The aim of Functional Neurology is to improve the function of the brain and nervous system. The primary goal of the brain is movement and all movement is based on sensation. In functional neurology we assess the sensory and motor systems, looking for signs and symptoms of subtle or gross dysfunction. If any area of the nervous system is hypoactive, hyperactive or having trouble integrating information, treatment will be focused on trying to build neuroplasticity by repetitively activating the sensory and motor pathways. This may be through treatment in a clinical setting but will most likely involve rehab exercises for the patient to perform at home. The results are rapid and long lasting.
