Chiropractic neurology/functional neurology is the most advanced form of chiropractic care available. At ProNeuro Health, we help the brain and body function beyond expectations by relieving symptoms at the source through functional neurology.
Only diplomates of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board are recognized as functional neurologists due to extensive coursework and examination by the American Medical Association.
By definition chiropractic neurology is a field of functional neurology that involves the internal and external parts of the body and environment in a scientific, structured, and targeted approach. The implementation of chiropractic neurology positively affects the neuraxis (the central nervous system consisting of the brain and spinal cord) as well as physiology and behavior. Because the nervous system controls every cell, nerve, tissue, and organ in the body the condition of the nervous system can positively and negatively impact your "whole being."
We are trained to treat the same health impairments and symptoms that chiropractors treat, including pinched nerves, muscle spasms, carpal tunnel, and TMJ. Even more importantly, we effectively treat the same ailments and symptoms that medical neurologists treat, such as cluster and tension headaches, migraines, Autism, Pervasive development Disorder (PDD), Oppositional Defiant Disorder (ODD), ADHD, post-concussion symptoms and syndrome, Parkinson's, and Tourette's syndrome.
Functional Neurology Testing
Not only does ProNeuro Health Brain and Wellness Center provide elite testing, Dr. Ruben St. Laurent uses the testing to address the root causes of dysfunction and not just the symptoms.
We provide vestibular testing and vestibular rehabilitation for patients suffering from concussions, dizziness, vertigo, balance and/or coordination problems, history of falls, scoliosis, tinnitus (ringing in the ears), and more. Fortunately, these symptoms can improve with vestibular testing and rehabilitation. Proper functioning of our vestibular system is essential for safety, performance, and everyday living.
Metabolic Functional Testing
Our chiropractic office will send out lab work for various aspects of your health such as neurotransmitter or brain chemistry imbalances, thyroid and/or adrenal function, hormones, blood sugar, cholesterol, anemia, digestion concerns, gluten sensitivity, food allergies, heavy metal sensitivity, immune and inflammation concerns, as well as nutritional testing. To restore proper balance within the body, our chiropractor, Dr. St. Laurent will recommend and supply patients with only the necessary supplements his or her body needs as well as advice about dietary and lifestyle changes.
Brain and Nervous System Functional Testing
Utilizing chiropractic neurology, Dr. St. Laurent evaluates, assesses, and treats many neurological disorders and associated dysfunction such as depression, anxiety, mental, behavioral, and emotional disorders, tics and tremors, narcolepsy, migraines, auditory and visual processing deficiencies, lack of focus, and chronic pain.
We help people who suffer from an array of conditions without invasive procedures or drugs. We use numerous therapies such as sensory integration, cognitive therapy, neurological exercises, proprioceptive therapy, vestibular rehabilitation, chiropractic manipulation, neuromuscular re-education, manual and decompression traction, intersegmental traction, and other modalities. These therapies are often paired with neurotransmitter therapy alongside any necessary and nutritional supplements. After medically diagnosed neurotransmitter imbalances are detected and identified, we balance the brain chemistry to stimulate the brain to function properly and optimally.
Dr. St. Laurent is a chiropractor who uses neurology, chiropractic, and only peer reviewed research to ensure his patients progress and overcome their health concerns.
