A functional neurologist, also known as a chiropractic neurologist is a highly trained and qualified specialist of the nervous system. Functional neurologists are Doctors of Chiropractic with post-doctoral diplomate from the American Board of Chiropractic Neurology. Functional neurologists have advanced training in clinical neuroscience, studying extensively the functionality of the brain.

Having advanced training in clinical neuroscience, functional neurologist’s use many tools to evaluate the functionality of the nervous system and brain. This evaluation always begins with an extensive health history and 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 to locate areas of dysfunction. At Better Brain & Body, along with the thorough physical exam, we provide the following neurodiagnostic tests to pinpoint the cause of dysfunction in our patient’s brain:

  • Videonystagomgraphy (VNG) - Measures eye movements down to the millisecond that are related to different areas of the brain, brainstem and cerebellum.

  • Interactive Metronome (IM) Assessment - Measures rhythm and timing.

  • Gait Analysis

  • Primitive Reflex Testing

  • Computerized Dynamic Posturography (CDP) - Measures balance down to 100th of an inch.

  • Quantitative Electroencephalography - (qEEG) Measures delta, theta, alpha and beta waves in the frontal, temporal, parietal and occipital lobes of the brain.

  • Sensorimotor Evaluation

  • Hand-Eye Coordination Test

A functional neurologist’s main goal is to optimize brain function. We use a multi-modal approach to rehabilitation that consists of a wide variety of neurologically stimulating therapies. You and your doctor will work to create an individualized treatment plan that is optimum for your specific needs. Some of the common therapies include:

  • Neurofeedback

  • Eye Movement Therapy

  • Exercise with Oxygen Therapy (EWOT)

  • Vestibular RehabExercises

  • Interactive Metronome (IM)

  • Peripheral Somatosensory Stimulation

  • Primitive Reflex Remediation

  • HemiStim

  • Rotational Therapies

  • Cold Laser Therapy

  • Chiropractic Adjustments

  • Oscillation

  • Light & Color Therapies

  • AromaTherapy Techniques

  • And More!
