What is Chiropractic Neurology?

Chiropractic Neurology is a science-based, healthcare specialty that focuses on optimizing the function of the nervous system. The most recent advances in neuroscience support the interventions provided by Chiropractic Neurologists for the treatment of nervous system disorders. Neuroplasticity is a newly coined term that describes the brain's natural ability to create new connections and strengthen existing connections. The application of non-pharmaceutical, non-surgical interventions allow the Chiropractic Neurologist to promote neuroplasticity in all patients, regardless of age or clinical presentation. Most often, these neuroplastic changes are most dramatic in those children who suffer with ADHD, learning difficulties and chronic infections, and in those individuals suffering with headaches, dizziness, vertigo, imbalance, tremors, tics, nerve entrapments and chronic pain syndromes.
What is a Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologist?
1. Specialists within the chiropractic profession who have completed an intensive three-year post-doctoral course of study in neurology.
2. Specialists who have successfully demonstrated expertise in the detection and correction of nervous system disorders during a rigorous board examination administered by the American Chiropractic Neurology Board (learn more at www.acnb.org.)
3. Specialists who recertify their credentials yearly in order to remain at the forefront of neuroscience and neurological applications.
Optimum Chiropractic Neurology Center is a 100% chiropractic neurology based health center. Our diagnostic abilities and techniques have proven to be extremely successful with patients suffering a variety of pain syndromes, peripheral nerve injuries, balance and movement disorders, conditions involving functional imbalances in the hemispheres of the brain (such as ADD, ADHD, learning disabilities, and mild depression), and with healthy patients and athletes in a quest to maximize their potential. Our procedures are based upon our understanding that a joint problem may not always be primary, but may be secondary to muscle imbalances resulting from altered function of relay centers of the nervous system.
Our training is not just in techniques of joint manipulation but also in extensive neurological and musculoskeletal rehabilitation protocols designed to address neuromuscular imbalances.
At OCNC we use the most advanced therapeutic applications of brain-based modalities to treat people with neurological and musculoskeletal conditions. We are committed to bringing you better health through chiropractic neurology.
