Treatment & Diagnostics

Functional medicine is a relatively new, cutting-edge term that describes a continuum of health in which the traditional definitive line between health and disease has been stretched to include most of the population which is neither completely healthy nor diseased. This type of medicine has been around for years and has been recently gaining notoriety due to the number of growing patients whom are left undiagnosed, starving for a therapy to address their particular symptoms. In essence, this model is based on neurological and biochemical individuality. Just as two cars which are made in the same factory fail to run identically, so do our bodies all function somewhat uniquely.

The main premise of functional medicine is to assess an individual’s current neurophysiology, musculoskeletal status, and biochemistry to determine where the malfunctioning regions reside. Subsequently, an individualized treatment plan is constructed targeting these under functioning regions utilizing advanced, neurological, physical therapy, and nutritional rehabilitative mechanisms. The treatment is appropriate for your particular brain and body. The treatment that worked for your friend may not work for you. This is why an individualized assessment is so important. This plan of action applies to any particular symptom pattern from low back pain to dizziness to sports injuries.
