What You Need To Know About Chiropractic Neurology

by Terry Wilson

Chiropractic neurology, say what? If you've never heard of this type of care, you're not alone. However, it's becoming increasingly popular as people are beginning to understand the potential benefits that chiropractic neurology can provide. Here's a closer look at what chiropractic neurology is and how it can help.

What Is Chiropractic Neurology?

Chiropractic neurology is a type of health care that focuses on diagnosing and treating neurological disorders. It is based on the understanding that the body's nervous system controls all other systems in the body, including the musculoskeletal, digestive, cardiovascular, and respiratory systems. As a result, chiropractic neurology can help with a wide range of conditions, from chronic pain to depression.

What Does Chiropractic Neurology Treat? 

Chiropractic neurologists are chiropractors who specialize in treating neurological disorders, including:

  • Migraines
  • Vertigo
  • Balance and coordination issues
  • Multiple sclerosis
  • Parkinson's disease
  • Alzheimer's disease
  • Autism spectrum disorder
  • Epilepsy
  • Stroke and Bell's palsy

Additionally, chiropractic neurology can help treat various post-concussion symptoms and chronic pain syndromes such as fibromyalgia. 

How Does It Work? 

Chiropractic neurology aims to improve your overall health by optimizing your body's nervous system function. To do this, chiropractors use a variety of techniques, including:

  • Spinal manipulation. Spinal manipulation is a technique used to restore proper alignment of the spine.
  • Soft tissue therapy. Soft tissue therapies such as massage, trigger point work, and myofascial release can help to improve muscle and joint function.
  • Exercise therapy. Exercise therapy can help you strengthen weak muscles and restore your range of motion.
  • Nutrition counseling. Nutrition counseling can help you make healthy lifestyle changes and optimize your nutrition for optimal health.
  • Ultrasound. Ultrasound can help to reduce inflammation and pain, improve circulation, and speed healing.
  • Electrical stimulation. Electrical stimulation sends pulses of electricity to the muscles, which can help improve strength and reduce pain.
  • Acupuncture. Acupuncture is a traditional Chinese medicine approach that involves the stimulation of certain areas of the body with needles to restore balance and promote healing.
  • Biofeedback. Biofeedback is a technique that helps you to become more aware of your body's signals, so you can better control your response to stress and pain.

Additionally, since all these treatments are non-invasive, there is little to no risk, making chiropractic neurology suitable for adults and children alike.

Chiropractic neurology is a growing field in healthcare that offers many potential benefits for those seeking relief without the risks associated with traditional treatments like medication or surgery. By focusing on identifying and treating underlying causes instead of masking symptoms, patients can experience lasting relief.
