.
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms and you’ve been unable to get a diagnosis or effective relief elsewhere, schedule a free 10-minute consultation to discuss your condition and options for treatment. Call (317) 848-6000 or contact us today.
