Functional medicine is integrative, preventative, research oriented and globally focused. The central training of functional medicine is physiology, and that is what makes it truly presentative. By understanding how the personal environment causes metabolic dysfunction, we learn strategies to prevent disease.
The key to good preventive healthcare is integration. Preventative medicine involves functionally assessing the nervous system while also integrating the relationships of the immune, cardiovascular, endocrine, and structural systems of the body. A functional medicine practitioner considers lifestyle, activities, diet, genetics and stress to personalize healthcare for each individual. To learn more visit our Functional Medicine page.
The foundation of chiropractic care is to adjust the spine, the bridge between the body and brain, providing nerves with nourishment and ensuring vital communications are functioning optimally. This is important for alleviating pain in acute conditions, reprogramming trauma stored in the nervous system, improving organ function in chronic conditions, enhancing athletic performance and preventing future injury. Adjustments are also important for nervous system health. This system manages all signals traveling from the body to the brain, allowing you to interpret your environment.
With the use of Applied Kinesiology, our chiropractors test the integrity of your nervous system to determine where the spine is out of place, and the stability of all the joints of your body. It can also be used to see tension in your soft tissues, which affects your ability to hold adjustments. This approach to chiropractic is something we feel gives the best adjustment results, because it is the most accurate way to know exactly where to adjust, and only adjusting when it is truly needed.

Functional Methylation Technique (Genetic Health)
Functional Methylation technique was created by Dr. Jared Allomong. It is extremely useful for understanding genetic risks of cardiovascular disease, Alzheimer’s, anxiety, depression, autoimmunity and more. Functional Methylation combines symptom questionnaires, a genetic report from your personalized genetic data, and the use of a kinesiology kit to assess the expression of genetic biochemistry. Together through these tools we can create personalized lifestyle and supplement recommendations tailored directly to your biochemistry.
Neuro Emotional Technique is a life changing, impactful emotional therapy. NET calms subconscious driven reactions to emotionally triggering situations, thus allowing a person to make better decisions and acting with intention opposed to reacting. NET uses Applied Kinesiology to test whether the subconscious mind is in agreement with the conscious mind. It helps to alleviate the overwhelm of emotional triggers by removing the intensity and negative physiologic response that powerful emotions have created. If you want to read more visit our NET page.
Through 15 years of practice we have integrated a combination of therapies because they have continually proven to create significant changes in our patients' health. These therapies include: cold laser therapy for neurological stimulation; warm laser therapy for soft tissue injury and neuropathy; lumbar and cervical traction for disc injury and degeneration; neurofeedback therapy for concussion, brain injury recovery and cognitive optimization; PEMF therapy for vascular health and injury recovery; dry needling for pain and muscle tension; hyperbaric therapy for chronic fatigue, healing, and neurological health.
The nervous system is very complex and thus needs an integrative approach with different points of assessment. At the Functional Health Center we have several tools that work together to assess and strengthen the nervous system. A neurological evaluation can include a chiropractic neurological exam, a quantum neurology examination, a QEEG brain wave map and neurotransmitter and neuro-inflammatory lab testing. Proper assessment and cutting edge tools like Warm Laser Therapy, hyperbaric oxygen therapy and personalized supplement and nutrition protocols can be used to address neuropathy, memory loss or chronic brain fog.
