Migraines: Why do my eyes hurt?
August 7, 2017
Eye pain is a common symptom associated with Migraines. Migraines are due to central neurological changes within the brain that suffer from abnormal discharge of cells associsated with vascular changes within the walls of blood vessels. This causes constriction and dilation to occur, which is the cause of the throbbing pain experienced during a migraine....
A simple way to understand how mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy heals injured tissue
May 18, 2017
Under Hyperbaric Therapy (HBO2), Oxygen, which is a much smaller molecule than a Red Blood Cell (RBC), is pulled from the larger RBC, which is carrying the oxygen molecules to tissues via hemoglobin. RBC's are the vehicle transport for all oxygen within our body. After extraction, it is now concentrated within the surrounding plasma. This allows the smaller...

When we experience a concussion our nerve axons (connections) are stretched!
February 16, 2017
If you connected all of our neurons, they would stretch around the earth four times. That's 100 billion neurons that make up our brain, all connected to create a framework that allows for incredible function, allowing us to love, create, think, imagine, dream, move, plan, focus, speak and the list goes on. However, our brains are so miraculous, not based...
Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Brain Wellness
May 7, 2016
A patient recently said to me, "that Oxygen chamber is better than a cup of coffee." Brain wellness, why don't we discuss this topic more? We're so obsessed with nutrition and exercise that we forget about a fundamental requirement for the brain, Oxygen.

Migraines: Why we are getting tremendous results with Chiropractic Neurology
April 5, 2016
To understand Migraines, you need to understand the mechanism that causes them. So often, I am puzzled by the care that I see Migraine sufferers receiving in an attempt to "control" migraines. I have since realized that there aren't many practitioners out there that truly understand migraines and their cause. Migraine pain is severe, often one sided,...
Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Neurological conditions and Brain Injury
April 5, 2016
It is widely understood that oxygen is important in our body's innate healing mechanisms. What isn't understood is that even though we are breathing, oxygen is not perfusing areas of the body sufficient for optimal function and healing. Our brain, specifically the autonomic nervous system, regulates where blood flow will be increased or decreased in...

April 5, 2016
What is Neuroplasticity? It refers to the ability of the brain to adapt, reorganizing to create new neural pathways so that we can CHANGE our brain function as needed. Why is it needed? Many of us go through life changing head injuries, major life events that alter us in some way, illness, accidents, postural changes and every day stress that can effect the...
Maintenance for your Spine equals Maintenance for your Brain
March 31, 2016
Once you're experiencing pain, it's too late. By that I don't mean that it's not treatable, but I do mean that your system has already been compensating for some time.
