With the post graduate degree in functional neurology through the Carrick Institute for Graduate Studies we learn how to perform a functional neurological exam that may be similar to a medical neurologist exam however we do not prescribe drugs or perform surgery. We use this knowledge and work to develop natural treatment plans that are appropriate to the individuality of the patient and his or her nervous system. We use very specific therapies and Chiropractic techniques as well as the use of other functional neurology modalities with the goal of restoring balance to the nervous system and musculoskeletal system.
