PoNS Therapy® and APTA: Your Partners in Treating Gait Deficit for Patients with MS
– Dr Chatiwala, PT, DPT, MS, NCS at Rehab Health 360, and board-certified neuro clinical specialist
Combined with physical rehabilitation exercise, known as PoNS Therapy, PoNS can help patients significantly improve their gait to help keep them active and independent.
PoNS is delivered by neurostimulation through a mouthpiece that rests on the tongue and is connected to a portable controller. Through targeted sensory nerve endings on the tongue connected to the brainstem, PoNS uses electrical stimulation to promote adaptive changes. This leads to the development of new neurite/axonal networks to replace/repair impaired corticospinal tract pathways that deliver the signal to the spinal cord.
Hear real results! What patients and physical rehabilitation specialists are saying about PoNS.
