A chiropractic neurologist has advanced and extensive training in the field of neurology. They are board-certified through the ACNB (American Chiropractic Neurology Board) and are required to complete an additional 300+ hours of study, and pass a vigorous 4-day exam to attain certification. They are trained in cutting edge neuroscience, neurological pathways, and the most effective neurological therapies as science defines them. A chiropractic neurologist looks at the patient in a different light. It’s not just about pain and your spine. It’s about how your entire system works together to create the most optimal function for you day after day.
Functional neurology is held to strict standards and utilizes the same testing and evaluation procedures as a medical neurologist. The difference is that functional neurology uses natural receptor-based therapies, eyes movements, head movements, visual stimulation, light stimulation, sound stimulation, electrical stimulation, and spinal and extremity manipulation to make changes in your neurological pathways in order to bring balance to your brain and nervous system without the use of drugs or surgery.
Functional medicine utilizes special comprehensive blood labs, stool testing, and saliva testing to identify specific areas that are commonly overlooked by traditional medicine. Functional medicine uses these special tests to direct therapies through the use of natural herbs and supplements in order to clear out chronic bacteria or parasites in the gut and to repair broken down metabolic pathways including vitamin deficiencies and inflammatory cascades (like irritable bowel syndrome or brain inflammation after a concussion) and help address these metabolic pathways from the inside out in order to help all therapies be even more effective.

We are out-of-network providers, meaning we do not have a contract with YOUR insurance company.
One of the most difficult certifications to obtain is the neurology chiropractic diplomate course. These diplomates are trained extensively in neuroscience, pathology, and non-surgical and non-medication based therapies that care for the most difficult neurological patients, often termed functional neurological patients because they don’t have a “pathology” or something wrong that can be identified on their blood work or MRI, but they’re severely burdened with issues like chronic pain, balance issues, headaches, chronic fatigue, neurodegenerative diseases like Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s, or even autoimmune diseases like Hashimoto’s or non-celiac disease gluten sensitivities. Diplomates in neurology identify the weakened areas through standardized neurological testing (that even your neurologist performs) and they begin rehabilitating the areas that are associated with sub-optimal performance.
It is used to decrease pain.
Very intense testing done and patients are often extremely fatigued and it gives the doctors a chance to review the new case.
Legally we cannot give you a discount, but we do offer a FREE visit for testimonials.
We often find patients neglect to tell us about new injuries so this gives the doctors an opportunity to re-evaluate you top to bottom.
Concussions are characterized by a constellation of neurological symptoms that can include but are not limited to:
- Headache or a feeling of pressure in the head
- Visual Changes or double vision
- Balance Problems or Dizziness
- Concentration and memory complaints
- Confusion or feeling as if in a fog
- Sensitivity to light and noise
- Ringing in the ears
- Slurred speech
- Delayed response to questions
- Appearing dazed
- Dizziness when rising from a seated or lying position
- Sleep disturbances
- Slowed mental function
Typically, individuals recover from concussions within 1-4 weeks depending on the severity of head injury, the health of the brain before the injury, and the proactive steps taken after the injury. If symptoms are still present after 4 weeks, this is considered chronic, and can be labeled as post-concussion syndrome.
Post-concussion syndrome is categorized as being symptomatic after the typical window of recovery has passed as stated above.
In a concussion, your brain is squished against the skull kind of like an egg-yolk inside an eggshell, and your brain-stem gets stretched, twisted, and can have micro-shearing. The brainstem contains all of your vital centers and interconnects other areas of your brain which include but are not limited to your cardiovascular, respiratory, and autonomic systems, as well as your balance and sensory systems and your reticular activating system.
