What is functional neurology?
Typically, a functional neurologist serves in the same consulting manner as a medical neurologist. The difference is that the therapies of a functional neurologist do not include drugs or surgery.
At Seacrest, we see patients with movement disorders, dystonia, post-stroke rehabilitation, and radiculopathy or nerve entrapment syndromes that are consequences of peripheral or central types of lesions.
"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest her or his patients in the care of the human frame, in a proper diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease." - Thomas A. Edison
Functional Neurology
Dr. Rogers is a board certified functional neurologist, which means he has completed years of extra study to become a specialist in treating neurological-based health problems without the use of drugs or surgery. These conditions include:
  • Pain syndromes (such as fibromyalgia)
  • Learning and attention disorders (such as ADD, ADHD, autism)
  • Headaches (migraines and cervicogenic "pain of neck origin" headaches)
  • Vertigo (dizziness and vestibular conditions as well as rehabilitation)
  • Movement disorders (such as dystonia)
  • Developmental disorders (such as retained primitive reflexes)
  • Nerve injury and spinal cord injury
  • Head injury or stroke
  • Cognitive disorders (mental fogginess, forgetfulness)
  • When you visit a functional neurologist, you'll be asked about your current concerns, past health, lifestyle, job and family. Then, a thorough neurologic exam is performed to evaluate:
  • Is each area of the nervous system working?
  • Are areas stable, unstable or sluggish?
  • Can improvements be made by using more healthy areas?
  • Can treatment be used to stimulate areas needing improvement?
  • The exam is followed by therapeutic trial — a possible treatment is used, and then you are retested to see its affect.
    Treatments. Nerve cells need fuel and stimulation to thrive, so treatment uses activities that have been shown by scientific research to activate nerve cells: (1) specific adjustments to joints, (2) eye exercises, (3) breathing exercises, (4) light, sound, smell, touch, (5) balance activities, (6) nutritional modification, (7) physical exercises, and (8) cognitive exercises. Our care is safe, closely monitored and often fun.
    A key element of success (especially for those who have failed with other types of care) is that rehabilitation is not programmed. It is based specifically on the findings of the patient’s exam and response to therapeutic trial. Therapies are constantly evaluated with pre and post testing as the patient progresses.
