Neurological Issues

To determine the optimal nerve impact in neuro problems, we perform a thorough examination of dermatomes, myotomes, and sclerotomes.

Our Integrated Treatment strategy now enables us to provide an organized and sustained improvement to the client's condition, based on the impairment and the client's aim.

Passive exercises, positioning, bed exercises, breathing and circulation exercises, mobilization, mobility aids, strength, coordination, and balance training may all be part of the therapy plan.

We concentrate on the client's complete return of sensation and movement.

Strokes happen when there is a loss of blood flow to the brain. This damages tissues within the brain. Blood pressure fluctuations, obesity, diabetes, clots, arterial sclerosis, and several other lifestyle habits like smoking, etc are known to cause Stroke and Paralysis. Symptoms of a stroke show up in the body parts controlled by the damaged areas of the brain leading to paralysis of certain sections of the body. We have an integrated approach to support the client’s recovery goals. From basic support to activation of the affected area we progress to a total rehabilitation over a period of time. We use an integrated combination of methods CST (Cranio-Sacral Therapy), joint positioning, bracing, Gait retraining, and stabilization to create the desired outcomes. Our integrated Treatment Model gives us both flexibility and control in such complex cases.

Traumatic brain injury usually results from a violent blow or jolt to the head or body. An object that penetrates brain tissue, such as a bullet or shattered piece of skull, also can cause traumatic brain injury. Mild traumatic brain injury may affect your brain cells temporarily. More serious traumatic brain injury can result in bruising, torn tissues, bleeding, and other physical damage to the brain. These injuries can result in long-term complications or death. Depending upon the part of the brain involved and symptoms presented a well-structured treatment plan is made.

Multiple sclerosis is a chronic disease that affects the central nervous system, especially the brain, spinal cord, and optic nerves. Patients usually have a complaint of numbness or weakness. But this condition is detectible only by testing by a qualified Neurologist. In Multiple sclerosis, the immune system attacks the cover of nerve fibers which carries the signal between the brain and the rest of the body. This can lead to a wide range of symptoms throughout the body. At EEZ align we help patients to develop strength and stamina through basic retraining to cope with the changing symptoms. Extensive rehabilitation is planned accordingly. This is one of the conditions where reversal is not possible, so the focus is on the maintenance of functioning.

Parkinson's disease is a brain disorder that leads to shaking, stiffness, and difficulty with walking, balance, and coordination. Tremors are common; people with Parkinson’s disease lose control over many automatic functions of the day. Parkinson's symptoms usually begin gradually and get worse over time. As the disease progresses, people may have difficulty walking and talking. At EEZ align through our integrated treatment model we work with a patient on gait pattern, balance, and coordination. Some patients even need to work on their breathing patterns. This is one of the conditions where reversal is not possible, so the focus is on the maintenance of functioning.

Ataxia is a degenerative disease of the nervous system. Ataxia has symptoms such as slurred speech, stumbling, falling, and lack of coordination. These symptoms are caused by damage to the parts of the brain which control coordination and movement. Through our integrated treatment model, we have helped patients with regaining balance and gaining strength. Some of the issues in Ataxia can be significantly controlled, and some reversed to a great degree. But extensive work becomes critical. We use a large range of techniques and methods to retrain procedures for gait, coordination, and balance.

Numbness and tingling are abnormal sensations that can occur anywhere in your body, but they are often felt in your fingers, hands, feet, arms, or legs. There could be multiple causes. Most of the time it’s due to disc prolapse leading to nerve compression. We use our integrated treatment model to first establish the root cause and then progressively help the recovery of sensation and control. Some of the techniques involve decompressing the nerve through flossing and chiropractic alignment. There is an extensive role for rehabilitation too in these cases.

A prolapsed intervertebral disc is a technical term for what is commonly called a slipped disc. These discs are placed between each of the vertebrae of the spine and pose as shock absorbers. When the fibrous outer part of the disc brakes, it allows the gel-like core to bulge outwards. Patients mostly come with symptoms of numbness and pain. During our integrated treatment, we begin with pain management. Gradually, we use Chiropractic alignment and other techniques to bring stabilization and eventually strength building. Preventing surgery and relapse are our key focus areas.

Sciatica refers to pain that radiates along the path of the sciatic nerve, which branches from your lower back through your hips and buttocks and down each leg. This happens due to the locking of the sciatic nerve in a muscle called piriformis which runs deep inside the buttock. Typically, sciatica affects only one side of your body. Through our Integrated Treatment, we do a variety of pain & mobility management and eventually strength management. Techniques like MFR of affected stiff muscles are done, along with chiropractic alignment to release the muscle and the nerve. Total recovery is possible with disciplined treatment.

Diabetic neuropathy is a type of nerve damage that can occur if you have diabetes. High blood sugar (glucose) can injure nerves throughout your body. Diabetic neuropathy most often damages nerves in your legs and feet. Often patients feel sensation loss in the feet and balance issues. Through our Integrated Treatment model, we work on improving the sensation and lymphatic flow in the legs. It involves active resisted exercises and activation of muscles of lower limbs for long-term management. In some cases, recovery is possible, in others only a control can be achieved.

Scapular winging involves one or both shoulder blades sticking out from the back rather than staying flat. People with winging scapula feel unstable around the shoulder and complain of difficulty in lifting, pushing, and even challenges in brushing teeth. It can happen because of injury nerve compression or nerve damage. We use our integrated treatment model to relieve pain and stiffness and then gradually, strengthen scapular retractors. As the treatment progresses, we work on activation of other weak muscles and spinal alignment to ensure a full recovery.
