BEYOND BALANCE: Parkinson's Disease and Vestibular Stimulation

Parkinson's Disease makes mobility increasing difficult and robs many of the ability to accomplish routine tasks that rely on fine motor skills such as brushing teeth or buttoning a shirt. Studies have shown that vestibular stimulation can have a positive impact on several aspects of Parkinson's Disease. /span>

BEYOND BALANCE: Vestibular Stimulation and PTSD



Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) can develop after exposure to a potentially traumatic event that is beyond a typical stressor. Events that may lead to PTSD include, but are not limited to, violent personal assaults, natural or human-caused disasters, accidents, combat, and other forms of violence.

Many military personnel are routinely exposed to unique circumstances and situations that put them at risk for injury and exposure to trauma resulting in PTSD.

Because PTSD often manifests as vestibular dysfunction, vestibular stimulation and therapy are considered as means to address its symptoms.

Here are several studies about PTSD concerning cognition, and the vestibular system.
