I would agree that AJAX would be the best option.  But if you want another way of doing this you can always create a hidden iframe and set the src to a page that calls the function.  In the page that calls the function set the the meta refresh value to some value.

<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="5">

That is what the hidden iframe is for.  It would cause you main page to refresh.
