Have you recently recovered from surgery or sustained an injury that left you feeling different or hypersensitive? Our Occupational Therapist is here to guide you on a path of recovery through Desensitization and Sensory Re-education. These therapies are crucial for restoring your body’s normal sensory function and ensuring you regain your mobility and strength.
What is Desensitization / Sensory Re-Education?
Desensitization and Sensory Re-education are therapeutic interventions aimed at helping individuals regain normal sensation and functionality following an injury, surgery, or nerve damage. Desensitization focuses on reducing hypersensitivity by gradually being exposed to different textures and sensations. Sensory re-education, on the other hand, retrains the brain and nerves to interpret sensory information accurately, ensuring harmonious nerve-brain communication.
How Does Desensitization / Sensory Re-Education in Manhattan and Long Island Work?
These therapies work by employing a series of graded, systematic techniques. In Desensitization, the process begins with exposure to textures and sensations, gradually progressing from less irritating to more challenging stimuli. This process aids in reducing discomfort and hypersensitivity.
Sensory Re-Education takes a more neurological approach. Various exercises and activities help retrain the brain to interpret and respond to sensory information correctly, thereby improving functionality and coordination. This may include activities that challenge sensory discrimination, such as identifying objects by touch alone or distinguishing between different temperatures and textures.
