Neuroplasticity and Your Nervous System

A Functional Medicine Approach to the Nervous System?

“The human nervous system controls, regulates and coordinates all of the functions of the body.” This quote from the anatomy textbook, Grey’s Anatomy, reminds us of the profound importance of having a functional nervous system. Indeed, health and well-being starts with a healthy nervous system.

With a functional and holistic, medicine approach, treatments can help the nervous system overcome dysfunction and repair itself through harnessing neuroplasticity. This term refers to the ability of the brain and spinal cord cells to create new connections with each other, and sometimes new cells altogether.

Some of the Specific Neurological Issues We See?

All of our many treatment approaches are designed to have a positive effect on the health and function of the nervous system.

The following list of conditions are well suited to the care given through our Spine Center and Brain Center.

  • Traumatic Brain Injuries
  • Concussions
  • Strokes
  • Transient Ischemic Attacks (TIA)
  • Anxiety
  • Depression
  • Insomnia

  • Multiple Sclerosis (MS)
  • Equilibrium disturbances
  • Vertigo
  • Dizziness
  • Fear of falling
  • Vestibular Neuritis
  • Labrynthitis
  • Parkinson’s

How do we treat people with these disorders?

At CHC, we offer a wide range of holistically based treatments and therapies. There are a number of additional treatment methods that are especially helpful when addressing the neurological issues listed above.

Either way, we use state of the art therapeutic treatment methods, from a holistic perspective, to challenge the nervous system. This encourages the development of new neural pathways. 

  • Interactive Metronome
  • Transcranial Stimulation
  • Coordination Exercises
  • Manipulative Therapy 

How long are typical courses of treatment? 

Research has shown that neuroplasticity is developed through repetition. Treatment schedules and courses of care are, therefore, developed accordingly. The nervous system is very complex and each individual will respond uniquely.

What improvements can we expect?

Goals of treatment are based on each patient’s current conditions and his or her individual needs. Goals are developed individually and improvement is measured periodically throughout the course of care. Some of the improvements commonly seen in response to treatment include improved memory, coordination, and cognition.
