Where is Neuroworks?
Do I need to be referred by a GP?
No, you can see us without a GP referral unless you are claiming through insurance and the company requires it.
What type of treatment will you give me and how long will it take?
Each client is different and an individual treatment plan will be made for you after your assessment. We will explain the treatment we recommend and how long it should take to see results. Most conditions are resolved within 6-8 treatments and some require only one or two. Complicated or chronic conditions may need more. We do not try to push you into lengthy pre-paid treatment schedules nor do we treat patients in open plan rooms. You will be seen individually in your own room.
Are there any side effects or dangers to treatment?
Treatment is very safe and there are no specific long-term side effect or dangers. Some people experience temporary balance disturbances, mood changes or tenderness in the area that has been physically worked on. The tests we use are painless and non-invasive.
Will my treatment involve medication?
We do not prescribe clients medication at Neuroworks.
Can it be too late to undergo treatment?
In most cases it’s not too late. We can normally improve connections between nerve cells, which should help your condition.
What makes Neuroworks different?
Does research support Neuroworks’ approach?
The Neuroworks approach follows a wealth of research conducted over the last 20+ years. Clinical outcome studies are increasing. This is an exciting, new and developing field that greatly improves our understanding of the functioning of the body.
Why is nobody else in the UK using this integrated approach?
Until the 1990s, the nervous system was the most clinically overlooked part of the body because of its complexity. During the 1990s research into the nervous system has blossomed, but so far few practitioners in this country have applied the learning in day-to-day clinical settings.
Why didn’t my neurologist suggest this approach?
Currently neurology still focuses on diseases of the brain as chemical imbalances. Surgery and medication are the main treatments but in many people where there are no conclusive results patients are encouraged to learn to accept their symptoms without treatment. At Neuroworks we believe in a more pro-active approach.
Why do you use CDP, saccadometry and VNG to assess brain activity?
Currently only EEG (Electro Encephalograms), fMRI (functional MRI), and PET (Positron Emission Tomography) show levels of brain activity. These are magnificent procedures but they are time-consuming and very expensive. This limits their use in day-to-day clinical settings. We use VNG (Video Nystagmography), CDP (Computer-assisted Dymanic Posturography), neurological examination and questionnaires to make objective, inexpensive predictions of brain function. CAPS and VNG are also used in our rehabilitation procedures and monitoring treatment.
What is hemisphericity or brain lateralisation syndrome?
Each side of the brain can function at different levels if the frequency of nerve cell activation is different. This can happen even though both sides (or hemispheres) of the brain are richly connected by nerves. For example if your right hemisphere fires at a frequency of 30Hz and your left hemisphere fires at 40Hz, you will have a tendency to use and attend to the functions of your faster left hemisphere. This would affect your perception and reaction to your environment and others around you. It would also affect the regulation of your bodily systems.
