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 treat disorders that don’t resolve with 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. However, it lacks efficacy in diagnosing and treating functional neurological deficits seen in mTBI and concussions.

Medications are typically very limited in treating a neurological disorder. Drugs and supplements don’t have the ability to selectively bind to one receptor site in the brain which can consequently cause more side effects than improvements.  Symptoms can often worsen or become masked by medication meanwhile neurodegeneration and diaschisis continue to occur, resulting in further brain dysfunction.
