Functional Neurology
By: Pettibon Institute

Course Description

This class is a class for doctors to refresh, revitalize and renew their sense of importance for the neurological evaluation of a patient. Doctor’s of Chiropractic speak highly of the nerve system when speaking about what they do; however, very few of them truly analyze or evaluate the very system they speak of. Documentation of the nerve system evaluation, what is seen, preformed and tested, is an important key that one cannot miss; especially the Doctor of Chiropractic. One cannot prove, disprove or improve that which he cannot measure. By reviewing the nerve system components, measuring it and putting together how it connects with the areas of the body, how each system interrelates and what other tests might be needed we can properly arrive at the precise problems. We use patient’s objective measures through our testing to understand each patient’s condition completely and comprehensively in order to properly diagnose. From the diagnosis we can then start formulating a plan on whether we can help this patient or not. The communication to each patient during the education processes, in regards to their health problems and the nerve system, is crucial and can make the patient want services or reject services. Our primary goal is for each attendee to regain the appreciation for the nerve system and most importantly how to measure it!
