What We Do
At Kaplan Brain & Body, we treat a variety of neurological disorders with different diagnostic tests and treatments such as the VNG/VOG Diagnostics, CAPS, infrared laser, qEEG brain mapping, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.
VOG (Video-oculography), also sometimes called video-ENG or VNG is a diagnostic instrument using high-tech goggles with infrared cameras to measure certain eye movements and neurological integrity to determine brain function. It is non-invasive with no radiation and tells us valuable information about why certain areas of your brain or nervous system aren’t functioning at optimal levels. MRIs and CAT scans are great for picking up tumors or strokes, but the VNG is best for telling us how the brain is functioning in real-time.
CAPS is a diagnostic tool that we use to help improve balance, coordination, gait, posture, alignment, strength and range of motion. It is very good for vestibular rehabilitation and it helps to diagnose and treat patients with vestibular function, dizziness, lightheadedness and balance problems.
Infrared Laser Therapy
The infrared laser or cold laser is a therapeutic device that helps to reduce inflammation, increase oxygenation, speed up healing time, reduce pain, and improve the function of the brain, the body, the joints, the muscles, the nerves, the bones, and the organs. This laser is great for pain, skin, hair, nails, improving brain function, arthritis, headaches, peripheral neuropathy, and fibromyalgia.
qEEG Brain Mapping
qEEG brain mapping is a diagnostic test used to create a “brain map” by reading your brain waves. This test can detect if there are any areas of your brain that are not functioning at optimal levels and can also detect medical abnormalities such as thyroid dysfunction, mitochondrial dysfunction, low dopamine levels, heavy metal poisoning, hyperglycemia, memory problems, insomnia, fatigue, high stress, and depression. The qEEG is great for diagnosing anxiety, ADHD/ADD, traumatic brain injuries (TBI), concussions, PTSD, seizures, epilepsy, headaches/migraines, dizziness, and sleep disorders.
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy
Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) helps to increase oxygen levels in your brain, body, nerves, muscles and organs. During a HBOT visit, the patient lies down in a chamber filled with 100% oxygen and as the machine increases in pressure, the oxygen gets squeezed into all the cells to increase energy, increase oxygen levels, increase brain function, speed up the healing process, and reduce symptoms of many chronic conditions such as CTE/TBI/concussions, Lyme disease, Parkinsons, stroke, heavy metal poisoning, chronic fatigue syndrome, insomnia, digestive problems, brain fog, neuropathy, skin problems, headaches, dizziness and many others.
