Functional Assessment

In order to find out cause, not just symptom, brain and body functions are evaluated. 

Bedside, orthopedic & neurological

Bedside exam is an entrance of our examination. Based on findings, further examinations are performed. 

Biomechanical evaluation

Basic movement, range of motion, fluidity, compensation are measured. Findings are evaluated to find causes of issue, which may not be associated with symptoms. This is helpful to resolve chronic pain or prevent injuries, enhance sports performance. For instance, assessing gait can give us valuable information about brain and body. Asymmetries, step lengths, loading phase, ROMs are essential information about you. 

Balance, COG, Limits of Stability

Many neurological and musculoskeletal disorders are associated with balance. In order to maintain balance, brain and body need to be functioning appropriately. Vestibular, vision, proprioception should be integrated. Therefore, evaluating balance is essential to assess brain and body functions. Computerized dynamic posturography clearly shows objective data of balance. Balance is important not only to predict risk of falls but also to measure baseline for sports performance. 

Ocular movement

Not only dizziness and other balance disorder but also many neurological disorders are associated with ocular movement. Video Frenzel Google are used to measure ocular movement. 

Interactive Metronome

IM is a research-based training program that helps children and adults improve attention, motor skills, balance, coordination, memory and cognitive function. It has been reported that IM can help a wide variety of conditions such as mild traumatic brain injury, ADHD, autism, cerebral palsy, dyslexia, dyspraxia, learning disability, stuttering, sensory processing disorder, Parkinson’s, post-stroke, concussion, sports performance

Y-balance and FMS

Y balance test is a dynamic test performed in single-leg stance that requires strength, flexibility, core control and proprioception. It has been used to assess physical performance, identify chronic ankle and ACL instability , and identify athletes at greater risk for lower extremity injury. Researchers have suggested including these tests in screening for activity participation. Asymmetry may indicate following: joint mobility dysfunction, stability motor control dysfunction, vestibular dysfunction, proprioceptive dysfunction and/or abnormal somatosensory input. It is known that appropriate rehabilitation allows patients to improve their core strength and performance resulting in restoring proper motor control and preventing injuries. 

Primitive reflexes

Primitive reflexes, seen in newborn baby, should be integrated as one grows. However, often time, primitive reflexes are seen in people with neruological issues, not only developmental issues but also concussion.
