There are no two brains that are the same. Everyone has a genetic makeup that is unique to themselves. Furthermore, every person has experienced a distinct set of environmental circumstances in their life that may include things such as car accidents, sports involvement, mental traumas, different job influences, and any other trauma no matter how great or small. Therefore, no two patient rehabilitation programs should be the same.
Every brain has a neurological makeup that is unique to that individual. Therefore, while two patients can have the same diagnosis, the neurological and physiological reasons for their diagnosis can be different. At Birmingham Functional Neurology, we administer a bedside examination that is both highly specific down to the function of individual nuclei, as well as, the physiology and function of your nervous system as a whole to determine the patient's neurological circumstance. This allows for the development of a proper rehabilitation program composed for the individual patient.
Dr Arrieta explains his findings and thought processes as he progresses through the exam. At its conclusion, the patient's findings are explained in detail so they understand their results.
There can be a number of different neurological pathways that can be utilized to stimulate a particular area of the brain. The strength and viability of these pathways are different for every person. Therefore, when we create a patient's rehabilitation program, it not only accounts for the specific areas that need to be rehabilitated, but it also considers their neurological function as a complete system. Further, as changes take place in the patient's nervous system during rehabilitation, their therapy must also be altered to account for these changes. Consequently, a rehabilitation program must be a fluid process. Therefore, every patient's therapy program is not only personalized but constantly re-tailored throughout their rehabilitation.
