When eye movement is diminished, musculoskeletal health is compromised. Improving dynamic vision in aging patients benefits balance and posture.
The article, Dynamic Vision, was published by Today’s Geriatric Medicine and written by Dr. James Deom, OD, FAAO, MPH, and Dr. Cedrick Noel, DC, DACNB, FABCDD, explores the impact dynamic vision impairments can have on the musculoskeletal system, and how the strong connection between the visual system, brain, and spine leads patients to compensate for shortcomings in eye movement by adjusting their body positions or posture.
