“In a very short time we started to see very big improvements…things like smell better, hear better, function better.”
“I see her energy improving because she’s not going through so many lows and highs. She’s steadying out, and it’s not because of her medicine, because that has not changed.”
Parkinson’s Disease can be a devastating diagnosis for individuals and their loved ones. Difficulties with instability, tremors, stiffness, slowing of movement, sleep issues, depression and other symptoms can prevent the individual from enjoying a decent quality of life.
Carolyn, an 81 year old dealing with Parkinson’s for 16 years was struggling with balance, walking without assistance, forgetfulness and some memory lapses. Most of all, she feared falling and losing her independence. Before Carolyn came to Cerebrum, putting on her socks and shoes each morning took on average 15 minutes or more. By the end of her first week of treatment, she was able to put on her socks and shoes in less than 3 minutes.
Below are some of the treatment plans that may be implemented with Parkinson’s Disease patients who seek treatment at Cerebrum Health Centers:
Physical Exam combined with memory tests
An evaluation of the eyes and their ability to track and focus
Balance and posture testing
Targeted brain stimulation
Equilibrium and balance improvement
Our patented Off Vertical Axis Rotational Device (OVARD)
Low dose electrical stimulation to “wake up” affected nerves
Custom visual exercises, physical therapy and speech therapy
There may not be a cure for Parkinson’s, but Cerebrum uses leading edge technology and customized care to improve symptoms that make life more difficult for our patients. Through our innovative processes, we help repair the brain by encouraging targeted activity in the affected areas to restore or enhance function. We work together to maximize quality of life for our patients dealing with symptoms including instability, tremors, stiffness, slowing movement, sleep issues or depression.
We do this with neurological and physical exams, and in-office diagnostic testing equipment to pinpoint functional or cognitive brain impairments in Parkinson’s patients. We then design an individualized care program that addresses each patient’s specific challenges. Throughout our immersive treatment program, Cerebrum continuously measures progress and refines treatment regimens based on feedback and patient progress to ensure we can help improve functionality as much as possible.
