Over the last 5 years we have integrated Functional Neurology into the clinic successfully. The integrated system we developed, Postural Ocular Neural System (PONS) combines the 20 years of Pettibon experience Dr. Horseman has along with his 1000 hours of additional neurology training to produce the best outcomes possible.

For neurological testing and rehabilitation we have a Videonystagmograph (VNG) and Neuro Sensorimotor Integrator (NSI); both of which are invaluable tools in our clinic.


For physical rehabilitation we utilize three different spinal decompression tables for various conditions, IFC, cold LASER therapy, Shockwave therapy, biomechanical manipulations and hyper/hypo-therapy. We also provide instruction in exercises designed to be performed at home in order to continue with the patient’s rehabilitation.
