Dr. Harvey W. Stern practices functional neurology which is a modality that aims to integrate all of the brain’s sensory activities in order to treat a variety of clinical and subclinical symptoms. This modality draws from a number of complementary and alternative health therapies. Advocates claim that correcting neurological problems and restoring functionality in the body may be possible by participating in a variety of exercises whose aim is neurological integration. These exercises involve specific forms of or exposure to movement, scent, sound, light, and touch. Drugs and surgery are not a part of this modality and all treatments take place in Dr. Stern’s Slate Hill, NY office.

Chiropractic neurology focuses on the idea that certain body movements, as well as cognitive and musculoskeletal tasks may be difficult if a person’s brain is not “integrated”. Advocates claim that when the body’s neurological processes are not integrated, the brain does not function as one unit. Because of this, the patient experiences a variety of symptoms as a result of this lack of neurological coordination. Treatment consists of exercises and tasks intended to exercise and retrain the patient’s nervous system to function in a healthier manner.

Functional neurology has its origin in a variety of chiropractic techniques, many of which deal with the nervous system. The modality also incorporates ideas of the acupuncture meridian system, which are the lines of energy that direct all of the body’s function in the traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) system of health and healing. Further, functional neurology has been influenced by other areas of biomedical study, including embryology, neurology, neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, neuropsychology, psychology, cellular biology, biochemistry, and genetics.

Individuals seek functional neurology for a variety of conditions, including autism, Asperger’s syndrome, attention deficit disorder, obsessive compulsive disorder, Tourette’s syndrome, dyslexia, dyscalculia, strabismus, brain injury, vertigo, motion sickness, dizziness, resting intention tremors, Parkinson’s disease, and Parkinsonian syndromes. In addition, advocates claim that functional neurology may treat subclinical symptoms and syndromes.

Functional neurology may offer a less expensive alternative to the medications, procedures, and other types of treatments usually given in conventional medicine.
