Are you suffering from headaches, vertigo, dizziness, dementia, or movement disorders? Have you tried conventional treatment options, only to find they didn’t work? Are you frustrated from not feeling heard by other medical providers?
At The Dearing Clinic in Nashville, we understand how hopeless you might be feeling after trying other neurological disorders treatments that failed to provide the relief you need. That’s why we’ll take a thorough integrative medicine approach to determine the root cause of your neurological disorder.
Our team of functional neurology experts will listen to your concerns and do a thorough evaluation. Then you will be guided through a personalized care plan unique to your needs to help you live your best life.
Types of Neurological Disorders
Neurological disorders are dysfunctions within the brain or nervous system. An integrative medicine approach to functional neurology provides drug-free solutions to help treat the following disorders.
Headaches & Migraines
Did you know that 90 percent of headaches are caused by compressed peripheral nerves in the neck muscles? Also, were you aware that severe headaches are just one symptom of migraines? Our functional neurology experts use a personalized, drug-free, comprehensive approach to relieve your headaches and identify other possible symptoms and triggers of migraines to help you feel like yourself again.
Vertigo & Dizziness
Though both are often rooted in the neck, the difference between vertigo and dizziness is that dizziness means you feel lightheaded or unsteady (as if you’re rocking on a boat) while vertigo causes you to feel like you are spinning. Due to Dr. Dearing’s unique treatment protocols for dizziness and vertigo, The Dearing Clinic has become Nashville’s go-to practice to help you regain your balance and return to the life you love.
Concussions & Whiplash
A concussion is a brain injury due to an impact to the head. Whiplash is caused by the head and neck rapidly moving forward and backward. With these conditions, it’s critical to understand which areas of the brain and brainstem were injured in order to resolve chronic post-concussion syndromes. The Dearing Clinic team uses a comprehensive approach and drug-free solutions to restore both your body and your brain.
Dementia refers to neurological disorders that cause memory loss and impaired thinking. Fortunately, when it’s caught early, several treatment options have been shown to slow and even halt the progression of dementia. Our compassionate functional neurology experts create a drug-free integrative medicine plan to boost your quality of life.
Alzheimer’s Disease is a brain disease that accumulates poorly developed neurons associated with inflammation, specifically tau and amyloid beta plaques, which slowly cause dementia and destroys basic functioning. Our functional neurology experts create care plans to improve your quality of life and allow you to focus on your life and those you love.
Parkinson’s Disease is a progressive neurological disorder that causes involuntary and uncontrollable movements. We offer drug-free integrative medicine solutions and easy therapies to help significantly slow the progression of Parkinson’s Disease and improve movement capacity, cognition, and overall quality of life.
Movement disorders are neurological disorders that cause abnormal movements, which can range from noticing your head feels like it's vibrating (known as titubation) to facial or neck motor tics, hyperkinetic disorders, tardive dyskinesia and more. Our functional neurology experts provide personalized, drug-free care to help you regain control of your body and your life.
