About Next Level Neuro

Neurology is often perceived to be the realm of medical doctors and surgeons, out of reach of day-to-day practitioners, or not within their scope of work.  In fact, nothing could be farther from the truth. 

Neurology is not just for stroke rehab and concussion recovery.  It applied to ALL clients & patients... in fact, health & training practitioners need to be aware that they are ALWAYS utilizing and training the nervous system.  You just can't escape it!  But are you training it on purpose, or by accident? 

Next Level Neuro exists to provide you a “brain-based lens” through which the body systems & integrated functions can be understood, so that you can implement day-to-day neurology training exercises in your work or your own life.  The NLN education programs will introduce you to the anatomy and function of several of our most important neurological systems - those used for movement, balance, and postural control - and help you learn and implement practical neurological exercises that can help to restore these systems to optimal function.  

These tools can be used to regulate the nervous system, improve attention, focus, and communication, and create balance and optimal movement in the body systems. After working with Next Level Neuro, you will understand why neurology training is NOT just for doctors or for patients of neurological injury or disease, but a toolset that can benefit EVERY client you work with and give you tools and strategies to help 100% of the people you see!
