NeuroCatch™ Brain Function Assessment

About NeuroCatch™ Brain Function Assessments

The NeuroCatch™ Platform is an objective, rapid neuro-physiological brain function assessment system that is easy-to-use, cost effective and readily accessible in Canada.

What to Expect

The NeuroCatch system is a scientific, evidence-based approach that uses EEG technology to trigger, capture and rapidly translate your brainwave signals into a standardized clinical report.

Each scan takes approximately 6 minutes, and provides accurate measurements of the “ABC’s of Brain Function”: Auditory Sensation, Basic Attention, and Cognitive Processing. These cognitive measures can be measured over time, with the NeuroCatch reports providing a summary of up to 10 most recent scans for the same client.

Vestibular Rehabilitation

 

About Vestibular Rehabilitation

When someone experiences a problem with their vestibular system, they may be dizzy, have vertigo (spins), experience visual disturbances, and/or have poor balance. Research has shown that vestibular rehabilitation can be effective to improve these symptoms.

What to Expect

Your therapist will complete an assessment of your vestibular system to help determine the cause of your symptoms. Sometimes, vestibular conditions can be helped after a few sessions of treatment. In other cases, more comprehensive rehabilitation exercises may be required to help retain the vestibular system, or help retrain the brain to learn how to use other senses instead (for example, in cases where part of the vestibular system is lost).

Balance Testing

About Balance Testing

Sensory organization testing (SOT) is offered by our clinical team through the NeuroCom® SMART Balance Master. SOT is a form of posturography that is designed to assess and quantify your ability to use visual, vestibular and proprioceptive cues to maintain balance. It has been recommended for use by the American Physical Therapy Association, Neurology Section for individuals with Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinsons, Spinal Cord Injury, Traumatic Brain Injury and Vestibular conditions.

Access to a NeuroCom® SMART Balance Master is limited in British Columbia. We offer the only machine in the Lower Mainland readily available for private scheduling. The results from the NeuroCom® SMART Balance Master are objective and individual; focusing rehabilitation on the right problem and eliminating any guesswork.

What to Expect

Not all balance problems are the same, and the wide variety of symptoms can make it difficult to determine the cause of a balance disorder and which treatment options are the most appropriate.

The techniques utilized by the NeuroCom® were initially developed with support from NASA and later from the National Institute of Health. It has been used in worldwide scientific research for decades, and is considered the “Gold Standard” for evaluation of balance impairment.

Upon the Sensory Organization Testing, a Test Summary Statement of Results (Raw Report) is made available. The raw report provides comprehensive numerical outcomes generated automatically by the machine, and can be given to the client as well as an outside practitioner for interpretation (if applicable).

Concussion Rehabilitation

About Concussion Rehabilitation

Concussion rehabilitation involves looking at multiple processes of the brain and body to understand which factors are contributing to your symptoms.

What to Expect

Concussion Rehabilitation can involve a variety of therapies including, but not limited to:

• Exercise therapy (for example, to aid in improving blood flow),

• Manual therapy (ongoing symptoms can be associated with the neck, as mechanism of injury may have involved a whiplash),

• Visual and vestibular rehabilitation (can aid in improving balance and reducing symptoms of dizziness, nausea, visual disruptions, memory challenges etc.),

• Education (learning about your symptoms and understanding how to pace activities) and strategies in relaxation and mindfulness.

Persistent Pain Rehabilitation

About Persistent Pain Rehabilitation

Persistent Pain Rehabilitation can involve many processes, depending on the type and presentation of your pain. Finding strategies to help the nervous system calm down, become less sensitive to touch/movement and helping you become more physically active again are key.

What to Expect

When working with individuals who have persistent pain, we take a biopsychosocial approach, meaning we need to look at all factors that may be contributing to your pain presentation. This can include factors such as tissue changes, movement changes, sleep habits, stress, mood, thoughts, fears etc.

Your therapist will explain your condition to you and help you understand why you feel the way you do. Your therapist will also work with you to help you learn how to manage your pain and get back to doing the things in life that give you meaning.

Occupational Therapy

About Occupational Therapy

Occupational Therapy provides services to support clients having difficulty participating in daily activities (e.g. self-care, household management, leisure, work, and school).

What to Expect

Occupational Therapists look at a person’s overall function, including components of mental health, cognitive health, functional capacity and energy optimization.

Your Occupational Therapist can help teach you strategies to improve cognitive performance, better manage stress, improve sleep and fatigue, live well with a chronic condition, return to work or school, make your home safe and accessible, and engage in relaxation/energy conservation techniques.

Acupuncture & Dry Needling

About Acupuncture

Acupuncture is a holistic treatment where thin needles are inserted at specific points of the body. Each acupuncture point has a different purpose, and each has an effect on specific muscles, joints, tendons, ligaments and soft tissues.

Western research studies have found that the key systemic effects of acupuncture include analgesic (pain relief) and anti-inflammatory outcomes. Acupuncture stimulates natural healing responses from the body and can have profound effects through stimulation of the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system.

About Dry Needling

Dry needling – also known as myofascial trigger point dry needling or intramuscular stimulation (IMS) – is a procedure where an acupuncture needle is inserted into the skin and muscle.

Dry needle therapy is used in physiotherapy in combination with other forms of physical therapies for the treatment of lower back pain, neck pain and plantar fasciitis. It can aid restored muscle activation and strength, restored range of motion, and relief of back pain. In addition, needling can also be used to stimulate the release of endorphins, which enhances the body’s natural healing ability and improves mood and energy.

What to Expect

All of our therapists who needle have taken specific training to do so, and are regulated by the College of Physical Therapists of British Columbia. Both services are offered as a conjunct to physiotherapy services.

Physiotherapy

About Physiotherapy

Physiotherapy is a science-based approach to healthcare lead by practitioners who are dedicated to working with people to maximize their ability to function throughout their life. Physiotherapists take a holistic approach to health and well-being through education, awareness, empowerment and participation in treatment.

What to Expect

Our goal is to get you moving again! At the Surrey Neuroplasticity Clinic, we focus primarily on individuals with neurological injuries and conditions.

Our therapists have completed extra training utilizing NDT (Neurodevelopmental treatment) and Bobath techniques. These techniques involve in depth knowledge of human movement patterns and expertise in analyzing postural control, movement and activity.

Through therapeutic handling, your therapist will optimize nervous system processing, task performance and skill acquisition to enable participation in meaningful tasks.

Kinesiology

About Kinesiology

Kinesiologists specialize in assessments related to injury and disease – using the science of human movement to assist you with injury prevention and rehabilitation.

What to Expect

Our kinesiologists work closely with your healthcare team to assist you to carry out your rehabilitative program. They have the ability to complete functional capacity evaluations in relation to occupational requirements, complete biomechanical analysis and outline an exercise program to improve your overall health and function.

“Not only does the brain send signals to the body to influence it; the body sends signals to the brain to affect it as well, and thus there is constant, two-way communication between them. […] Neuroplasticians have learned to use these avenues from the body to the brain to facilitate healing. Thus, while a person who has had a stroke may not be able to use his foot because the brain is damaged, moving the foot can, at times, awaken dormant circuits in the injured brain. The body and mind become partners in the healing of the brain, and because these approaches are so noninvasive, side effects are exceedingly rare.”
