CALLING ALL BRAIN-HEALTH-ONAUTS IN THE DENVER AREA!
I am writing this blog to introduce you to an incredible field of healthcare that has been revolutionizing the way we understand and optimize brain function – Functional Neurology. Prepare to embark on a fascinating journey through the intricate workings of the human brain and discover how it can unlock your full potential!
You might be wondering, “What exactly is Functional Neurology?” Well, it’s a branch of neurology that focuses on the assessment and treatment of the nervous system to optimize its function. Unlike traditional neurology that predominantly deals with pathology and disease, Functional Neurology delves deeper into understanding the interconnectedness of the brain, nervous system, and body as a whole.
By employing cutting-edge diagnostic techniques and evidence-based therapies, Functional Neurology aims to identify and address underlying functional imbalances in the nervous system. The brain is an extraordinary problem-solving organ that constantly adapts and evolves, and Functional Neurology harnesses this inherent plasticity to promote healing and improve overall well-being.
Neuroplasticity: Use it or Lose it!
Neuroplasticity is the phenomenon that the brain changes it’s structure, function, and chemistry based on experiences and inputs. What fires together is wired together. This help prepare it for the potential “next time”. Neuroplasticity can be positive- using alternate pathways to re-establish function like speech and motor control or improve reaction speed and executive function. It can also be negative or Nociplactic- linking acute pain signals to movement, once the damaged tissue is healed the pain remains with movement because.. What fires together is wired together.
So, how can Functional Neurology help you? I’m glad you asked! Let me count the ways..
