Neurocom CDP Testing
Struggling with Balance? Neurocom CDP Can Help You Get Back on Your Feet
If you are struggling with your balance, our Neurocom CDP technology can help.
Computerized Dynamic Posturography, or CDP, is an important type of vestibular testing that comprises both a visual booth and a computer-controlled platform.
These are both used as effective tools in analyzing the sensory and motor components of balance within the body. In cases of peripheral lesions, vertigo, or other areas where vestibular rehabilitation may be needed, Neurocom CDP is an invaluable tool.
If your balance or gait has been impaired, Neurocom CDP can help you get on the right treatment plan for your needs. Contact Fit Physical Therapy today to consult with one of our Overton, Mesquite, NV & Hildale, Hurricane, St. George, UT & Scenic, Littlefield, AZ physical therapists!
What should I know about Neurocom CDP?
At Fit Physical Therapy, our Neurocom CDP technology has helped many of our patients regain their balance and move with ease once again.
While Computerized Dynamic Posturography does not necessarily act as a diagnostic test, it does help in determining the very best course of treatment and rehabilitation, targeted toward the specific needs of each person. By determining where the problem areas are within the vestibular system, our Overton, Mesquite, NV & Hildale, Hurricane, St. George, UT & Scenic, Littlefield, AZ physical therapists can better treat the issue at its root, so you can find relief faster.
In fact, the National Institutes of Health recently published a study highlighting the efficacy of CDP, titled “Computerized Dynamic Posturography for Postural Control Assessment in Patients with Intermittent Claudication.” Within this article, CDP is used as a way to assess balance in claudicants and determine whether or not it is an effective method of treatment.
The article illustrates from the very beginning that “the early detection of postural deficits is important so that appropriate and targeted interventions can be prescribed.” Computerized Dynamic Posturography, which according to the authors is instrumental in “measuring postural strategies under challenging static and dynamic conditions” is a highly effective way to do just that.
Throughout the discussion of the article, it is reiterated that patients who received treatments based on CDP yielded the most positive results for their condition. The authors conclude:
“The assessment of postural control is important in individuals who have a higher susceptibility to falls, often because of ageing or disease. Computerized dynamic posturography is a unique technique in that the sensory systems responsible for balance can be challenged through separate protocols that systematically differentiate between impairments.”
