Chiropractic Neurology is a new concept for many people, but it is gaining a tremendous amount of press lately because of Chiropractic Neurologist pioneer, Dr. Ted Carrick, founder of the Carrick Institute of Graduate Studies. In essence, functional neurology, also called chiropractic neurology, is the clinical evaluation and treatment method for the central and peripheral nervous system.
Both brain and body functions go hand-in-hand. There is always an abnormal motoric (muscle movement or tone) outcome when the brain that is not functioning as it ought. For example, in a person with Parkinson's disease there is a progressive destruction in the Basal Ganglia of the brain, specifically of the Substantia Nigra. The motoric outcome begins with stiffness, often in the shoulders, and with constipation due to less peristalsis of the intestinal track to move digested food out of the body. As Parkinson's progresses we see inability to initiate movement accompanied with tremors. Parkinson's is a disease of the brain that results in a specific type of movement disorder. Dysfunctions of neural pathways and systems within the whole nervous system (central and peripheral) have a dramatic impact on a person's whole health not just their motor system. Moving muscles, thinking and learning, emotions, pain, digesting, organ function, etc. are all controlled by these systems. Restoring function to the body's command center has the most impact on optimizing a patient's health and increasing their quality of life.

Why Choose Dr. Dane?
One of the reasons patients choose Functional Healthcare Solutions over other healthcare facilities is because Dr. Dane is trained to evaluate the neural pathways and systems and she takes a bird's eye view of the whole body knowing that everything is integrated. Many healthcare professionals fail to treat a person as an integrated whole and so they simply do not get the positive results that Dr. Dane does with her patients. The other main reason patients choose to treat with Dr. Dane is because they have been referred by another patient who has first-hand experienced a transformation of their own health. Dr. Dane's personal approach to evaluation and treatment incorporates the best of neuroscience, biochemistry, nutrition, and movement. Her approach includes comprehensive testing and assessments in order to accurately diagnose and then prescribe the appropriate treatment plan. It is important to realize that there is usually a metabolic and neurologic component to every health issue. It doesn't matter which came first! What matters is that BOTH be addressed.
Proper ongoing assessments are paramount to knowing whether or not treatments are working. Dr. Dane does ongoing assessments in order to guide her clinical treatments. The reason many doctors fail helping their patients is because they don't assess the effectiveness of their treatments in a measurable way. Relying only on subjective (patient's symptoms) is not enough. Measureable changes, such as, improved function and lab changes are the most important clinical indicators a doctor should use to mark progress.
