Functional Neurology in Healthcare
Dr. Martin uses a functional neurology model of healthcare on most of his patients. Functional Neurology is a system in which many measurable variables (such as heart rate, respiration, motor output of muscles, EEG analysis, sensory testing, posture, reflexes, vibration sense, etc.) are use to determine if a functional loss is present. A functional loss represents altered/impaired nervous system performance. If a functional loss is present, it is then determined where the loss stems from (such as brain, cerebellum, peripheral nerves, etc).
Many neurologically based symptoms can be managed with functional neurology. The treatments include: light stimulation, sound stimulation, specific eye movements, specifics exercises, calorics, neurofeedback/neurointegration, and specific spinal adjustments.

- Neurobehavioral Disorders
