When To See A Neurologist

Primary care physicians treat a wide variety of health conditions, from illnesses such as the flu to chronic conditions such as heart disease. However, certain conditions require specialized treatment and care. This is especially true for conditions of the nervous system such as multiple sclerosis, seizures, stroke, Parkinson’s, and migraines.

How Does Neurofeedback Work?

People get sick of taking medicines that cause more harm than good, seeing different doctors, and not getting the relief they need. As a result, neurofeedback training is becoming popular for treating anxiety, depression, concussions, and migraines.

How to Maintain and Improve Balance as You Age

How often do you think about your balance? If you are like most people, the answer to that question is — not until you fall. The ability to balance weakens as a person gets older, and that is usually between the ages 40 and 50. The National Institute on Aging estimates that more than one in three 65-year-old Americans fall every year.

Detecting and Treating Physiologic Brain Lesions

When you scrap your knee, an area with inflamed skin develops. This is called a lesion. However, this can happen to the brain too. Here is a look at what causes brain lesions and how to detect and treat them.

What Is Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy Used For?

The tissues in your body require an adequate supply of oxygen to function. When these tissues sustain an injury, they’d need even more oxygen to survive. As you may already know, your body quickly starts to work and heal itself when you suffer from a wound. But as impressive as this process is, wound healing can sometimes happen slower. This particularly occurs in more severe injuries or issues. Medical treatment that can promote healing time would be extremely beneficial. Fortunately, hyperbaric oxygen therapy (HBOT) offers just that. This treatment can increase the amount of oxygen your blood can carry. Medical doctors use HBOT to treat a wide variety of health conditions.

Benefits of Functional Vision Testing

Functional vision refers to how your entire visual system, including the eyes, brain, and visual pathways, work together to enable you to interact with your environment. It incorporates a variety of essential visual skills. These include, but aren’t limited to:

Concussion Management and Recovery

If you have ever been involved in an accident or suffered an injury affecting your head, you may have been diagnosed with a concussion. A concussion is considered to be a mild traumatic brain injury (TBI), a type of injury that is caused by a bump, blow, or jolt to the head that disrupts the normal function of the brain. In mild TBI’s, the disruption to the way that the brain works is only temporary, and after a brief period of rest and rehabilitation, should return to normal.

What’s Involved in Brain Mapping?

In the past, researchers intending to study the brain’s functioning injected dyes inside the brain, then established the connections therein post-mortem. The method was slow, time-consuming, and expensive. But the evolution of technology and science now allows scientists and doctors to study a living brain. They can decipher the flow of information inside the brain as it is being processed. The study of brain activity is called brain mapping.

Anxiety/Depression and Effect on Brain and Recovery

Anxiety and depression are two of the most commonly diagnosed types of mental health disorder, and it’s estimated that more than 264 million people worldwide live with depression. They can be experienced individually, but they often occur at the same time. They also have many symptoms in common.
