Treatment Of The Cerebellar Dysfunction May Include:
One or all of the procedures may be employed to restore the cerebellum to its normal function.
Unilateral (one-sided) Adjustments
Extremities (arms and legs), lumbar (low back) and cervical (neck) spine will be manipulated on one side only to fire muscle spindle cells (muscle receptors) and joint mechanoreceptors (joint receptors) into the same cerebellum and opposite cerebra cortex (brain). The thoracic (mid-back) spine will be globally manipulated to fire the dorsal columns (back part of the spinal cord) and reduce rib fixations.
A warm water caloric of 180 milliliters may be administered in the ear to stimulate the ipsilateral (same side) cerebellum.
Eye exercises may be used to increase the frequency of firing to the cerebellum and frontal lobe of the brain.
Oxygen is an important part of our approach. Each patient is checked using a pulse oximeter to determine their oxygen levels. Oxygen is fuel for the brain and nervous system and is important for the health and recovery of the cerebellum.
