Chiropractic Neurologists are highly trained and qualified experts of the brain, spine and nervous system. They are chiropractors who have continued with advanced post graduate training and testing to be able to provide all the standard chiropractic services and additionally, the specialized services that their advanced training allows.
Chiropractic neurologists, medical neurologists and neurosurgeons differ greatly in their methods of treatment. The medical neurologist will prescribe medications or injections. The neurosurgeon uses surgery to correct a condition. The chiropractic neurologist in Oregon uses medication free and non-surgical treatment methods.
Many conditions of the brain and nervous system do not respond well to aggressive interventions such as drug therapy or surgery. Additionally, the drug therapies used by medical neurologists, and the surgical interventions of the neurosurgeon often carry increased risks for serious complications or dangerous side effects. For this reason, chiropractic neurologists fill a unique and significant role in treating brain and nervous system disorders using safe and effective methods producing lasting health benefits.
Because chiropractic neurologists often have great success treating patients for whom all other treatment methods have failed, people often ask, “What makes a chiropractic neurologist so special?” The distinguishing factor is the paradigm, or approach that a chiropractic neurologist uses toward diagnosis and treatment. In addition to evaluating for pathologies as medical doctors do; a chiropractic neurologist evaluates for subtle changes in the function of the nervous system. It is this expertise in detecting subtle changes in function that sets a chiropractic neurologist apart from other specialists.
