Somatosensory Stimulation

Somatosensory Stimulation for Treatment of Concussion & Sports-Related Injuries

Repetitive Peripheral Somatosensory Stimulation is one of the innovative therapies that provides electrical impulses to specific brain structures and improves the connections between pathways in the nervous system. This is a specific electrical stimulation designed to help patients rebuild accurate somatosensory maps of their body which are lost as a result of stroke, cognitive aging, or below optimal brain function. The somatosensory system is the part of the sensory system that relies on touch to experience sensation; light touch, pain, pressure, and vibration are all somatosensory experiences. This therapy applies low-dose electrical stimulation to cranial nerves or peripheral nerves that innervate the skin and muscles most superficially. The stimulation then travels directly to deep nuclei in the brain, ultimately, to stimulate the sensory and motor pathways sufficiently and cause changes in brain function.  Somatosensory evoked potential utilizes small electrical currents to stimulate the nerve endings in muscle and skin to rewire proper neuron connections as well as re-map accurate body reference frames that are continuously used to effectively carry out every task we perform as human beings
