Functional Neurology

Course Description

Interested in the incorporation of Neurology into patient analysis? This course explores nerve signaling, four of the main spinal cord pathways, muscle contraction principles, reflex types and the posture system. Each Practitioner is unique in their personal technique, this course will assist practitioners to be more equipped to evaluate each patient before and after their technique is applied. These procedures are a great foundation in which to build upon, inevitably some patients will need further testing. However this course will provide doctors with the framework to guide them to the proper diagnosis or into further advanced testing if necessary.
