                                  What is Chiropractic Neurology? 

CHIROPRACTIC NEUROLOGY OR FUNCTIONAL NEUROLOGY IS THE STUDY OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM FROM A FUNCTIONAL AND PHYSIOLOGIC VIEWPOINT, ENGAGING THE INTERNAL AND EXTERNAL ENVIRONMENT IN A STRUCTURED AND TARGETED APPROACH TO AFFECT POSITIVE CHANGES IN THE NEURAXIS, THE AXIS OF THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM AND CONSEQUENT PHYSIOLOGY AND BEHAVIOR. 

                                                    HOW ARE MEDICAL & CHIROPRACTIC NEUROLOGISTS DIFFERENT?
MEDICAL AND CHIROPRACTIC NEUROLOGISTS DIFFER GREATLY IN THEIR METHODS OF TREATMENT

  • MEDICAL NEUROLOGIST: will prescribe medications, injections or surgery.
  • CHIROPRACTIC NEUROLOGISTS: use medication free and non-surgical treatment methods to correct a condition. 

                                                                        WHY CHOOSE A CHIROPRACTIC NEUROLOGIST? 
MY CONDITIONS OF THE BRAIN AND NERVOUS SYSTEM DO NOT RESPOND WELL TO AGGRESSIVE INTERVENTIONS SUCH AS DRUG THERAPY OR SURGERY. CHIROPRACTIC NEUROLOGISTS OFTEN HAVE GREAT SUCCESS TREATING PATIENTS WHERE ALL OTHER TREATMENT METHODS HAVE FAILED. ADDITIONALLY, THE DRUG THERAPIES AND SURGICAL INTERVENTIONS USED BY MEDICAL NEUROLOGISTS AND NEUROSURGEONS OFTEN CARRY INCREASED RISKS FOR SERIOUS COMPLICATIONS OR DANGEROUS SIDE EFFECTS. FOR THIS REASON, CHIROPRACTIC NEUROLOGISTS HAVE A UNIQUE AND SIGNIFICANT ROLE IN TREATING BRAIN AND NERVOUS SYSTEM DISORDERS USING SAFE AND EFFECTIVE METHODS PRODUCING LASTING HEALTH BENEFITS. 
                                                                         WHAT DO CHIROPRACTIC NEUROLOGISTS DO? 
CHIROPRACTIC NEUROLOGISTS ARE CHIROPRACTORS WHO HAVE CONTINUED WITH AN ADVANCED 3-YEAR POST-GRADUATE TRAINING PROGRAM AND ARE EXPERTS OF THE BRAIN, SPINE AND NERVOUS SYSTEM. IN ADDITION TO EVALUATING FOR PATHOLOGIES AS MEDICAL DOCTORS DO, A CHIROPRACTIC NEUROLOGIST EVALUATES FOR SUBTLE CHANGES IN THE FUNCTION OF THE NERVOUS SYSTEM. IT IS THIS EXPERTISE IN DETECTING SUBTLE CHANGES IN FUNCTION THAT SETS A CHIROPRACTIC NEUROLOGIST APART FROM OTHER SPECIALISTS. AS IN MEDICINE, THE CHIROPRACTIC PROFESSION HAS SPECIALISTS WHO PROVIDE EVALUATIONS AND CONSULTATIONS FOR OTHER PHYSICIANS AND HEALTH CARE PRACTITIONERS.
