What is Functional Neurology?
Typically, a functional neurologist serves in the same consulting manner as a medical neurologist. The difference is that the therapies or applications of a functional neurologist include more than drugs or surgery. As a result, certain conditions are more customarily seen by a functional neurologist as opposed to a medical neurologist, and vice versa. Functional neurologists can provide therapies and treatments as well as counsel when there is a diagnostic dilemma or a question of appropriateness of care regarding an individual lesion or scenario.
