FNOR - Functional Neuro-Orthopedic Rehabilitation

A Unique, Modern Approach to Rehabilitation.

FNOR is a modern rehabilitation approach that seamlessly blends applied functional neuroscience, physical therapy, orthopedic care and modern rehabilitative methods to achieve faster, more effective, consistent results.

The FNOR approach is a powerful system that has been proven on thousands of the most complicated, musculoskeletal patients.
If you have been searching for a way to take your health to the next level, you cannot afford to miss this cutting-edge treatment!

FNOR began as a project that was aimed at developing non-invasive solutions to stubborn, treatment-resistant post-surgical pain, but developed into a comprehensive system of physical rehabilitation that can be effectively applied to a range of common orthopedic conditions including:

  • Arm/Shoulder Conditions (e.g. rotator cuff injury, frozen shoulder, shoulder pain, tennis elbow, golfer's elbow).
  • Spinal Conditions (e.g. lower back pain, neck pain, spinal stenosis, disc injury).
  • Hip/Leg Problems (e.g. IT Band Syndrome, hip arthritis, hip pain, knee pain, runners knee, Achilles tendon pain, plantar fasciitis).

Because the FNOR system addresses the body and brain, it is also used to rehabilitate those who have suffered from:

  • Brain Injury (e.g. Stroke, Concussion, TBI).
  • Poor Balance, Instability, Frequent Falling.
  • Traumatic Injuries involving brain and body issues.

How does FNOR differ from other rehabilitation approaches?

1. Body and Brain Approach
Based on modern research in neuroscience and rehabilitation, FNOR is based on the concept that musculoskeletal injury associated with pain that lasts a long time after the injury, most often causes changes in the nervous system (brain and nerves of the body).

This is why many patients fail to respond to conventional physical therapy and medical measures that only address the injured or painful area - these limited approaches do not address the changes in the nervous system that result from injury.

FNOR treats the body and brain at the same time through the use of a range of unique techniques. While some look similar to common physical therapy methods and some look very different, all FNOR methods are non-invasive.

2. Different Pain Treatment Methods
Many patients report that they feel like " somebody finally understands their pain" and its effects on their life. FNOR treats even the most stubborn forms of chronic pain, including postsurgical pain. In fact, the FNOR system was first developed to treat pain sufferers, many of whom had undergone multiple failed surgeries.

By going after changes in the nervous system, FNOR aims to reverse the effects of chronic pain on your body, boosting the function of your nervous system rather than just dampening the areas dealing with pain.

3. Variety of Techniques & Approaches
If you are a chronic pain sufferer or someone who has seen multiple specialists for your injury, then you have likely seen physical (physio-) therapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, medical physicians and even surgeons. You probably noticed that each had their own approach to your problem. You may have found that each of these approaches had some limited benefit,
but none completely resolved your problem. bju

While each approach has its merits, for most people, their chronic pain and injury requires a multi-pronged approach, involving a range of methods rather than one-at-a-time. In fact, in many cases, the process of undergoing therapies one-at-a-time, can actually prolong recovery and complicate the problem.
For many patients, the FNOR approach brings the real relief that they have been waiting for!
