Functional neurology is a treatment approach for various neurological disorders. In general, they treat brain injury patients, degenerative disorders (such as dementia), movement disorders, vestibular challenges (i.e. balance and dizziness issues), or any other neurological disease or disorder of unknown origin (typically something that traditional doctors have not been able to diagnose and treat successfully). However, each clinician may have their own subspecialties. Functional neurology may use some combination of brain-based rehabilitative exercises, chiropractic manipulation, other rehabilitative modalities (electrical stimulation, soft tissue mobilization, etc) and recommended lifestyle changes (diet, supplementation, exercise, etc.).
Traditional medical neurology treats neurological disease or pathology with the use of drugs and surgery. While this may work for some patients, others feel that it doesn’t fully address the root cause. Functional neurology looks at the dysfunction in the nervous system, even before this is a medical diagnosis, and aims to treat a broader array of brain dysfunction through receptor or brain-based rehabilitative therapy.
Functional Neurology works on the approach of NEUROPLASTICITY, which is the ability for the brain and nervous system to change in response to physical, emotional, and environmental stimuli. Our doctors then combine this with their extensive knowledge of the nervous system to activate pathways to the brain and create long term positive changes and reduce symptoms. To learn more information about this treatment approach, check out this recent review of functional neurology. To see this care in action, you can watch this short video from ABC News Nightline where it was featured.
Functional neurology could be used to treat a variety of conditions, including:

Use of Colloidal Oatmeal Soap Can Reduce Symptoms of Atopic Dermatitis Topical colloidal oatmeal (CO) can reduce local inflammation, itching, and a number of other indications, at low cost and with minimal side effects.
Insight Research Institute conducted a study to test whether the addition of CO to cold-processed vegetable oil soap could significantly clear overt symptoms of atopic eczema within two weeks of use. Our results showed soothing, anti-inflammatory, and anti-pruritic effects suggesting the efficacy of using this soap as a treatment for atopic dermatitis.

Healthcare Associated Infections
Improved control and reduction of healthcare-associated infections (HAI) are perpetual concerns in hospitals and other healthcare settings, including non-hospital residential facilities such as nursing homes and correctional facilities.
A recent review of epidemiological studies on the incidence of MRSA infections has indicated that taken as a whole, there may be no definitive evidence that their incidence is declining significantly. Indeed, contradictions between source studies suggest the need for a comprehensive tracking system, while underscoring the motivation to perform such studies, i.e., nosocomial infections, including MRSA, Clostridium difficile, and others, undermine the therapeutic mission of healthcare facilities. The advent of antibiotic-resistant bacterial strains illustrates pathogens’ persistence in the face of powerful, highly specific chemical agents.
At Insight Research Institute, we are evaluating the safety and effectiveness of a device that produces oxygen-free radicals on sample slides containing MRSA in hospital patient rooms. Our preliminary results are promising and showing a reduction in some types of infections.
