FUNCTIONAL NEUROLOGY TREATMENT

THE NEURO WEEK INTENSIVE

Your personalized Neuro Week Intensive is designed to be a five-day rehabilitation experience which utilizes a customized plan to address your unique condition. A patient is typically seen for three visits per day for 5 days. During a visit, you will spend 30 minutes with your doctor performing various exercises, followed by 15 minutes with of supportive therapies. You will then have a 15 minute break before your next visit. Your doctor will often utilize various therapeutic modalities, which may include:

  • Gaze stabilization on moving targets
  • Coordinated upper and lower extremity movements (passive and active)
  • Tactile therapies
  • Gait therapy about stationary objects
  • Convergence/divergence eye exercises using Brock Beads
  • Map targeting using a Motion Guidance Head Laser
  • Microcurrent electrical stimulation
  • iPad exercises using Focus Builder
  • Chiropractic manipulative therapy
While we do have patients that return for additional care, 80% of individuals only need to be seen for 5 days. At the end of your Week Intensive, your doctor will give you a specific Home Exercise Program (HEP) that must be followed to promote long term potentiation (hard wiring your neuroplastic changes). Your doctor will make a recommendation for continued care with your primary doctor or therapist, and whether future visits at SWBPC would be beneficial to you. Usually, this only requires a visit every 4-12 weeks for periodic re-evaluations and adjustments to your HEP.

PATIENT RESPONSIBILITY AND OTHER CONSIDERATIONS

Although the bulk of the treatment plan involves in-office visits, an even greater percentage of the work will be done at home by you, the patient. The HEP will involve exercises similar to what you performed in the office and are designed to cultivate maximum recovery.

It may also be necessary to address other considerations as well. For instance, you may be asked to modify your diet to support your recovery, which may involve dramatic changes. In addition, the use of supplementation to decrease inflammation or improve other functions may also be suggested.

While everything that our doctors offer is completely voluntary, we have found that patients who comply with our recommendations experience the maximum benefit during their recovery. We have seen some truly remarkable success here at SWBPC and would love to see you achieve similar improvement!

Don’t let your symptoms hold you back.
