A Progressive Approach:
A sequential program emerges as one of the most promising, research-based methods to help veterans manage their tinnitus.
In order to help patients, it is necessary to mitigate the functional effects of tinnitus, such as difficulties with sleep, concentration, and relaxation.
Participating in our healing and our future is essential. It’s just the strategy that needs adjusting. Realizing that the mind cannot cure the body (or finances, or relationship, or business, or, or, or,…) allows for two VERY important things.
Stroke symptoms can be so tricky to spot that sometimes, even emergency room doctors get it wrong.
Vestibular disorders are difficult to diagnose. Occasionally, a patient with challenging symptoms will be referred for a mental health evaluation instead of additional testing to determine whether there is a physical cause. Amelia Ruzicka discusses whether and when it is appropriate for a medical doctor to label a patient with a mental health diagnosis.
Your doctor may soon need to test how "activated" you are.
Following a concussion, young athletes engaging the most in activities requiring concentration and attention (eg, doing homework, text messaging, and playing video games) take the longest time to recover, a new study has found.
Neurologists at Ludwig-Maximilians-Universitaet (LMU) in Munich have studied the role of the vestibular system, which controls balance, in optimizing how we direct our gaze. The results could lead to more effective rehabilitation of patients with vestibular or cerebellar dysfunction.
