What is Chiropractic Neurology and what conditions could benefit from care?
Chiropractic neurology is a subspecialty of chiropractic practice. A chiropractic neurologist diagnoses and treats a range of disorders affecting the nervous system. The therapy a chiropractic neurologist prescribes does not include drugs or surgery. Typical dysfunctions treated by a chiropractic neurologist include a variety of disorders affecting the peripheral nervous system, such as radiculopathy or other peripheral nerve entrapment syndromes. They also work with patients who have central nervous system disorders such as Parkinson’s or post-stroke rehabilitation. They also provide concussion care and treat those with traumatic brain injuries. In addition to providing therapies and treatments, a chiropractic neurologist can provide counseling about diagnostic dilemmas and offer advice about the care a patient may already be receiving. They use many tools to come to a diagnosis: physical examination, laboratory values, radiographs, MRI, CT, and many other available tests.
What can be expected during a visit?
Your initial visit will typically include a comprehensive neurological and physical examination, and will take 60-90 minutes. During this visit, we will also talk about your case in detail to get a holistic view of you as a whole person. Depending on the diagnosis, your treatment may consist of eye movement therapy, vestibular therapy, movement and proprioceptive therapy, chiropractic adjustments, biofeedback, cold laser application, application of vibrotactile stimulation, meditation techniques, nutrition recommendations, supplement suggestions, and lifestyle improvements.
