Chiropractic Neurology: The New Model

November 21, 2014

Why a new model? Well, I think we can all agree that, while pharmaceuticals and surgical intervention are appropriate in some situations, the majority of issues cannot be solved with those approaches. We must ask ourselves, are people better off after surgery? Are we truly better off taking drugs for mood, attention, high cholesterol, depression, anxiety?...

Why Chiropractic Neurology is your answer for Cluster Headaches

November 13, 2014

Cluster Headaches are known as a neurovascular headache (which most headaches truly are if you understand neurology). They also go by Histamine headaches. These headaches are extremely debilitating, affecting one side of the head/face, particularly in and around the orbit, or eye. These headaches can be so bad that people often have thoughts of suicide....

Center of Pressure: What this means to posture, joint and spinal pain

October 29, 2014

If I drew a line right down the center of you, it should land in between your ankles. If I looked at you from the side, I should be able to draw a line from your ear and connect it straight down to your shoulder, then hip and finally your ankle. This is perfect center of pressure.  Now, if you think about this from an engineering perspective, it allows...

The Pain-Gate Theory: How chiropractic care creates motion to inhibit pain

October 29, 2014

Our body is a network of nerves that signal the brain as to whether we experience fine touch, pressure, vibration, temperature changes or pain. Pain nerves are tonically firing, which means that they are always sending signals toward the brain. This is important and explains why we react so quickly to a hot stove, or a pin prick. Thus, the question should...

When a Doctor bulges their disc, what do they do?

October 29, 2014

About a month ago, I was performing deadlifts at the gym, and apparently doing them incorrectly. I felt a pull in my lower back, having realized immediately what I may have done- I discontinued my workout. I was hoping I didn't bulge a disc, but the symptoms were consistent with a bulge, and unfortunately, I was right. I had created a disc bulge at the...

What is Functional Neurology?

September 25, 2014

Functional Neurology is a new branch of healthcare that allows the human brain to change. It does this by restructuring pathways and signaling within the infrastructure of the brain- these changes are known as neuroplasticity. Functional Neurologists are experts in detecting these errors in signaling within the nervous system, enabling specific treatment...

Posture

December 24, 2013

Posture Many people that come into our office are uncertain as to why they have neck, shoulder or back pain.  The common statement is that, “it came out of nowhere.”  However, as practitioners we have come to realize that there is a cause for these symptoms, and it’s due to postural strain over time.  As sedentary individuals, we don’t move as...

Chiropractic Neurology: A multi-modal approach

November 11, 2013

When we look at the human body, we are not looking at only one system, but of multiple systems that work in cooperation to create normal function.  In turn, one of the most common mistakes in healthcare is to compartmentalize conditions, looking at them segmentally, instead of analyzing all the potential causes.  Chiropractic Neurology utilizes sophistic...

November 11, 2013

Spinal decompression offers a great alternative and conservative method to aid in the treatment of chronic injuries that relate to the discs of the spine.  Many individuals who do not respond to Physical Therapy, Chiropractic or other types of treatments by themselves often experience great results when those are combinated with disc decompression.  Disc...
