Functional Neurology In Spring, TX

Conventional neurology tends to measure pathologies as black-and-white with one side being normal function and the other being stark neurologic disease such as strokes, tumors, and other gross changes. Many of our patients suffering, whether from symptoms of low thyroid, abdominal irregularities, headaches, balance problems, or cognitive decline, etc, walk away from their doctor without answers to their health challenges because their blood tests are considered “normal” or other tests come up negative.

Functional neurology instead sees dysfunction of the nervous system as a spectrum of colors and shades looking for subtle changes that impede the patient even before they turn into blatant pathology. We ask more questions, use more detailed neurological exams, look at related systems of the body as they may contribute to the primary complaint, and test more blood markers. In order to treat the person and the cause as a whole we have to see the person and the cause in context.

Brain Dysfunction and neurological deficits many times are overlooked by conventional practitioners since these things don’t show up on an MRI or in a “normal” blood range until the disease process is past the point of no return. At this point the treatment options are reduced managing the condition while the disease process gets worse and worse. Integrated Functional medicine doctors look deeper in the the blood labs and look at more markers even comparing multiple systems of the body pinpointing which areas of the brain and body have deficits and then using a comprehensive approach to solving the problem.
