Functional Neurological Rehabilitation

Making Miracles

Doctors and patients agree that Functional Neurological Rehabilitation is a Step-by-Step method to Making Miracles. It is a collection of patented techniques that evaluate and restore every major nerve in the body. This systematic treatment makes the body function more efficiently allowing previously wasted energy to be use for healing. Functional Neurological Rehabilitation does not treat any conditions. More importantly, Functional Neurological Rehabilitation focuses on up-regulating the nerves that may be associated to a condition so that the body heals itself. Functional Neurological Rehabilitation is a technique that improves the way the nerves activate. If you can visualize a muscle or organ being controlled by a dimmer switch, you may be able to understand how 10 different people with the exact same injury/condition can each have a unique level of dysfunction. In many cases the muscle or organ may be only slightly dimmed with minimal symptoms of pain, decreased range of motion, decreased strength and impaired organ function. And in other instances it may be completely dimmed, causing devastating conditions of debilitating pain, paralysis, and poor organ function. In any case, the Functional Neurological rehabilitation treatment is similar regardless of the level of dysfunction. It is important to remember that Functional Neurological Rehabilitation is a technique that maximizes the ability for a nerve to activate. This treatment can be directed to specific nerve groups to help patients with certain conditions. For example: the foot is controlled by the spinal cord segments of S1, L5 and L4 (S stands for sacrum or commonly called our tailbone, L stands for lumbar or low back). If anyone has ANY condition affecting the foot (Sprained ankle, diabetic ulcer on the foot, plantar fasciitis, hammer toes, broken foot, heel spurs, etc…) One or more of these nerves are affected and by up-regulating these nerves the function will return and the conditions/symptoms improve if not completely disappear. Functional Neurological Rehabilitation practitioners often report success treating patients with various conditions including but not limited to:

  • Sports Injury: Muscle and joint pain, decreased range of motion
  • Brain Injury: Stroke, paralysis, bells palsy, speech and swallowing dysfunction
  • Spinal cord injury: paralysis, sensory and motor injury
  • Auto Immune: Rheumatoid Arthritis, Multiple Sclerosis, Gullian-Barre
  • Joint & bone injury: broken bones, decreased joint space, ligament tears, post surgery

What Does a Functional Neurological Rehabilitation Treatment Feel Like?

Plug-In the Nerve Supply
Functional Neurological Rehabilitation is a safe non-invasive technique that will allow the doctor to evaluate and up-regulate every major nerve in the patients’ body. The recommended protocol involves the initial Functional Neurological Rehabilitation Spinal Evaluation which is a specific series of upper and lower body muscle strength tests designed to evaluate the entire spinal cord. If a weakness is found, the doctor may ask the patient to stabilize specific areas of the spine, head or abdomen in order to correct each muscle weakness. The doctor has been trained in various methods of correction including manual, instrument and light therapy techniques. This technique will activate every major nerve in the body. If we were to make the analogy of the nerve being a phone line; this is similar to making sure the phone line is plugged-in to each area of the body. After the Functional Neurological Rehabilitation Spinal Evaluation and Correction most people experience an immediate reduction of pain and an increased sense of stability.

Removing Static from the Nerve Supply

After the Functional Neurological Rehabilitation Spinal Evaluation, the doctor may choose to treat the entire body in sequence or focus on a specific area, depending on the patient’s condition and goals. The suggested protocol involves finding and treating hidden neurological weaknesses called POI weaknesses. POI stands for Point of Interruption, and is referring to a specific point within the body that disables communication within the nervous system when a certain movement or function is activated. Using the phone analogy in the above paragraph, this is similar to picking up the phone and removing any static that may be on the line. This unique way of testing forces the body to recognize hidden weaknesses that are not found by traditional testing alone. POI weaknesses are often found in the nerves of the head (Cranial Nerves) which can cause a myriad of conditions such as TMJ dysfunction, vertigo, facial paralysis and pain, ADD/ADHD, speech and swallowing dysfunction and more. They can also be found in the body causing physical pain, dysfunction and decreased range of motion. Once the POI weakness is activated, the correction is simple and painless. After treatment, most patients report a euphoric feeling of floating and effortless movement and strength.

ATTENTION: Functional Neurological Rehabilitation is not a treatment or a cure; it is Functional Neurological Rehabilitation. Doctors often use the word treatment to describe their interaction with a patient, not to imply a cure for a patient’s Injury, Illness or Condition. Functional Neurological Rehabilitation uses traditional and unique neurological evaluations to perform before and after validation of neurological changes. Even though you may share the same symptoms as a patient mentioned on this website; each patient and their injury, illness or condition is unique. As with any form of rehabilitation; there is no way to predict or guarantee how you or anyone else will respond to functional neurological rehabilitation. Your results may vary.

Doctors and patients agree that Functional Neurological Rehabilitation can make miracles happen! Functional Neurological Rehabilitation is a brilliant, patented protocol . Put simply, Functional Neurological Rehabilitation is a collection of techniques that evaluate and restore every major nerve in the body--this systematic rehabilitation allows the body to function more efficiently, allowing previously wasted energy to be used for healing. More importantly, Functional Neurological Rehabilitation focuses on allowing nerves that may be associated with painful or debilitating injuries or conditions to reset or repair so that the body can heal itself.

Functional Neurological Rehabilitation

A safe non-invasive technique that allows the doctor to evaluate, correct, and re-evaluate every major nerve in the patients' body. This is accomplished with a specific series of upper and lower body muscle strength tests designed to evaluate the entire spinal cord. If a weakness is found, the doctor works with the patient to stabilize specific areas of the spine, head or abdomen in order to correct each muscle weakness. You can immediately feel your increased strength and range of motion! In fact, it's common that a person will feel substantial results in only a few weeks.

Dr. Jonathan Yalowchuk is one of the very first doctors in the United States to master Functional Neurological Rehabilitation. This has been the result of hundreds of classroom and private study hours in addition to his chiropractic training. During a Functional Neurological evaluation Dr Yalowchuk will identify the nerves in your body that are not functioning properly. He can then design a customized rehabilitation Functional Neurological ™evaluation protocol to address the unique needs and goals presented by each patient. Some conditions that have responded well with Functional Neurological Rehabilitation include; Chronic pain, Acute pain from injury or other causes, Frozen shoulder, Stroke damage, Bell's Palsy, Trigeminal Neuralgia, Carpal Tunnel syndrome, Incontinence and Sexual dysfunction resulting from prostate surgery, Recovery from hearing loss, Recovery from vision loss, Improved athletic performance, Improved vocal range and ability, High blood pressure and a host of others.
