Victoria Tx , Chiropractic Neurology marries the biomechanic/orthopedic aspect of
chiropractic care with the latest techniques of assessment and rehabilitation of
the central nervous system.
The result is a model of diagnosis and care that incorporates all of the patient’s
symptoms into one complete treatment plan.
This is accomplished via an intimate knowledge of clinical/physiologic neurology
as well as pathologic neurology and how the different systems (visual, olfactory,
proprioception, etc.) can afferentate (stimulate) the central nervous system specifically
(for rehabilitation purposes) and how the central nervous system can affect function
of any or all of these systems in turn.
Chiropractic Neurology is brain-based. It recognizes the supreme importance of the
brain in its purpose to coordinate and communicate with the body. The health of the
body depends on the brain for proper function. Chiropractic neurology improves functioning
of the brain and its ability to restore overall health. The unique therapies employed
include stimulation techniques such as joint mobilization, muscle stretch reflexes,
stimulation of reflexes involved in balance and motion, light, color, sound or various
other stimuli, such as vibration, light touch and temperature. The brain controls
and regulates all body systems. Suboptimal brain function can cause or worsen hormonal
problems, immune problems, digestive problems or problems traditionally associated
with any other body system. It is also true that problems in these other systems
can interfere with brain function, as the body is complex and all systems are intertwined.
A Chiropractic Neurologist is a highly trained & qualified chiropractor that has
completed a rigorous post-graduate program beyond chiropractic college. They utilize
a thorough neurologically-based physical exam performed with a keen eye for subtle
areas of poor function in areas of the nervous system, that will help to understand
the patient’s unique problem in very specific terms.
Intervention is then customized to the unique needs of the patient and strives to
normalize function in the nervous system. A variety of highly effective natural treatment
options are available to improve the health of these dysfunctional regions. Common
conditions helped include: head injuries, ADD/ADHD, chronic pain, vertigo, dystonias/movement
disorders, disc herniations, & peripheral nerve entrapments, peripheral neuropathy,
fibromyalgia, vertigo and balance problems, migraines and chronic headaches, neck
and back pain, radiculopathy, sciatica, hypothyroidism, facial pain, TMJ, insomnia,
learning difficulties, tremor, memory problems, foot drop, post-stroke symptoms,
The result is a treatment that is specific for your body and your brain. Best of
all, this option is natural and non-invasive. Because of this holistic approach,
many patients seen by chiropractic neurologists have a myriad of symptoms that can
involve many systems including limbic (emotional), sensory/motor and cognitive. Due
to the fact that all of these systems feed into and off of one another, it is important
to have a specific treatment plan that results in positive outcomes for the integration
of all of these areas. The end result is a well integrated body and a well integrated
Most people associate traditional chiropractic only with back and neck pain. This
new neurologic model of care is beneficial for many individuals with symptoms ranging
from post-stroke difficulties to vertigo, dystonia, learning disorders and pain syndromes.
Patients dealing with disorders of the central nervous system or brain based neurological
difficulty who either have not responded to traditional medical care or would like
other options to invasive/pharmaceutical intervention might consider evaluation and
treatment by a chiropractic neurologist.©
HOW DO YOU BENEFIT?
- Diagnosis, finding the origin of your discomfort
- Precise treatment of your individual and specific problem, not only symptom "cover
- Accelerated functional improvement
- Advanced care of difficult, chronic and complex cases
CAUSE AND EFFECT
Chiropractic neurology incorporates similar training to medical neurology but differs
in application, treatments and therapies. Consequently, chiropractic neurologists
may recommend treatment or therapies that may not be familiar to other practitioners
and will likely be new to you as well. Such treatment, known as afferent stimulation,
is the use of elements of the physical environment that are non-invasive and non-surgical.
Examples of afferent stimulation include chiropractic adjustments, brain exercises,
light, heat, water, sound, and electric stim. When these afferent stimulation modalities
are specifically and correctly applied to your case immediate results are often observed.
Your nervous system will begin to regain its optimal function and you will begin
to regain your life.
