What Is Functional Neurology

Dr. Colin Bartoe with the Functional Neurology Chiropractic Center in Orlando, Florida explains what Functional Neurology is. Simply put, Functional Neurology is a technique used to find areas of the brain that may not be working right, and then to treat those areas. Functional Neurology can be used to help patients that suffer from a wide variety of symptoms or conditions such as balance disorders, concussion, stroke, movement disorders, dysautonomia and many more.One of the foundational elements of Functional Neurology is a concept called Neuroplasticity. This is the brain’s ability to adapt and change in response to use and challenges. We can intentionally use this ability to create better

 function in areas of the brain that are struggling or that have been injured. This approach is backed by mountains of peer-reviewed research and years of clinical application. Our community is also constantly working with major research institutions around the world to dig deeper into the function of the brain so we can better improve our service to humanity.At The Functional Neurology Chiropractic Center, an Orlando, FL chiropractic office, Dr. Colin Bartoe has been using Functional Neurology for years to help improve the quality of life for patients that often times cannot find help in traditional medical approaches. Our practitioners blend heart-felt care and with a combination of gentle chiropractic care, progressive therapies, and Functional Neurology to create an environment where patients are heard, cared for, and where results are paramount.

A Functional Neurology Look at Balance, Dizziness, and Vertigo

Here at FNCC, we are taking a look at balance, dizziness, and vertigo from a functional neurology standpoint! There are multiple inputs and avenues to the brain such as the eyes, ears, and body that play a role balance. As an Orlando chiropractor and functional neurologist, Dr. Bartoe is taking new approaches to treating the brain and the balance issues he sees in patients after car accidents and head injuries. Having a balance issue is not a condition you have to live with for the rest of your life!

Top 3 Things To Think About For Car Accidents

Car accidents can be stressful, painful, and expensive. Here are the top three things to consider when thinking about car accidents. As a Florida chiropractor for more than 7 years, Dr. Colin Bartoe has worked with many patients who have been involved in car accidents. He has seen a wide range of different types of medical conditions related to accidents and has worked alongside other professionals, like personal injury attorneys, to help these patients feel better, function better, and navigate the stress of life after an accident.

Concussions Are Unique

Dr. Bartoe describes how each concussion must be dealt with on an individual basis. Every concussion is unique, and because of this it is very important to have a doctor that deals with every patient in a way that is tailored to their specific needs. Functional neurology can help the brain to heal after a concussion and Dr. Bartoe creates specific plans for each patient based on what they need.

Recovery After a Concussion

Recovery from a concussion can vary between cases and there is no set timeframe for recovery. Dr. Bartoe emphasizes how the brain can form compensations mechanisms after an accident occurs, but this should not be confused with a full recovery. Compensations mechanisms are ways that the brain tries to work around the injury so that we can survive in our day to day lives, but because the injury is still there, they can cause issues later on. If you have experienced a concussion from a car accident, playing sports, or some other cause, please contact the Functional Neurology Chiropractic Center for more information.

Motion Guidance System

In today’s video Dr. Bartoe speaks about the benefits of motion guidance systems as a functional neurology tool. A motion guidance system is a fun technique that helps with muscular control, balance disorders, and concussion rehab. The use of a head laser provides feedback for the patient to observe smoothness of motion and their ability to hit a target. It’s also convenient because it can be used at home as well to continue the healing process!

Concussion Baseline Testing

What are baseline tests? Why are they important? How do baselines relate to concussions? There are so many commonly unanswered questions related to concussions and specifically about baseline testing. Here, Dr. Colin Bartoe goes through the basics os baselines so you have a better understanding of concussions and how you can prepare yourself or your student athlete for recovery. Concussions can happen in sports and in every day aspects of life like car accidents. Having a measurement of where your brain is at before an injury can help significantly in diagnosing and treating a concussion after the fact. That is why almost every sports organization requires their athletes to get baseline tests. Most of the time, these tests are just a computerized series of questions and tasks, but baselines can be so much more. At the Functional Neurology Chiropractic Center, we aim to help athletes prepare for the best recovery outcomes in the event that a concussion occurs.
