What is Functional Neurological Rehabilitation?

Functional Neurology is about finding the areas of the brain and nervous system that are not firing appropriately and why? These areas are then stimulated using chiropractic adjustments, neuromuscular re-education, visual, auditory, olfactory, and vestibular feedback to promote healthy function. At MFNC we utilize functional neurology, orthopedics, and chiropractic techniques to help you fully heal.

How quickly can I expect results or a noticeable change?

It is common for patients to see improvement after one to two treatments. Most patients start to notice a difference right away. With more complex and challenging cases it will take longer to making lasting changes. More complex cases will often see gradual improvement after 2-6 months of care depending on patient fragility.

What are the rehabilitation exercises like?

The rehabilitation exercises often consist of the Dynasion D2, ARP wave, myofascial therapy, targeted eye exercises, complex manual movements, stability training, and mobility exercises to restore function.

How do you improve chronic pain?

Chronic pain is improved by breaking the pain cycle through the functional neurology, orthopedics, and chiropractic techniques as well as nutritional therapies when necessary. We also re-balance the reflexes between your eyes and your spine through the development of specific eye exercises, which you will perform in office as well as at home in between office visits. Chiropractic adjustments are held longer when the eyes and the spine are in balance, this is because of the direct relationship between the two.

What do I have to do?

While functional neurology and its tools are a very powerful way of addressing health conditions, this is not a quick fix. Traditional medicine has answered the public’s demand to be better today even with very complex problems.

What is a Functional Neurology exam like?

The first office visit is typically one hour in length, which includes full history, examination, and care. The examination involves assessing cognitive function, short term and working memory, motor and sensory testing, reflex performance, cranial nerve function, balance, core stability, vestibular ocular reflexes, platform posturography, gait analysis, and myofascial planes.

Why should every Chiropractic Patient have a Functional Neurological exam?

A chiropractic adjustment is a huge amount of stimulus for the brain. By performing a functional neurological examination first we can assure to safely provide chiropractic adjustments that will not overstimulate compromised areas of the brain. We enhance treatment by sending the right kind of stimulus to targeted areas of the brain.
