Answering Clinical Questions Improves Patient Safety
How do I know if chiropractic functional neurology can help me?
Only a thorough interview, examination, review of prior records and a consultation regarding diagnostic impressions can answer that question. Many with problems associated with alterations in brain activity have found relief through chiropractic functional neurology. Some of the conditions that have shown positive responses to this type of approach include:
Complex Neurological Conditions
- Traumatic Brain Injury /Concussion
- Movement Disorders
- Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD)
- Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
If, after a thorough intake process, our clinicians do not feel that a trial course of care can offer the prospect of improvement, we will not recommend care.
What is the GyroStimTM Balance Training System?
The GyroStimTM Balance Training System is a device developed by UltraThera Technologies. The clinic uses this device to provide patterned, programmed and precise input to the human vestibular apparatus – that portion of our inner ears that tells the brain where we are in space and time. The clinic has found the GyroStimTM to be an effective tool for the treatment of a variety of conditions, and as such may be included in recommended care programs for certain chiropractic functional neurology patients.
How do I make an appointment at the NeuroLife Institute?
Appointments with the clinical staff at the NeuroLIFE Institute can be made by calling our office phone line (770.426.2829), emailing us at info@NeuroLIFEInstitute.com or asking your doctor of chiropractic or medicine to refer you through those channels.
Once we receive your request or a referral, we will ask for a complete copy of your health history, including scans, lab reports, etc. To obtain this information, you must contact each of the providers, clinics or hospitals where your records are kept. With your written authorization to release a copy of your records, these providers must make a copy of your information available to our staff at the NeuroLIFE Institute. After we receive this information, one of our clinical staff will review all the data and recommend whether or not we can offer you a realistic possibility of improvement in your condition. At that point, you will be scheduled with one of our clinicians.
Who can refer me to the NeuroLIFE Institute?
You can call for an appointment or ask your current provider to refer you to the Institute.
Do you work with other chiropractic and medical doctors?
The Center’s clinical staff works with referring and consulting providers from all over the world. In many cases, ongoing care needs are best met through the primary clinical relationship individuals have where they live. Where appropriate, ongoing care recommendations are provided to the individual and/or their provider(s) for appropriate and ongoing care needs.
What will my first visit to the NeuroLIFE Institute be like?
Appointments generally include the following:
- Review of chiropractic, medical, laboratory, imaging and other relevant clinical records.
- A thorough clinical interview and case history will be taken.
- Additional laboratory or other data and information may be requested.
- Where indicated, additional evaluation and testing utilizing specific functional neurology equipment and devices.
- A summary review and presentation of diagnostic findings.
- Consultation with additional specialists where indicated.
- Recommendations for care, and a determination as to whether the case can be accepted.
- If accepted, a care management plan will be mutually agreed upon and instituted.
- Care is normally provided as soon as possible after the initial set of steps are completed, with additional care in keeping with the agreed-upon care management plan.
- Progress is tracked steadily during the course of care to ensure optimal outcomes.
Many patients receive optimal benefit from the initial care provided; some require additional care. Some patients, upon examination, are excused from the Center when there is little reason to believe they may enjoy any improvement in their condition.
It is common that patients end up on a 5-day treatment program, but everyone’s needs are unique. For those who require extended care and reinforcement visits as they recover and improve, we have arrangements with a number of local hotels, all within several miles of the Life University campus. For information about hotels, please go here.

I would like to contribute to the NeuroLIFE Institute Grateful Patient Program and help others benefit from chiropractic functional neurology.
Costs of health care can be expensive, and fees at the NeuroLIFE Institute are simply beyond what some individuals and families can afford. In response, Life University has established a fund for people who cannot afford the costs of care. We often hear from grateful patients that they would like to be able to contribute to this fund to make it possible for others to enjoy the benefits of chiropractic functional neurology and achieve optimal function.
