Chiropractic Functional Neurology – A combined problem related to your mind and body
What is Functional Neurology?
Functional neurology is receptor-based thinking where we find weaknesses in your nervous system through functional tests. We find the highest priority weakness in your nervous system and treat it to get your system back to normal functionality and make the symptoms disappear.
How does it work?
When our in-house chiropractor utilizes functional neurology he works with various aids such as a pre-assessment to measure the speed of eye movement and twitching to detect imbalances in the nervous system that the pathology can not be explained.
Sometimes chronic conditions such as chronic pain are something that can not be diagnosed according to the pathology, but an experienced chiropractor with functional neurology as a focus, can detect these imbalances that can give you as patient major health problems and reduced quality of life.
Why is it important to look at function rather than maximum force in a movement?
When we test movements or reflexes, it is seldom about testing maximum force but rather about testing the quality of the movement or reflex.
Our brain uses pain as an alarm system. That is, it informs us that something is wrong, but not WHAT is wrong. By testing functions on a deeper level than pure maximum force in a movement, we can get closer to the original problem itself instead of chasing symptoms.
Who is a suitable candidate and can be treated with functional neurology?
Everyone from an elite athlete who wants to be able to perform at the top, to the office employee who just wants to be able to go through his/her everyday life pain-free.
Each individual patient who enters the clinic requires their own treatment plan, assessment, and training schedule. We will find what works the best for you to achieve results.
