Why the Functional Neurology Approach is Different:
Functional Neurology is a unique specialty of clinical neuroscience where results are obtained through precise stimulation and therapy, without utilizing invasive procedures or drugs. While our treatment is intensive, it is never uncomfortable. Our goal is to stimulate your brain’s natural capacity for growth and change, enabling you to achieve optimal mental, and physical performance, as well as a good quality of life.
At Precision Brain center we offer leading-edge treatment for patients suffering from traumatic brain injuries, degenerative neurological diseases, developmental disorders, as well as musculoskeletal issues. Since the brain is the control center for every function in the body, we approach your care by addressing the root cause of pathology. Restoration of brain health is achieved by providing unique individualized therapies tailored to your comprehensive physical exam findings so that significant improvements in neurological function and performance can be achieved in as little time as possible.
These improvements can include:
- Decreased symptoms
- Sports Performance Enhancement
- Clearer thinking
- Sharper memory
- Better balance
- Precise motor control
- Improved Mood
- Deeper comprehension
- Faster mental processing
- Higher cognitive function
These outcomes are achieved by a process known as “neuroplasticity,” or the brain’s ability to adapt, change, and grow stronger when the proper stimulus is provided. Scientific research and extensive evidence have made neuroplasticity a widely-known concept, however clinical application providing practical treatment is very limited. This is due to the complex nature of the central nervous system, rewiring new connections requires that the specificity, timing, and intricate combination of stimuli are precisely tailored to each individual’s brain. Dr. Gabella is an expert in Brain rehabilitation and neurological performance enhancement, offering hope for restoring brain health even in the most compromised patients.
Typically, a functional neurologist serves in the same consulting manner as a medical neurologist. The difference is that the therapies or applications of a functional neurologist do not include drugs or surgery. As a result, certain conditions are more customarily seen by a functional neurologist as opposed to a medical neurologist, and vice versa.
As mentioned above, a functional neurologist serves in a similar way as a medical neurologist. The difference is that a functional neurologist treats neurological disorders without drugs or surgery. There are a lot of conditions out there that, once diagnosed, have no conventional medical treatment or the treatment out there is not very effective. That’s where we come in. Often times we are treating disorders or individuals for which there are no other treatment options.
Most people have disorders in their body’s function; they do not have true pathology. Conventional medicine only has the means to treat pathology. They are not taught to recognize and treat functional disorder. They end up using medications to control the symptoms of these problems without actually addressing what is causing it in the first place.
