Recording My Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy Journey May Have Come To An End

I can’t stop, and I won’t stop? What happens when you are willing to share your journey, but others are reluctant? I got this crazy idea in my head ; I was going to record my vestibular rehabilitation journey, in hopes we may all learn from the experience. What I failed to realize before I promised to deliver:

1. I need to ask permission
2. I have no idea how to edit video
3. I can’t be in complete control of the video recording, because I am in therapy.

I often lead with ideas first, application second. I may need to rethink the way I approach project ideas.

I can overcome obstacles 2 and 3, however, convincing the physical therapy center to allow me to record this journey may become an obstruction of my goal.

I believe this PT center is the best at what they do. My PT therapist has won me over. She is all business, and together we will kick butt and take names.

If you believe capturing my vestibular rehabilitation journey, for the next three months, would be beneficial, please comment below. I will direct the owner of the PT center to your comments.

Video Blog: Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy Day 1 and beyond

ATTENTION: If you suffer from a vestibular disorder or are sensitive to motion and movement, please note that this video is at times shaky. ( I am working on a solution)

I will be documenting my journey through Vestibular Rehabilitation Therapy. This video details day one. I end up running into the insurance machine but this time I prevail.

The focus of this visit was initial evaluation. The purpose of the visit was to provide history and set realistic expectations.

The goggles are part of the device called Videonystagmoscopy

“Videonystagmoscopy has been used to subjectively observe the responses of the vestibular system in a population of patients with vestibular deficits. The videonystagmoscopy device is made of one or two CCD cameras mounted on lightproof goggles, allowing a subjective observation of ocular movements on a video monitor. The eye movements, as well as the position of the head in space, can be recorded on videotape.”

As we reveal my defects we will gather a realistic expectation of what can be achieved through vestibular rehabilitation.

Much love,
