Neurology is a Specialty in the field of Chiropractic.
Chiropractic Neurologists utilize a thorough neurologically based physical
exam performed with a keen eye for subtle areas of poor function. These
obvious, or hard signs, as well as the subtle, or soft signs, reveal
a pattern of dysfunction that will help to understand the patient’s
unique problem in very specific terms.Intervention is then customized
to the unique needs of the patient and strives to normalize function
in the nervous system.
This process of normalization involves managing stimulation,
or pre-synaptic drive, into specific areas of the central nervous system
to improve integration of neurological signaling for the purpose of
improving neuron health and neurological function.Functional improvements
can be seen ranging from relatively focal specific areas to an entire
hemisphere and even global neurologic function.
Therapies utilized include a wide range of somatosensory
stimulation techniques such as articular or joint mobilization, muscle
stretch reflexes, vestibular stimulation using the reflexes involved
in balance and motion, light, color, sound or various tactile stimuli
such as vibration, light touch and temperature as well as other techniques.
