Computerized Dynamic Posturography (CDP)
The Computerized Dynamic Posturography (CDP) is a virtual reality system used to diagnose your balance problems. You have three main systems that you use to stay balanced. These are your eyes, inner ear, and body. The CDP will assess these systems to determine if they are functioning properly. If any abnormality occurs, the results will aid in providing a diagnosis about your imbalance.
Class IV Laser Therapy
Laser Therapy is a unique treatment option for pain, ear fullness and inflammation of the jaw. Current research shows that laser therapy improves circulation and stimulates tissue repair. This results in faster recovery times, and quickly reduces pain. A soothing warmth is felt during your treatment session, and for most people, relief is experienced in the first session.
At Fyzical, we are confident that our laser therapy, alongside Physical Therapy, will reduce your jaw pain, improve your range of motion and make everyday life more enjoyable.
The VNG is an in depth look at the inner ear, performed by one of our skilled audiologists. The VNG measures involuntary eye motions to determine if the inner ear is functioning properly. During the test, you will be in a dark room and wearing goggles to record your eye motions. If your results are normal, it means you inner ear is working well. However, if the results are abnormal, it usually indicates there is a disorder of the inner ear.
Each of these specialized tests are what set Fyzical apart from the crowd. Here at Fyzical of Shady Grove, we want to ensure that you get the best possible treatments on the market. If you would like further information on any of the tests or treatments, don’t hesitate to contact us.
