What should I expect during treatment?

Prior to strength and conditioning training at Abbey Neurodynamic Center, your practitioner reviews your medical history and symptoms and completes an exam. 

They may use imaging, or other diagnostic tests to determine if you have a disease, injury, or cognitive impairment. Your doctor uses this information to personalize a treatment plan just for you that might include:

Functional training

Functional training involves basic strength, balance, and flexibility exercises that increase overall body functioning and reduce your risk of falls and other injuries.

Movement technology

Movement technology uses advanced equipment to train your body for strength, a better mind-body connection, endurance, and heart health without the stress of traditional workouts. Movement technology enhances muscle recovery and helps prevent injuries.


During neurofeedback sessions, EEG sensors record your brain’s activity while you learn. You receive positive reinforcement during sessions to train your brain for improvements in overall cognitive functioning and new neural connections. 

Vision training

The Abbey Neurodynamic Center vision training program combines neuropsychology and vision exercises to enhance your visual system and improve overall brain function. This noninvasive technique improves brain processing, balance, hand-eye coordination, depth perception, peripheral awareness, and spatial relations without taking medications.

Light therapy

Light therapy uses near infrared light to improve thyroid function, promote fat loss, reduce inflammation, aid in muscle recovery, enhance skin health, and optimize sleep in adults of all ages.
