A functional neurologist, also known as a chiropractic neurologist, is a highly trained and qualified nervous system specialist. Functional neurologists are Doctors of Chiropractic with a post-doctoral diplomate from the American Board of Chiropractic Neurology. Functional neurologists have advanced training in clinical neuroscience, studying the brain's functionality extensively.
Having advanced training in clinical neuroscience, functional neurologists use many tools to evaluate the functionality of the nervous system and brain. This evaluation always begins with an extensive health history and a thorough physical examination. Then, a detailed neurological exam is performed, along with neurodiagnostic tests.
Diagnostic technologies are used to get a closer look at how your visual system, vestibular system, balance, and coordination are working. All this information provides a window into the functionality of your brain and nervous system to locate underlying areas of dysfunction in both your brain and body.
A functional neurologist’s primary goal is to optimize brain function. We use a multi-modal rehabilitation approach that consists of a wide variety of neurologically stimulating and benefiting therapies. Functional Neurology plays a crucial role in assessing, treating, and optimizing neurological (brain) function by prioritizing the health of the brain, the body's control center. Our comprehensive services are designed to comprehend brain function and its impact on bodily function, emphasizing the vital connection between the two. By optimizing our brains, we inherently optimize our bodies. You and your doctor will work to create an individualized treatment plan that is optimum for your specific needs.
