What is Functional Neurology?
Dr. Ala Lysyk-Smith

As brain health experts, we help manage chronic and seemingly unsolvable neurological and health conditions with a brain-based functional neurology approach.

By looking at how brain function intersects with other systems in the body, we can begin to unravel complex health conditions and understand how best to assist with your care. Functional Chiropractic Neurology is a sub-specialty of Chiropractic.

As Chiropractic Neurologists we are licensed chiropractors who have completed an additional 3+ years of study in neurology including academic and clinical training and passed a rigorous written and practical certification examination, given by the American Chiropractic Neurology Board (ACNB).
