About Functional Neurology
Chiropractic Functional Neurology
A Revolutionary Approach to Natural Healing. Your brain is designed to grow and change. It develops and responds relative to your internal and external environments. Doctors who specialize in functional neurology assess the neurological condition of a patient and treat that patient using non-invasive, non-pharmaceutical therapies. It might be best described as “brain-based physical rehabilitation.”
The functional neurological examination and assessment are similar to that of medical neurologists; however the treatment style is much different. Functional neurologists use specific one-sided stimulations and coupled chiropractic adjustments to rehabilitate brain-based neurologic conditions. Patients with both diseases and physiological problems can benefit from this approach.
People seek functional neurologists for treatment of a variety of conditions, including autism, Asperger’s syndrome, attention deficit disorder (ADD), obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD), Tourette’s syndrome, dyslexia, dyscalculia, strabismus, brain injury, vertigo, motion sickness, dizziness, resting and intention tremors, Parkinson’s disease, and Parkinson syndromes. A functional neurologist’s goal is to integrate all of the brain’s sensory activities into an orderly system.
Today, thanks in a great part to the Carrick Institute for Graduate Studies, chiropractic’s neurological foundation is deeper, wider, and stronger than ever. The functional neurologist has a unique calling to both study and skill, and has developed a superior knowledge of neurology, the application of which is done without drugs or surgery. That standard enables them to better care for their patients and become referral sources for neurological diagnosis.
