Located in Eatontown, NJ, Monmouth Functional Neurology Center provides a unique approach to concussion care, as well as a host of other neurologic conditions. Our functional neurologist, Dr. Scopelliti, focuses on the neuroglial integration of the brain, vestibular and oculomotor systems while taking each patients current ability to recover into consideration, something which makes us very different. Prior to visiting us, learn about some conditions we treat below:
Addressing Underlying Conditions
We go beyond standard 5 minute exams to assess how neurologic function has been impacted. This approach allows us to properly diagnose and treat conditions that may be causing symptoms, such as the following:
- Dizziness: Frequent dizziness can be a sign of inner ear dysfunction or other neurological issues. Our doctor will evaluate your visual system's role in balance and spatial orientation, potentially uncovering causes of dizziness.
- Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and Concussion: Visual disturbances are common after TBI/concussion. We can assess visual function and design rehabilitation programs specific to each patients needs to help restore normal vestibular/oculomotor integration.
- Vertigo: Vertigo is a spinning sensation that can be triggered by many causes. Our team can identify these causes and recommend therapies to alleviate vertigo symptoms.
- Fall Risk: Visual impairments and neurological conditions can contribute to an increased risk of falls. We evaluate your visual function and balance system to recommend appropriate strategies for reducing fall risk.
Neurological Conditions We Treat
At our practice, we also provide care for various neurological conditions. Some of these conditions include:
- Dystonia: This movement disorder can affect the eye muscles, causing involuntary blinking, spasms, or blurry vision accompanying bodily tremors. With the right treatment, we can help manage these symptoms and improve visual comfort.
- Headaches and Migraines: Visual triggers can contribute to headaches and migraines. After assessing your visual system for potential triggers, our functional neurologist will recommend treatments to alleviate these symptoms. We also have many other options for headache management.
- POTS Dysautonomia: This condition can cause vision changes due to fluctuations in heart rate and blood pressure, typically accompanied with extreme heart rate changes, (tachycardia). We can evaluate you and recommend specific treatments for managing POTS symptoms, as well as other types of dysautonomia.
