He became a board certified Chiropractic Neurologist in 2001 upon passing the American Chiropractic Neurology board examination. This program is the only Diplomate program in the field of Chiropractic that is fully accredited by NCCA due to its rigorous standards of obtaining and maintaining Diplomate status. Due to the rapidly evolving understanding of the human nervous system, Dr. Berry spends hundreds of hours every year traveling to conferences, reading peer-reviewed literature and research to stay at the cutting edge of diagnostic and treatment parameters. This is why you will find that many healthcare providers have not even heard of clinical applications and advancements in treatments provided by functional neurologists. He has over 2000 hours of post-doctoral education in neurological fields such as vestibular and balance disorders, traumatic brain injury, pain management and neurodegenerative disorders as well as functional medicine.
Dr. Berry has been doing FDA research on neurological effects of Laser Therapy since 2011 and in 2014 he received the Erchonia Researcher of the Year Award. Since then he has been hired by the Erchonia Corporation as a neurology consultant and international speaker. With his background in functional medicine, Dr. Berry was hired on in 2017 by Vibrant America Diagnostic Company as a neurology consultant and lecturer. He was also brought on by BTB Health Systems as a partner, lecturer and consultant in 2017 and lectures nationally and internationally for topics including functional neurology, functional medicine, laboratory testing and interpretation, laser therapy and more.
Dr. Berry states his mission has always been a simple one; never stop learning about the human brain and body from every angle possible. By understanding and applying his multilayered approach with a neurocentric focus health can be achieved where others have failed.
