Vestibular rehabilitation in whiplash injuries

Whiplash injury can be defined as a non-contact rapid acceleration-deceleration head-neck trauma during which the kinematics of the cervical spine are completely disrupted. Because of the impact a sudden violent head retro-flexion is followed by an as much as violent head antero-flexion. The therapy influenced Tonic muscles by increasing labyrinthine percentage and induced a reduction […]

Virtual reality and vestibular rehabilitation. six years of experience.

To test the application of virtual reality (VR) on our patients we used a particular “helmet” connected to a personal computer. The rehabilitation training is divided in two phases: “passive” and “active”. RV 752 patients, 259 males and 393 females, had been submitted to the vestibular rehabilitation with VR. The patients were affected with: Paroxysmal […]

Ozone- and pressure-pulse therapy in meniere’s disease

The aim of the study was to evaluate the usefulness of ozone- and pressure-pulse therapy in Meniere’s disease. 15 patients ( 8 men, 7 women) suffering from Meniere’ s disease for 1 to 3 years with permanent sensorineural hypoacusis were tested using objective otoacoustic emissions and SISI test together with subjective anamnesis comparing results before […]

The acupuncture treatment in whiplash injury

In this study we evaluated the postural changes after acupuncture treatment in a group of 27 patients with balance disorders caused by cervical torsion due to Whiplash Injury (WI). The acupuncture treatment consisted of 3 sessions (one weekly session for 3 weeks) during which the acupuncture points Bladder 10 and Gall Bladder 20. VB were […]

The role of vestibular rehabilitation in treatment of postototoxic labyrinthine pathology

Vestibular rehabilitation is a treatment method useful in some specific pacients with vestibular disorders who still complaint of dizziness or disequilibrium after at least 3 month of medical or surgical correct treatment. Vestibular rehabilitation consists of custom-designed daily physical exercises and specific trening exercises three times a week on a special computerized equipment, under ENT […]

About balance on platform: mathematical modeling for clinical evaluation

This paper describes, from a technologic and mathematical point of view, a systematic method for daily patient’s equilibrium evaluation during the clinical work.

Response of human skull to bone-conducted sound in the audiometric-ultrasonic range

Some new therapies for tinnitus employ bone-conducted sound in the high audio and ultrasonic frequencies, but there has been little previous research on sound transmission through the head at these frequencies.

Neurofeedback and quantitative electroencephalography

This study was conducted in an attempt to determine the efficacy of neurofeedback (NFB) in the treatment of patients suffering from vertigo or tinnitus. Results indicated that after NFB, power for delta and theta bands was reduced; however, an increase of power was noted for the alpha bands.

A new proposal for rehabilitation of equilibrium disorders of cervical origin: e.s.a.c. technique

The authors illustrates a new rehabilitation technique worked out to treat equilibrium disorders. This technique, named ESAC (Elasticizzazione, Scollamento, Allenamento, Calore = Elasticization-Detachment-Training-Heat), is based on the recovery of soft tissue elasticity through repeated active movement, detachment and exogenous heat. In this paper the author reports the results attained in the course of the years […]

Una nuova proposta riabilitativa per i disordini dell’equilibrio di origine cervicale:tecnica e.s.a.c.

L’autore espone una nuova tecnica riabilitativa elaborata e proposta per i disordini dell’equilibrio. Tale tecnica denominata E.S.A,C (.elasticizzazione,scollamento,allenamento,calore), si basa sul ripristino dell’ elasticità dei tessuti molli del distretto cervico_brachiale e torace ,attraverso il movimento attivo ripetuto, lo scollamento, e l’uso di calore esogeno. In questo lavoro vengono presentati i risultati ottenuti nel corso degli […]
