'90% of the stimulation and nutrition to the brain is generated by the movement of the spine'.
Dr Roger Sperry (Nobel Prize Recipient)
Functional Neurology is an approach focused on understanding the relationship between the different areas of the nervous system and the body, and the effect of environmental stress on the nervous system. It is a holistic analysis of how your nervous system is sending and receiving information. Treatment based on this analysis aims at maximising the health of the nervous system and brain, to create balanced communication between areas of the brain as well as strong signalling through all neural pathways.
Nerve cells need fuel and stimulation to thrive. Treatment is aimed at providing these; it includes activities that have been shown (by scientific research, past case study, or immediate pre- and post-treatment testing) to activate nerve cells. Types of treatment include specific adjustments to joints, balance activities, exercises involving light, sound, smell or touch, nutritional modification and supplementation, eye exercises, physical exercises and cognitive exercises. These may also be given as home therapy as part of a neural rehabilitation program.
