One of the keys to successful neurological rehabilitation is layering different therapies. While one therapy may be beneficial it is usually much better to integrate two or more together. Many places may utilize a form of vision (eye movement) or balance therapy. Unfortunately many patients continue to struggle because the care is not individualized to their needs and they are often pushed beyond their limits.

Evaluating balance and eye movements are two of the best ways to evaluate the brain. They provide a window into the health of the brain in Meridian ID.

When either one of these are off it means the brain is not as healthy as it should be. This can be the result of Stroke, Concussion, TBI, Dizziness, Vertigo, Dementia, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and many other things that negatively impact brain health.

Balance Therapy

Our balance is composed of information that comes into our brain from what we see, hear, feel, and reflexively sense. When one of these is impacted it can prevent you from having the best balance possible. Normally the two that have the biggest impact are what you see and reflexively sense. If your eyes are receiving bad information you will not have as good of balance as you should.

Reflexive sense is due to the vestibular system. It is most commonly talked about in regards to the inner ear but is much more complex than that as it is at the core of our balance. Any time you move or turn the vestibular system relays that information to your brain to allow you to be stable and in control. If there is damage to this system it can create a wide variety of symptoms ranging from dizziness, neck pain, headaches, nausea, anxiety, poor coordination, and feeling off balance.

The vestibular system is routinely impacted with many neurological based conditions and symptoms. Unfortunately, it is often ignored and leads to patients feeling stuck and not progressing in the best way possible.

Vision Therapy

Vision therapy is much different than making sure you need a prescription or not. I want you to think about shooting a gun using a scope. The job of the eye doctor is to make sure you have the best scope possible on the gun. Unfortunately you can have the best scope in the world but if the person holding the gun has unsteady hands it does not matter. This is exactly what happens with oculomotor dysfunction. The brain is unable to coordinate eye movements. Many symptoms occur from dizziness, headaches, neck pain, fatigue, poor memory, and even ADHD symptoms.

Eye movements are commonly impacted when the brain isn’t as healthy. The eyes are a window to the brain and can be used to identify areas that are not working as well as they should.

As customized oculomotor exercises are used a multitude of symptoms improve as the brain is functioning better.

Wow were my eyes opened by Dr. Z. I was suffering from daily migraines, neck, back, shoulder, hip pain, vision and hearing problems, and the list goes on. Dr. Z saved my life. No joke. He is super meticulous and very passionate about his work. He is very smart and forward thinking and researches all the time. He genuinely cares about his patients.

“Dr. Spencer Zimmerman is phenomenal! In January I found out I have Lyme disease and along with that discovery, I found out that most traditional Doctors won’t/can’t help treat Lyme disease patients due to FDA restrictions. My only option appeared to be a Lyme specialist, which was going to cost enormous amounts of money because insurance doesn’t cover Lyme specialists. I felt hopeless. And that’s when I had the amazing fortune to come across Dr. Spencer Zimmerman. He gave me the hope I so desperately needed. He is very knowledgeable in regards to traditional medicine, but also homeopathic care as well.
