Functional Neurology

Functional Neurology is a science-based diagnostic and treatment technology that builds a bridge between traditional medical methods and what we now know about effective brain injury treatment. Recovery from Concussion / Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Whiplash is often slowed by nerve interference, which is essentially a disruption in the communication between the brain and the body.

“Physicians can significantly improve patient outcomes when concussion/ traumatic brain injury (TBI) is suspected or diagnosed by implementing early management and appropriate referral.”
– Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)

The functional neurologist utilizes the most current knowledge about how the brain and nervous system function to identify where nerve disruption is occurring. They offer treatment methods that eliminate the interference, without drugs or surgery. Recovery from concussion and whiplash is possible now, even if your accident occurred years before. Functional Neurology methods provide immediate “real time feedback” from your brain and body to the functional neurologist. This biological feedback allows the functional neurologist to design customized treatments for your specific symptoms and adjust them during each visit according to what your body needs to further its healing.

Dr. Lawrence Nelson is a Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist practicing functional neurology in addition to traditional chiropractic care. He will combine functional neurology and chiropractic treatments with “homework” personalized for your situation to facilitate your body’s innate healing systems, which will help you heal faster and more completely from concussion / traumatic brain injury (TBI) and whiplash.

Chiropractic Care

Gentle chiropractic adjustments and advanced spinal correction techniques are a must for successful recovery from your concussion / TBI and whiplash. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide their patients with the level of knowledge and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before.
Dr. Lawrence Nelson has years of training and experience in helping patients accelerate their recovery from concussion / TBI, whiplash and many other diagnoses. He utilizes the most advanced chiropractic techniques to expertly help you gain relief from headaches, neck pain, back pain and other related conditions originating from injury to your head and spine. His chiropractic care can also prevent future injuries and help you achieve optimum health and wellness.

Acupuncture

Our Licensed Acupuncturists offer an incredibly effective healing tool to assist in recovery from concussion / TBI and whiplash. A very safe treatment benefitting patients worldwide, acupuncture is currently used widely throughout the United States.

Using specific points on the body’s energy pathways (meridians), hair-thin needles are painlessly inserted to improve your energy flow and re-balance your mind and body. These sessions will reduce headaches, neck and back pain and other pain related to your injury.
Acupuncture, when coupled with functional neurology, chiropractic, massage and exercise will often produce amazing results, demonstrating the synergistic benefits of blending these health disciplines.

Brain Nutrition and Nutritional Therapy

At Concussion and Whiplash Clinic we provide dietary options for recovery based upon the latest scientific information, including our brain recovery dietary program.
This unique program significantly increases the available energy to heal your brain, spine and nervous system. Additionally, our brain recovery dietary program reduces tissue inflammation, relieving your symptoms and accelerating your recovery from concussion / TBI and whiplash.

Corrective Exercises

At Concussion and Whiplash Clinic we teach our patients how to perform special “neurologically integrated” exercises and self-management skills. This training empowers our patients, reestablishing effective connections between your brain and body.

Headaches, neck pain and back pain are often caused by compensatory changes when coping with injury. These additional stresses interfere with normal neurological function and skeletal alignment, prolonging recovery. Exercises and self-management skills allow you to positively influence your own recovery and reduce your pain.

These corrective exercises, performed in the comfort of your own home, will help improve the effectiveness of your care at the office and accelerate your recovery. In each case, targeted corrective exercises, stretches and self-management skills taught by our experienced team will help you to feel your best as your body achieves balance and health.

Wellness Coaching

While many patients come to our clinic to address “post-concussion syndrome,” associated with concussion / TBI and whiplash, others come to address specific pain symptoms such as headaches, neck pain, back pain and other related conditions. While our health care providers will address each patient’s specific condition, we often find it helpful to “coach” our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle.

For example, there may be activities you should avoid or do differently to avoid unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including Health and Wellness Coaching with your care plan is to help every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they desire. We recognize that each one of our patients is a unique, whole person. We use our expertise to not only help them recover.
