When you think of a chiropractor, you think of getting help for injuries like neck pain, low back pain, pulled muscles, and general alignment and balance of the spine and body.

But did you know that chiropractors can help with health conditions such as migraines, concussions, multiple sclerosis, and more?

That’s right! Neurological chiropractors can help to ease and improve neurologically based conditions like those mentioned above.

 If you have a neurological condition and you’ve found little to no results or comfort from traditional medications or surgeries, a chiropractic neurologist may be able to help!


Chiropractic Neurology

Neurology is the study of the nervous system, brain, and spinal cord. It focuses on the understanding and helping of those with diseases and conditions that affect these areas.

Diseases and conditions include Parkinson’s, neuropathy, migraines, concussions, MS, seizures, and stroke.

When seeking help for these conditions, surgery and medication options might have already been exhausted.

This is where chiropractors may have an in-depth knowledge of how to help those with conditions of the brain, spinal cord, and nervous system.

Career Explorer, a website dedicated to helping those understand careers throughout different industries, perfectly explained what a chiropractic neurologist does. “ The chiropractic neurologist is an expert in therapies directed by an understanding of the brain’s role in joint and muscle dysfunction. The treatments activate the natural processes of neuroplasticity, which involve the changing of neurons, the organization of their networks, and their function through therapy and brain function rehabilitation.”

Chiropractic neurologists treat without invasive surgeries or medications. That is what allows them to stand apart from typical neurologists in the medical field.

The idea of chiropractic care, in the first place, is to align the spine and balance the nervous system for complete body homeostasis.
