What Do Functional Neurologists Do?

Functional neurologists treat individuals, not their diseases. After all, we cannot cure neurological diseases. However, through individualized therapies, it is possible to improve function and quality of life.

What Conditions Does A Functional Neurologist Treat?

Functional neurologists treat patients with a wide range of neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, cerebral palsy, and multiple sclerosis. We also treat people with autism, ADHD, and those recovering from concussions.

What Does Therapy Look Like?

Our therapy looks different for everyone since we create customized treatment plans based on your condition and your treatment goals. In general, though, we stimulate your brain and build endurance in the fragile areas of your brain. We use a variety of treatment options, including neurofeedback, hyperbaric oxygen therapy, vestibular rehabilitation, and more.

How Is A Functional Neurologist Different Than A Medical Neurologist?

Functional neurology, unlike medical neurology, rehabilitates patients without pharmaceuticals or surgery. Functional neurologists are trained in the diagnosis and management of neurological disorders and certified through the American Chiropractic Neurology Board and the American College of Functional Neurology.
