NVT

About the Course

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.

What is Neuro- Visual Therapy?

NVT is a clinical application used to improve, enhance and/or develop the visual system, and its connections to other systems, runs more efficiently and automatically. 

Patients learn to use their visual abilities in new and more efficient ways by participating in various neuro-visual exercises, many of them performed with little or no equipment. Exercises are designed to bring a set of skills to conscious awareness, practice using those skills to mastery so they become automatic.

The overall goal of NVT is to alleviate the signs and symptoms of visual dysfunction, maximize visual and overall performance, meet the patient’s needs and improve the patient’s quality of life and performance.

What you will learn

Scholars in this course will learn the three pillars of neuro-visual therapy, including oculomotor performance, eye discipline, and processing ability.
