WHAT IS IT?
Functional neurologists work with neurological disorders without the use of drugs or surgery.
Functional neurologists are trained to assess and intervene in all manner of neurological conditions. Our training consists of postdoctoral education in diagnosis and management of neurological disorders that requires several years to complete. This training generally takes place at extension facilities all around the globe, including chiropractic schools, medical schools, university campuses, and others. A number of different educational institutions train functional neurologists.
Dr Billing has trained in Clinical Neuroscience at London Imperial Collage, Vestibular Rehabillitation at Amsderdam NL, Brain Dissection at Touro University California, Concussion Recovery at Carrick Institute Florida, Functional Neurology Seminars Texas, Functional Neurology and Rehabillitation in Orlando & Nevada.
The largest and longest serving of these is the Carrick Institute for Graduate Studies. The Carrick institute has trained functional neurologists throughout North America, Europe, Asia, and Australia for three decades. The majority of functional neurology practitioners are chiropractors, however many different types of healthcare providers are represented within the functional neurology profession. Medical doctors, Doctors of Osteopathy, and Naturopathic Physicians have completed functional neurology training and become licensed as functional neurologists.
Upon completion of functional neurology training, students become eligible to sit for board examinations that certify them as functional neurologists. Certification is provided through two primary organizations, the American Chiropractic Neurology Board, and the American College of Functional Neurology. The ACNB is itself accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies, the same organization that certifies all medical specialty boards.
