What is Chiropractic Functional Neurology?
As a specialty of chiropractic, functional neurology takes an integrative approach. It assesses how your body’s neurologic, metabolic, nutritional, and biomechanical systems are interacting with one another.
What does this mean for you? Beyond looking at the structure and alignment of your spine, your provider may also pay attention to your visual system, your inner ear, your diet, and more to understand what is causing your symptoms.
What Can Functional Neurology Help?
Patients who benefit most from treatment with a functional neurology perspective have chronic, neurological symptoms (dizziness, vertigo, balance problems, headaches) and/or have experienced trauma, such as a concussion or stroke.
How does Functional Neurology Work
Research has proven that the brain can change and develop new connections at all ages. A functional neurologist’s treatment—including traditional chiropractic adjustment, visual therapies, and vestibular therapies (balance/inner ears)—works to enhance the performance of the brain and nervous system.
These therapies can increase neuroplasticity and help your nervous system to work more efficiently and build new connections.
