What is Chiropractic Neurology?
Chiropractic Neurology is quite simply a chiropractor with a special interest in the intricacies of the neurological system and the treatment of dizziness, balance and coordination problems, headaches and migraines.
The primary goal of your brain is movement. Your brain uses your eyes, your ears and the feedback from your muscles and joints to create a 3D map of your body and your environment. All movement is based on these sensory maps. If you’re suffering from pain, dizziness, balance or coordination problems this may be due to a physical lesion or it may be that your brain is having trouble creating these sensory maps and healthy movement patterns.
Your brain and nerves are highly adaptive throughout your lifetime. As a child this allows you to learn to walk, talk and play. As an adult it allows you to learn new skills. It also allows us to heal remarkable well from injury. However, sometimes this adaptive response is incomplete and occasionally it can work against us. Sometimes pain nerves become increasingly painful after injury, or dizziness results in chronic anxiety and stress, this is where we may be able to help.
