Chiropractic Neurology focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of disorders involving the musculo-skeletal and neurological system, without the use of drugs or surgery.
Part of what constitutes Chiropractic Neurology is the utilization of Functional Neurology, which is based upon the principles of neuroplasticity. The various parts of your nervous system can be altered to work more efficiently and even regenerate. The goal of a Functional Neurologist is to optimize this remarkable ability.
The spinal column encases the spinal cord, delivering vital information from the brain to the body, and vice versa. It is the hub of communication that keeps us alive and healthy. Virtually every cell in the human body is controlled by the nervous system in one way or another, so we must take care of it, by taking care of our spine. When a Chiropractic Neurologist performs a chiropractic adjustment, our goal is not only to change the structure at that level, but also to change the pathways that connect that structure with the brain, as it is the ultimate controlling center of every tissue in the human body.
“Brain and body patterns must be interconnected, if not, dysfunction occurs.”
You can change the brain, nervous system and its connections-this is known as Neuroplasticity. We utilize this ability of the body to restore normal function to areas of the brain and nervous system that are functioning at a low level. Chiropractic Neurology detects these broken patterns and reconnects them. By combining chiropractic care, neurology and physical rehabilitation, we are able to make changes not only in the dysfunctional joints, muscles and surrounding tissues, but also in the brain and nervous system that are controlling them. Diagnosing the level(s) where the problems are occurring allows us to reconnect these structures and allow the human body to function in a symptom-free, healthy state.
This understanding allows us to diagnose, treat and alleviate many conditions relating to, and above and beyond regular chiropractic care. This is true holistic healing as virtually every cell in the body is controlled by the nervous system. It allows us to achieve the best possible outcomes for our patients, whether it is in our office, or a referral to an MD, MT, PT, DDS, OD et cetera. We strive to get each and every patient well, no matter whom or what provides it.
We offer comprehensive care, diagnosing and treating every individual with a combination of chiropractic, neurological and physical rehabilitative understanding and therapy. We strive to complete our treatment plans on time and without lengthy, ongoing treatment. Our advanced understanding of the neuro-musculoskeletal system is extremely important in your success.
