Functional Neurology (FN) is an empirical approach using existing modern diagnostic equipment. An innovative and broad view of care involving innovative therapies be put into practice for patients with symptoms of neurological nature.
The functional neurological graduates (DACNB or DACAN) bring the latest insights into the diagnosis and treatment together. Functional Neurology would be seen in the future can be seen as the new view on the health of the nervous system and the brain.
- Innovative health care and rehabilitation for the brain and nerves
- Specialists in the function of the nervous system
- Strengthened by science and measurable results
- Proactive (preventive) opportunities for improvement.
Because everyone is unique, an individual treatment plan for you prepared with the shortcomings and/or limitations be portrayed through a thorough case history, physical and neurological examination and any added testing.
Your treatment will consist of various techniques applied by your practitioner probably in combination with specific home exercises. The combination of techniques and exercises provides a regular stimulus of the affected/weaker part which strengthening can take place. Repetition is of great interest in the grind of a renewed position within the nervous system.
Sometimes it may be decided to step up the intensity of the treatment so that there are several treatments per day be executed with as underlying goal faster and better results. Progress will be measured and also provides an important form of feedback to further optimize treatment.
- Personal treatment plan.
- Progression is frequently measured
- Treatment plan is frequently updated.
- Training in balance
- Training in eye motion
Physical and neurological examination
FN research helps us determine the degree of disturbance and neurological performance. It begins with a thorough physical examination movement, running analysis and neurological examination. Likewise can possibly balance (CAPS/Pondera), timing (IM), motor precision and eye motion (VNG) be tested.
- Movement Research: flexibility, functionality
- Pattern in walking
- Power, sense and reflexes
- Cranial nerf tests (eyes, throat, ears, face)
- Eye motion
