OCNM is trained in the applications of neurological therapies to support and augment care with other healthcare providers.
The human eyes are the window to the brain. The eyes can track a moving target called smooth
pursuits and maintain clear visual acuity while remaining focused on the target. The eyes can move
quickly from target to target called saccades. Each eye movement is controlled by specific areas of
the brain and eye exercises are used to target these areas to stimulate them if they are found to be
Joint Positional Awareness is our ability to understand where our body is in space and in relation to
everything is. Research has shown that after whiplash, individuals have a difficult time with proprioception
when tested with visual feedback from a laser pointer. The goal is to maximum patient spatial awareness
by adding real-time feedback with visual external cues to enhance rehabilitation.
Gaze stability is focusing clearly on a target while moving the head, neck and eyes in unison. Improper synchronization of gaze stability can cause neck tightness, dizziness, blurred vision, and eye fatigue.
Gaze stability exercises improves the way the head, neck and eyes move together, improving your ability
to maintain focus through day to day activities.
The vestibular system helps your brain understand where your head and body is in space as well as when
you are moving or tilting. Your Vestibulo-Ocular reflex (VOR) stabilizes your environment to prevent
nystagmus, square wave jerk, blurriness, nausea and dizziness. The goal of vestibular integration is to
activate neuro-pathways to improve balance, coordination and eye-movements.
Whether you are simply seeking to improve your memory in your personal and professional environments,
or because of the result of a neurological disorder, OCNM is able to implement a variety of memory
exercises in your management plan.
Somato Sensory Evoked Potentials (SSEP) is a unique, low-dose electrical stimulation aimed to activate
different areas of the nervous system when applied to peripheral nerves that can influence eye movement
Fitlight Cognitive Training
OCNM uses Fitlight Trainers as a cognitive training tool to execute a series of planned and unplanned
movements through hand-eye coordination, go-no-go, reaction time, and vision exercises. The recorded
data from this neuro-rehab tool is invaluable in assessing the patients’ recovery and determining a more
accurate prognosis. This innovative reaction training system helps patients improve reaction time, speed,
spatial awareness, cognition and balance. It can be used to help a variety of patients from athletes trying to
optimize brain function to patients suffering from post-concussion syndrome and neurodegeneration.
