Assessment


The goal of our functional assessment is to determine under-functioning parts of the nervous system.  Every anatomical part of the brain serves specific functions.  Our non-invasive evaluation looks at many of those functions (listed below).  There is a strong likelihood that we will be able to improve an individual's symptoms if, upon evaluation, we see consistent dysfunction when we perform multiple tests of the same anatomical part.

Included in the Sensory, Motor and Neurological Assessment:

  • Balance and equilibrium
  • Eye movements
  • Vestibular canal integrity
  • Proprioception (awareness of body position)
  • Timing and coordination
  • Sensory evaluation
  • Core strength and stability
  • Autonomic function
  • Motor-skills milestones
  • Gross-motor and fine-motor skills
  • Muscle tone
  • Gait analysis
  • Primitive, postural and deep tendon reflexes
  • Interactive Metronome Long Form Assessment
  • HTS and PTS Assessments (Neuro-ophthalmology Programs)

Included in our assessment fee is a thorough report of findings, where individuals will be informed of the results of their or their child's testing, will have ample opportunity to ask questions, and will be given recommendations to correct the dysfunction that we may have found.

These results are the guiding factor in choosing which therapies will have the greatest likelihood of being effective.

  • ""Before we found Connections, we had tried everything for our son - OT, PT, nutrition, other chiropractors, ST, aquatic therapy . . . we were at our wit's end and ready to resign ourselves to having a son with Asperger's. Dinner time was chaos, he was violent towards me and my daughter, and tantrums were a daily tribulation."
    8yo, Asperger's
  • "Here is what we have seen in Sarah since June 2012:

    Improved balance and coordination – can now walk the entire driveway without holding onto my hand

    Greatly improved vision. Sarah could not match anything accurately before – the items were beside, under, “close by” but never matched right on top. Thanks!"

  • "Aley suffered from constant headaches and focus issues for a year after receiving a concussion in her sporting event. After seeing multiple medical professionals the only options presented to us were medications for the headaches and ADHD medication for the attention and focus issues. We were blessed to casually run into Dr. Jackson. After therapy at Connections Aley is now headache free and has no issues with focusing. Her processing and reaction time have also improved greatly!"
    Teenager, Post Concussion
