Sensory Overload

ATTENTION: Quantum Neurology™ Rehabilitation is not a treatment or a cure; it is Neurological Rehabilitation. Doctors often use the word treatment to describe their interaction with a patient, not to imply a cure for a patient’s Injury, Illness or Condition. Quantum Neurology™ Rehabilitation uses traditional and unique neurological evaluations to perform before and after validation of neurological changes. Even though you may share the same symptoms as a patient mentioned on this website; each patient and their injury, illness or condition is unique. As with any form of rehabilitation; there is no way to predict or guarantee how you or anyone else will respond to neurological rehabilitation. Your results may vary.

Case Study Submission by: Dr. Mark Trell, DC, QN


List of patient’s conditions and chief complaints:

  • 57 Year Old Female
  • Sensory Overload and Associated Symptoms below
  • Cerebral Palsy Like Symptoms
  • Light & Sound Sensitivity
  • Fatigue (Severe)
  • Loss of Speech



A 57 year-old white female in poor health presented with sensory overload. She has suffered with this problem since serving in the military. Upon sensory overload, she would physically resemble someone with cerebral palsy. She refers to her condition as a “crash”. During a crash, her right shoulder, arm, hand, and her right calf would draw up. She would also experience foot drop on her right foot. Her first recollection occurred while she was learning to shoot on the artillery range, and the noise apparently set off this condition. Since then, the least amount of noise, noxious fumes, and/or physical stimulation would cause a relapse of this condition. When experiencing a crash, she feels the need to lie down as she is “so tired.” During a crash she would become increasingly sensitive to light and sound and would be unable to speak. At times she would experience a crash at the office and she would have to rest for up to four hours to regain her strength. She had been to multiple neurology and psychological specialists. They prescribed her with “Fiorinal” with the instructions to keep it with her at all times, and to take it if she felt as if she was going to experience a crash. She first presented to our office in 1996 for non-force chiropractic care. Initially she did not respond to Chiropractic care. Through trial and error, I found that an osseous adjustment to the upper cervical (C1-2) area would relieve her of her crash symptoms, which was a significant improvement.


When she first presented to our office she appeared fragile and frail. She was 45 years-old but looked 75, complete with an increased thoracic hump (kyphosis). When she heard a couple of years ago that I was studying a new technique, she was excited. She was always hopeful that we would one day “cure her”. She always presented in a hyper-vigilant state (fight/flight), and at any time during treatment she would crash. After learning Quantum Neurology™ Rehabilitation, I incorporated it as a part of her rehabilitation program.


Over the past two years, since learning Quantum Neurology™ Rehabilitation, I was able to perform Motor, Visceral and Cranial Nerve rehabilitation. I also utilized the Quantum Neurology™ Allergy Desensitization technique. This was accomplished with the GRT LITE™ and the ArthroStim®.


Patient is now able to function in society. She No longer lives in fear! She is no longer limited from working from home and works an outside sales job. She is now able to go out in public to the grocery store. It is my professional opinion that the Quantum Neurology™ Rehabilitation was responsible for her amazing improvement. The patient has started walking for exercise and is leading a much more normal life.


She is very happy with the changes in her life. The patient has maintained her results with weekly Quantum Neurology™ Rehabilitation sessions. Improvement continues.
