Most of us have had our lives affected by a family member or friend who may have some sort of Brain Injury. More often than not this comes in the form of a stroke but can be from many other causes as listed above. Stroke and Brain Injury can cause a dizzying array of symptoms that include weakness, paralysis, loss of feeling, cognitive difficulties, depression, and emotional instability among many other symptoms.
In most of these conditions there is, at the very least, some physical damage to an area or multiple areas of the brain. So what can be done to overcome this damage and help with the symptoms? The human brain has been shown to be incredibly malleable and in many cases one area of the brain can compensate or take over the function of another area of the brain that has been damaged. Functional Neurology may be the very best option for those who suffer from Brain Injuries.
A skilled Functional Neurologist is well trained in these particular pathologies, but more importantly, they are even more knowledgeable about how different areas of the brain work together. This gives the Functional Neurologist a unique skill set to assess and treat Brain injuries. In addition, any other factors that might be affecting these conditions such as diabetes, anemia, inflammation, etc. will be addressed as the neurological systems are dependent on an appropriately functioning biochemical system to operate properly.
