Whiplash Injury

Neurootological findings in patients, suffering from occipital skull fractures

Skull traumas play an important roll in neurootological expertise writing. Skull traumas may occur at the rhinobasis, i.e. frontally, at the otobasis, i.e. laterally as well as from behind, i.e. occipitally. For this paper we have elected 26 cases of occipital skull fractures which were verified by radiology. It is known that the shockwaves of […]

Tinnitus due to irritations of the cervical spines

Tinnitus due to irritations of the cervical spines and the neck High incidence rates of functional neurootological disorders containing vertigo and tinnitus are found in the group of head-neck-trauma patients . This also is important in cases of musculo-skeletal dysfunctions like neck dystonus and cervical diseases. These groups are seen to form subgroups in which […]

Whiplash Injury: Frequent Brain Lesions Studied Through Brain Electric Tomography – LORETA –

A total of 46 patients have been chosen from our “Neurofisiología Oftalmológica” Data Bank with whiplash injury – Type 4 . Cervico-encephalic syndrome. They were studied with S-Low Resolution Brain Electric Tomography (S-LORETA), and their results were compared vs. 100 normal patients. Using Loreta and SNPM in our patients allow us to determine which are […]

Alterated head stabilization control during walking in whiplash

Vestibular system is primarily dedicated in keeping balance and field of view stable. However many pathologies, especially whiplash injuries, frequently reduce vestibular control with social and economical relevance. Many clinical and instrumental tests are used to analyze posture and gait improving the diagnosis of vestibular disorders. Among instrumental tests, CranioCorpoGraphy (CCG) is an efficient test […]

Manual/musculoskeletal medicine in the treatmento of vertigo

Vestibular nuclei receive signals from the skin, muscle, and viscera, although the pathways conveying these nonlabyrinthine inputs to the vestibular nucleus neurons are unknown. Experimental data show that an anatomical substrate is present for somatosensory and visceral inputs to influence the activity of cells in the autonomic region of the vestibular nuclei and suggest that […]

Approccio diagnostico ai disturbi dell’equilibrio negli esiti di colpo di frusta

The goal of this work is to study the vestibular system of whiplash people using a 3D dCCG system. A new experimental set-up, based on optoelettronic technique, was developed to evaluate the 3D pattern of movement of head and trunk in different experimental set-ups. The exam protocol is very close to the classical one with […]

Vestibular rehabilitation in whiplash injuries

Whiplash injury can be defined as a non-contact rapid acceleration-deceleration head-neck trauma during which the kinematics of the cervical spine are completely disrupted. Because of the impact a sudden violent head retro-flexion is followed by an as much as violent head antero-flexion. The therapy influenced Tonic muscles by increasing labyrinthine percentage and induced a reduction […]

Quantitative evaluation of stepping test data of patients with whiplash through digital craniocorpography

Digital-CranioCorpoGraphy (dCCG) can study the Equilibrium System through simple experimental procedures. The instrumentation records the movements of the head and the trunk of the patient suffering from whiplash syndrome who performs a motor task (Stepping Test).

The acupuncture treatment in whiplash injury

In this study we evaluated the postural changes after acupuncture treatment in a group of 27 patients with balance disorders caused by cervical torsion due to Whiplash Injury (WI). The acupuncture treatment consisted of 3 sessions (one weekly session for 3 weeks) during which the acupuncture points Bladder 10 and Gall Bladder 20. VB were […]

Neurootological findings in 131 whiplash patients

Whiplash patients referred for neurootological investigation underwent the full test battery including electronystagmography for spontaneous and positional nystgmus, ocular smooth pursuit, saccades, caloric responses and visual suppression during the caloric response. In most patients visual suppression was also performed using a broad frequency rotatory chair. Dynamic posturography was performed, in some patients even with head […]
