What Is Functional Neurology?
When a person is suffering from a neurological disorder or related symptoms, something is not working correctly in the brain or nervous system. Perhaps a specific area is not receiving enough stimulation or, perhaps, a specific area is experiencing too much stimulation. Functional neurology takes years of traditional neuroscience and applies new, groundbreaking research to address these issues in an innovative, holistic manner.
By using a non-invasive exam, which takes into consideration posture, tics, eye movements, and alignment, a physician determines where in the nervous system the problem exists. Then, based on the individual’s history, symptoms, and bio-individuality, that area will be given just the right amount of stimulation to help address the problem. Specific exercises, such as traditional chiropractic practices, eye exercises, visual, auditory, and olfactory stimulation, and heat therapy may be used to activate the targeted area of the brain.
What Kinds of Issues Does Functional Neurology Address?
Functional neurology does not “fix” an illness or symptom, but works to have the brain function in a way that promotes healing and optimizes cognitive and neurological wellness.
Because the brain is involved in health, wellbeing, vitality, cognition, and emotional states, functional neurology can help improve a multitude of aliments, such as:
- Headaches and Migraines
- Balance Disorders
- Low Immunity
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- ADD and ADHD
- Persuasive Developmental Disorders (PDD)
- Restless Leg Syndrome
- Multiple Sclerosis
- Spinal Stenosis
- Hip/Knee/Feet Pain
- Arm/Shoulder Pain
- Lower Back Pain/Sciatica
- Neck Pain
- Bulging and Herniated Discs
- Symptoms Associated with Early Alzheimer’s
Functional Neurology is not a cure or treatment for any disease or illness. Instead, it is used to help optimize brain function so that symptoms are reduced and the brain becomes healthier.Book a Consult
