What Is Functional Neurology?
Functional neurology, also known as chiropractic neurology, is a treatment discipline for various neurological disorders without the use of surgery or pharmaceutical solutions.
A neurological disorder can change how the nervous system works, affecting muscle tone, balance, coordination, and flexibility. This dysfunction could lead to chronic pain, such as headaches, sciatica, scoliosis, carpal tunnel, neck pain, and more. Additionally, these types of disorders can also impact focus, attention, and cognitive processing abilities. Functional neurology takes an integrated approach to treating the root cause of these dysfunctions.
Functional neurology treats disorders including but not limited to the following:
- Brain injuries
- Movement disorders
- Vestibular challenges (balance and/or dizziness issues)
- Degenerative disorders (dementia and Alzheimer’s)
Traditional medicine does not always provide the solutions patients need to improve their overall quality of life, especially if you suffer from poorly characterized ailments (such as unexplained chronic pain, fibromyalgia, or movement disorders.
Functional neurology employs a combination of chiropractic manipulation along with various therapies and recommended lifestyle changes to help clients improve their overall quality of life.
Will Functional Neurology Cure a Neurological Disease?
While many neurological diseases are incurable, functional neurology can help improve your overall quality of life by improving functionality in different parts of your nervous system.
A neurodegenerative disorder like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s damages nerve cells and pathways in the nervous system. As such, we cannot change this. However, we can find a way to influence the remaining working parts of the nervous system and help make them work better. We strive to take the pathways that are still healthy and precisely stimulate and exercise them in order to make them more efficient, increase their endurance, and improve your ability to function in the world.
Our Approach to Functional Neurology
With brain-based rehabilitation, our San Diego chiropractic neurologist will address your needs through a variety of chiropractic services, manipulation, and treatment to “exercise” the area of the brain that needs to be stimulated to restore proper function. Treatments may entail eye movement exercises, balancing activities, stretches, physical activities, and more.
