State of the Art Brain Healing
As I stated in my recent Self-Care post, I explained I’d be writing to you periodically, but that I needed time to recover and recharge my batteries.
Since March is Brain Injury Awareness Month, I felt it important to honor this special month with a quick post to you about a topic related to brain injury recovery.
During my short break so far, I’ve had the opportunity to read and learn a great deal about innovative state-of-the-art stroke recovery techniques! It’s been a fascinating experience and one I will continue to explore indefinitely. I plan to share my learnings with all of you sometime in the future, as my plan is to continue at a slower pace for now and in the future. Slow and steady is my new mantra!
I’m also journaling about my thoughts and insights during this indefinite break, and will share all of that with you in future months. That being said, how are you doing about my self-care challenge to y’all? Have you been focusing on your personal self-care? Remember, I’ll be asking you for your insights as well, as this isn’t only my journey, but yours as well!
If you have any insights so far, please share them with us via the blog’s Comment section, or on our social media sites! We love to hear from all of you!
In line with the topic of state-of-the-art brain healing techniques, I want to re-share with you my previous post on Dr. Trevor Berry, who has been a pioneer in brain healing techniques for many years! He was definitely ahead of his time, but now his research and techniques are becoming mainstream, which is great for all of us!
Dr. Berry now spends his time between a full office practice in Chandler, AZ and lecturing worldwide about his work with the low-level laser he uses to heal my brain and others; as well as his research in all phases of his neurological work. Boy, was I lucky to have found him over 15 years ago!
Please enjoy the Science of Chiropractic Neurology. I have included a bit of his article here, but please click here to see the full post! Thursday we will follow up with my interview with Dr. Berry!
Have a great day everybody!
What is a Chiropractic Neurologist?
A Chiropractic Neurologist has advanced and extensive training in the field of Neurology. They are board certified through the ACNB (American Chiropractic Neurology Board) and are required to complete an additional 300+ hours of study and pass a vigorous 4-day exam to attain certification. They are trained in cutting edge neuroscience, neurological pathways, and the most effective neurological therapies as science defines them. A Chiropractic Neurologist looks at the patient in a different light. It’s not just about pain and your spine. It’s about how your entire system works together to create the most optimal function for you day after day.
How is a chiropractic neurologist different than a medical neurologist or a neurosurgeon?
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 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.
What is the difference between a chiropractor & Chiropractic Neurologist?
In addition to the lack of extensive neurological training, straight chiropractors believe that nearly all diseases are caused by issues with the spine, they don’t believe they need any diagnostic tools. Traditional testing done by medical doctors and hospitals is not even considered by a straight chiropractor as being necessary. Diagnosis is done by finding the subluxations in the spine so that those can be corrected. The added neuro training combines the two – the essential connection between the spine to the brain.
