Functional Neurology


Functional Neurology & Chiropractic integrates the most current knowledge of brain science and nervous system function with evidence based diagnostics and therapeutics. Functional Neurologists are chiropractors, osteopaths, medical doctors and other licensed health professionals with a board certified specialty in neurology. The Functional Neurologist’s methods include brain-based therapies, chiropractic, physical medicine, nutrition and rehabilitation just to name a few.

Dysfunction and illness are often the result of nerve interference/disruption in the communication between the brain and the body. This nerve interference/disruption will cause the brain to shrink as nerve cells reduce in size and in many cases die. The Functional Neurologist identifies the anatomical sites where disruption has occurred and provides therapies to assist in removing interference and reintegrating communication.  These therapeutic interventions will enhance the brain-body connection, reducing physical, biochemical and neurological dysfunction and its associated symptoms.

Best of all, no medications or invasive procedures are used. This greatly reduces the chance of side effects and associated discomfort which often will delay healing. This non invasive approach allows the body’s inherent healing properties to function as designed and the body to heal itself.

This integrative model of healthcare has been proven beneficial in treating neuro-musculo-skeleton disorders ranging from balance issues, vertigo, dystonia and dizziness (often caused by whiplash and concussion), to Bell’s palsy, and Multiple Sclerosis. Additional neurodegenerative disorders that have benefitted from this approach include Parkinson’s, Alzheimer's  and Dementia. Even learning disorders such as ADD/ADHD, Tourette’s syndrome and Dyslexia can be successfully treated.
