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. Typically, a functional neurologist serves in the same consulting manner as a medical neurologist. The difference between the two specialties lies in the clinical application and therapies utilized to treat the patient.
There are a lot of neurological conditions that, once diagnosed, have no conventional medical treatment or the treatment options are often ineffective. That’s where a Functional Neurologist can play a huge role in the integrative care of complex disorders. Often times we are treating disorders or individuals for which there are no other treatment options.
Most people have problems with the way their brain & body are functioning; they often times do not have a true pathology or an ablative lesion yet they still suffer from symptoms due to their functional deficits. Conventional medicine is necessary for treating ablative brain pathology but lacks efficacy in recognizing and treating functional disorders seen in mTBI and concussions. Medications don’t have the ability to selectively bind to one receptor site in the brain and therefore cause more side effects than improvements. Meanwhile, the patient’s damaged neurons will continue to undergo diaschisis while their symptoms are being masked by medication.
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.
