Dr. Martin Rutherford Receives Recognition as a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner

by Martin Rutherford, D.C.

Dr. Martin RutherfordFunctional Medicine University has awarded a graduation certificate to Dr. Martin Rutherford, DC CFMP signifying his completion of a rigorous course of study in a new science-based system of holistic diagnosis and treatment.  Functional Medicine is especially helpful for patients suffering from chronic conditions or symptoms that have baffled a succession of doctors.  Dr. Martin Rutherford continues to treat patients at his Reno office, focusing on chronic conditions such as Fibromyalgia, Peripheral Neuropathy, Thyroid Conditions, Vertigo/Dizziness and much more.

“Getting fully trained in Functional Medicine to add to the Functional Neurology portion of our practice has been instrumental in allowing us to help our patients get better,” says Dr. Rutherford.  “The overwhelming amount of information and misinformation out there on TV shows, the internet, etc has caused patients to be more confused than ever. Utilizing the Functional Medicine approach we are able to look at each case individually and come up with the best course of action for that patient based on our exams and lab tests.”

The Functional Medicine University curriculum includes coursework on blood chemistry, advanced diagnostic tests, gastrointestinal dysfunctions, immune imbalances, metabolic problems, inflammation, detoxification, hormone disregulation, psychological functioning, biomechanical difficulties and more.

The new Functional Medicine credential builds on Dr. Martin Rutherford’s previous degree as a Doctor of Chiropractic from National University of Health Sciences.  Dr. Rutherford has been seeing patients in the Reno/Sparks area since 1980.

“The ability to treat the patient and not just the diagnosis is completely backward from traditional “insurance run” medicine, and to me it just makes more sense and our patients agree, especially when they are seeing results,” says Dr. Rutherford.

I have been diagnosed with fibromyalgia since 2004. Can you help me find a functional medicine doctor in my area-central Arkansas?
Thanks

The short answer to your question is we unfortunately don’t know of anyone in your area. The longer answer is that we have married two disciplines (functional medicine and chiropractic neurology) to put together what we feel is the most comprehensive program for chronic problems available today. While there are others who claim to do similar treatments we have not met any who practice exactly how we do and have made referrals in the past where the results were less than stellar. We have patients that we have worked with from all over the world. If you would like to find out how you can schedule a consultation with Dr. Rutherford to go over you particular case you can find out more at http://powerhealthreno.com/brochure
