NeuroSpinology is a profession focused on the dynamic relationship between spinal movement and neural function. NeuroSpinologists identify spinal obtrusions. They use their hands to deliver a range of precise, gentle technical applications aimed at enhancing the responsive and adaptive capacities of the nervous system in those associated regions.
NeuroSpinology began as Spinology in 1996, but has since been continually refined and developed. It eventually evolved into NeuroSpinology in 2009.
The Academy of Functional Sciences in Sydney, Australia, is the international educational headquarters of the NeuroSpinology profession. NeuroSpinologists are registered with the Registration and Professional Development Board of NeuroSpinology (RPDBN) and are listed on the International Register of NeuroSpinologists. The RPDBN is the international body responsible for the unified growth, development, practice guidelines and standards for the profession in all parts of the world.
Not really. While it may be true that all of these professions may at various times work on or around the back (spinal column) and its associated tissues, there are more differences than similarities. NeuroSpinology is focused on enhancement of the nervous system, rather than pain or symptoms, or postural variations. NeuroSpinologists recognise that all people are inherently different and thus require consideration as a unique individual, rather than through comparison with anyone else.
NeuroSpinology aims to enhance the function of the nervous system, and that can be achieved and be of great benefit to every individual. How this affects any particular person depends on a range of factors, but it is reasonable for everyone to expect that they will function and perform at better levels than they did prior to receiving NeuroSpinology services.
Absolutely. NeuroSpinology utilises the principles of neuroplasticity through physical stimuli. The nervous system is capable of “re-wiring” itself under the influence of consistent, repetitive stimulation, and this is a cornerstone of NeuroSpinology technical applications.
The objectives of NeuroSpinology could not be attained within the boundaries of any other existing profession. NeuroSpinology is not designed to be a health care profession that focuses on diagnosis of diseases or symptoms, but rather on enhanced performance across all aspects of life.
The reason for this approach is that your spine is directly connected to the capacity and function of your nervous system – the “master” system that controls every aspect of one’s life. Spinal care is an integral part of life. While some people may think our services are for when they have a pain or symptom, and doing nothing when feeling fine or adopting a “start-stop” approach, these all have severe limitations when compared to the benefits. The “full picture” is being missed and you are robbing yourself of reaching your full potential through maintained neural function.
The necessity for a new profession arose because of the growing demands and stresses placed on people in modern society, many of which are not addressed in any other profession, combined with the public demand for wellness and an increased quality of life. As we are all exposed to an ever-increasing array of forces that have the capacity to overwhelm our “bodies” attempts to deal with them, NeuroSpinology offers every person the opportunity to better adapt by way of sustained, optimal function of the nervous system.
NeuroSpinology embraces the fact that the living body is always striving to do the best it can for itself. In consideration of this premise, and understanding the master role which the brain and nerve system plays in the co-ordination of the functions, development, growth and repair of the human body, NeuroSpinologists use their precise skills to assist the body to restore and maintain the optimal environment for the central nervous system.
This in turn allows the proper co-ordination of all structures and maximum performance in all areas of life. NeuroSpinologists do not use any of the harsh manipulative procedures seen in other health care professions. They also do not use any forms of “comparative” analysis, i.e. those where a person is compared to some ideal or average and are then subjected to a range of procedures designed to make them fit into that ideal or average range. As a non-manipulative, performance-optimising profession, NeuroSpinology is well placed to meet the rapidly growing demands of the modern world for performance maximisation, enhanced repair and recovery times, wellness, improved quality of life and increased longevity.
