At all times, our bodiesand nervous system are constantly bombarded with sensation. The ability of ourbrains to prioritize this information properly is called sensory integration.When there is an issue with this process, many different problems can arise,including ADD/ADHD, learning disabilities and, in severe cases, Autism. Onefield geared to helping individuals with issues such as these is aptly calledSensory Integration (SI) Therapy. SI therapy can take on different forms, fromworking with an Occupational Therapist, to neurofeedback (with systems such asBraincore Therapy) to a machine called the Interactive Metronome (IM).

The IM uses a series ofhand and foot exercises synchronized to a rhythmic, computer-generated beat.The system measures the patient's response in milliseconds and uses auditoryand/or visual cues to help the patient to improve being in-sync with thismetronome. This improves rhythm andtiming in the brain, something extremely important in sensory integration. Therepetitiveness of the IM sessions helps the brain to create new pathways, ormake existing pathways more efficient, improving the brain's overallperformance.

Over the course oftreatment, patients learn to:

  • Focus and attend for longer periods of time

  • Increase physical endurance and stamina

  • Filter out internal and external distractions

  • Improve ability to monitor mental and physical actions as they are occurring

  • Progressively improve coordinated performance

IM can help withADD/ADHD, Autism Spectrum Disorders, learning disabilities, improving math,language skills and reading comprehension, overall academic performance, braininjuries, MS, Parkinson's Disease, sports performance and much more.

Chiropractic adjustmentscan be helpful with many of these issues because it too helps to integrate thenervous system by removing nvervous interference or negative nervous stimuli.When coupled with IM, the two have a synergistic effect on the brain, creatingeven better results than either alone.
