What Does A Functional Neurology Appointment Look Like?
We start with a FULL HISTORY. You’ve been through a lot! We need to listen to you in order to know your experience, so we can help. Specifically we want to know: What’s going on? How long has this gone on for? and What have you done? This gets us started on figuring out the million+ piece puzzle that is your brain.
Next we complete a NEUROLOGICAL EXAMINATION. Your brain is a sensory-motor organ so we need to test different parts of this system to see what part of your brain and nervous system is injured and not working properly. There are several textbooks on the neurologic examination, the exam we perform is the same however instead of looking mainly for pathology we are looking for how the system is breaking down.
TREATMENT. After we have gathered a lot of information about your brain and nervous system, it is time to see what changes we can make. The nervous system is the fastest communication system in the body so we can see right away what changes are happening. If there is a positive change it is a matter of getting the right combination of therapies at the right intensity, frequency and duration to make a lasting change.
