Functional Neurology Q & A

What is functional neurology?

Functional neurology combines cutting edge brain-based therapies with physical and occupational medicine to rehabilitate your brain and body. Functional neurology is a pharmaceutical-free, holistic approach to wellness. It combines neurological and physical rehabilitation to retrain your brain and body for optimal functionality.

Functional neurology involves a thorough assessment to locate the primary dysfunction in the brain and body. For example, if your cerebellum is under-functioning, you may have neck pain due to the intimate control of the tiny postural muscles in the neck. 

After the dysfunction is located, Dr. Thompson identifies the right type and amount of stimulation needed to repair your neurological and physical function.

What conditions improve with functional neurology treatments?

Dr. Thompson and the team at Danville Chiropractic Neurology use functional neurology to address a comprehensive range of issues including:

  • Arm/shoulder pain
  • Balance disorders
  • Bulging/herniated discs
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Concussions and brain issues
  • Dizziness
  • Dystonia
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Headaches and migraines
  • Hip/knee/foot pain
  • Insomnia
  • Low back pain/sciatica
  • Low immunity
  • Multiple sclerosis symptoms

If you have a painful or disruptive physical health condition and are looking for drug-free, patient-focused care, call Danville Chiropractic Neurology and find out if functional neurology is right for you.

What should I expect during functional neurology treatments?

Functional neurology treatments begin with a comprehensive assessment. While thorough, a functional neurology exam is noninvasive and gentle. Even patients who have anxiety or sensory sensitivities feel comfortable throughout assessment and treatment. 

Additionally, throughout the evaluation, Dr. Thompson carefully observes your posture, faulty eye movements, tics, and alignment. Every aspect of your body and behavior provide clues to your neurological dysfunction.

When Dr. Thompson completes your assessment, she creates a customized treatment plan. Your treatment plan combines physical medicine and neurological rehabilitation techniques to normalize and optimize your functionality. For example, your treatment plan may include:

  • Physiotherapy
  • Chiropractic care
  • Balancing activities
  • Rotary activation
  • Eccentric fast stretching
  • Cross cord mechanisms
  • Sensory therapy including light, sound, and smell

Dr. Thompson provides stimulations and treatments to address your needs and adjusts them as you recover, and your functionality is restored. She may change your therapies during every visit, depending on your needs.
