    Jesse's Bio:
    I graduated in 2015 with a B.S. in Exercise Physiology and am now in the Doctorate of Physical Therapy program here at CSS. I played on the baseball team at CSS for four years. I was also a statistics tutor and currently work as personal care assistant in Duluth. I love the outdoors, hunting fishing, hiking, etc. While being at St. Scholastica I have noticed the “family” atmosphere and I am truly enjoying every second of it.

Vestibular Lab

We recently wrapped up our vestibular rehabilitation unit in my Neuromuscular Eval and Management II course, which is part of CSS’s 2nd year Doctor of Physical Therapy (DPT) program curriculum. Vestibular rehab is a really neat topic that can by slightly confusing, but also VERY cool as well!

Below one of my classmates has Frenzel-like video goggles on (sorry I’m not sure our exact goggle type), which block out light and help so that the patient does not fixate on anything while the evaluation for vestibular disorders occurs. The goggles help to illuminate and magnify the eye with the camera and then with an attachment you can record and watch eye movement on a TV screen. If you look closely you can see the subject’s (my classmate’s) eye on the TV.  Pretty neat device that is used in the clinic, which we had the opportunity to observe in lab!
