NVT in the Clinical Setting – The Carrick Institute’s Neuro-Visual Therapy (NVT) course is designed to help physicians, athletic trainers, athletes, healthcare professionals, and performance coaches understand the relationships between sports performance, concussion and how they relate to the neuro-visual system. Learn NVT applications, time tested in the trenches, to help you solve concussions more effectively.
Neurovision therapy, also known as vision therapy or visual training, aims to improve a person's visual abilities through a series of exercises and activities. It is often used to treat vision problems such as amblyopia (lazy eye), strabismus (crossed or turned eyes), and other conditions that can cause visual disturbances.
The therapy is based on the idea that the brain can adapt and change through experience. That vision is not solely determined by the eyes but also by the brain's ability to interpret visual information. Neurovision therapy typically involves a combination of exercises, such as eye tracking, focusing, and perceptual activities, designed to help the brain develop or improve specific visual skills.
The therapy is typically administered by an optometrist, ophthalmologist, physical therapist, athletic trainer, chiropractor, or other trained healthcare professional specializing in vision therapy. The specific exercises and activities used in neurovision therapy will vary depending on the individual's needs and goals. The therapy may be combined with other treatments or therapies to achieve the best possible results.
