How We Can Help
Stangel Functional Neurology specializes in the evaluation and treatment of the NEUROLOGICAL COMPONENTS of many health related conditions.
Headaches and body pains are oftentimes perceived as a fairly simple problem that can be corrected with over-the-counter pain killers, anti-inflammatory meds, etc.
While in some cases these do offer relief, there are a large majority of pain syndromes that persist and go unanswered by conventional methods.
Pain is a highly complex neurological process involving a number of stopping points that run from the actual site of the pain to the spinal cord and brainstem and end up in the highest areas of the human brain.
- Tension Headaches
- Migraine Headaches
- Cluster Headaches
- Trigeminal Neuralgia
- Trauma Induced
- Autonomic Cephalalgia

These days, most of us have had a personal encounter with someone who has a condition like Autism. Current research confirms that Autism and associated conditions like ADHD and Dyslexia are increasing at an alarming rate.
The good news is that these conditions, by definition, are not purely passed down through genetics that can’t be helped or even corrected. In fact, this information indicates the ability to make improvements and corrections in many of these conditions.
- Learning Disabilities
- Pervasive Developmental Delay
- Sensory Processing Disorder
Current research indicates that the Nervous System, Immune System, and even the Endocrine (Hormonal) systems don’t operate independently of each other but rather, are intimately connected in their function and effect on each other.
A skilled Functional Neurologist will perform a comprehensive history and examination that will indicate whether or not the nervous system is part of or generating any problems.
This information will then be used to help design appropriate treatment recommendations in order to correct those problems.

- Gluten Sensitivity
- Inflammatory Bowel Disorders
