Nov 14, 15 , Video: Jason Dandrea, MPT, discusses vestibular rehabilitation

Hi my name is Jason Dandrea, physical therapist at In Motion physical therapy in Downingtown PA. Today I would like to talk to you about vestibular rehabilitation. The vestibular system is located within the inner ear and is responsible for a number of different functions including balance and orienting our body with our environment. The vestibular system along with our vision and the information we receive from our sensory system send information to our brain to keep us functioning properly. There are many reasons why the vestibular system can malfunction, when it does it often leads to dizziness, vertigo, vision problems and trouble walking. Physical Therapists are trained to evaluate and treat the vestibular system. If you are having any problems associated with the vestibular system and would like to set up an evaluation please give us a call.

Jun 27, 14 , Video: Jason Dandrea discusses Neurodynamics

Neurodynamics is the idea that the nervous system: the brain, spinal cord and nerves throughout the body are one continuous system that needs to be able to stretch, compress, and move when we move. When the nervous system loses the ability to move when we move, symptoms can be felt. The nervous system is capable of creating a variety of symptoms including: pain, tingling, numbness, and burning just to name a few. There are many reasons why the nervous system may cause symptoms including direct trauma such as spinal cord injury, repetitive stress such as in carpal tunnel syndrome, and when the nerve roots become compressed by a intervertebral disc in the spine. A Physical Therapist – through a thorough evaluation and using the most up to date treatments – can help restore the nervous system and the surrounding tissues to a healthy condition, resulting in less symptoms and a better quality of life.
