Chiropractic Care and Functional Neurology
The nervous system controls every function of human health. To properly control this function, the nervous system requires appropriate signaling coming in and going out without interference. When neurological interference is present, you may experience pain, inflammation, or muscle tension in the short term, and long-standing neurological interference may manifest as degeneration or disease.
Neurologically-based chiropractic care removes this interference to restore normal signaling and improve the brain’s ability to control the function of the body. While this care is not intended to treat any one disease or dysfunction, an improved nervous system can allow the body to heal itself from any number of diseases.
Chiropractic care extends these improvements beyond a state of dysfunction or disease, and research shows improved performance in a variety of measures. These include strength output and coordination. Wherever you may find yourself in your pursuit of health, chiropractic care can help you along the way.
Certain situations call for a more comprehensive approach to restoring appropriate neurological health and performance. Functional neurology utilizes the understanding of brain development, anatomy, connectivity, and neuroplasticity (the brain’s ability to change throughout life) to develop specific rehabilitation strategies for improving brain health.
This approach can be effective for a wide range of conditions, beginning with neurodevelopmental delays in children, brain injuries at any age, and neurodegenerative conditions in older adults. This approach can be utilized for performance enhancement in sport, school, or work.
