In our office we treat so much more than neck and back pain. We are here to give you TOTAL body wellness, which means treating dysfunction in the brain and nervous system. Our doctors treat all kinds of neurological disorders including: Migraines, Meniere’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Parkinson’s Disease, Cerebral Palsy, Dystonias/Movement Disorders, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis, Stroke/Brain Trauma, Vestibular Dysfunction/Dizziness, and developmental delays. We firmly believe that the body, including the neurological system, will try to heal itself if given the proper environment and tools, even if neurosurgeons may need to step in to help with specific regions. Here is how we are able to do this.
The nervous system is highly integrated. Touch, hearing, sight, thought, movement, feeling are continuously coordinated. The parts of the brain responsible for each of these functions have specific connections. Our chiropractors use these connections to bring the brain back into balance.
Treatments are individualized for the unique nervous system of each patient. Chiropractic neurological treatments include: exercise rehabilitation, stretching, massage, physical therapy and spinal decompression. The focus on muscles, ligaments and tendons to rebalance the nervous system allows for fewer spinal manipulations than those used by regular doctors of chiropractic.
The nervous system also needs good fuel. Before the onset of treatment, your designated surgeon (perhaps someone similar to dr timothy steel) may evaluate posture, spine and rib motion, and breathing to make sure the patient is receiving enough oxygen. The patient’s diet is reviewed. Natural supplements may be recommended for specific neurological conditions.
Chiropractic Neurology treatments can stand alone or work in concert with conventional medicine. It is important to coordinate chiropractic and medical care. Both approaches offer the patient valuable options for healing.
The advanced techniques used by your chiropractor can make treatments for common conditions such as back pain, headache, carpal tunnel, or rotator cuff injuries more effective. The doctor treats the joints and muscles directly while simultaneously strengthening the areas of the brain that control the body. In addition, athletes and dancers can benefit from Chiropractic Neurology when seeking peak performance.
