Chiropractic Neurology

Chiropractic Neurology, also known as Functional Neurology, is an exclusive sub-specialty within chiropractic. A rigorous three years of additional training and Board examination in the functions of the brain and nervous system (similar to those which a medical neurologist undergoes) better enable us to diagnosis and treat many conditions such as concussion, head pain, migraine, cluster and tension headaches; neurologic disorders such as Bells Palsy (facial paralysis), Meniere's Disease (ringing in the ear), dizziness, stroke, tingling and numbness in the arms and legs; neck, shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand pain; scoliosis, mid-back and digestive disorders; low back, hip, knee, ankle and foot pain; car accident, work-related and slip-and-fall injuries.

Chiropractic neurological treatments include: exercise rehabilitation (on premise), stretching, nutritional counseling, massage, physical therapy and spinal decompression. The focus on muscles, ligaments and tendons to rebalance the nervous system allows for fewer spinal manipulations than those used by regular doctors of chiropractic.

Finest Chiropractic Neurology Education Available

The Chiropractic educational community recognized the need for expanding its specialized training and in 1979 initiated a three-year post-doctoral course in Clinical Neurology. ( Board Certified Chiropractic Neurologists (known as Functional Neurologists because MDs, DOs and PTs are, also, pursuing this advanced degree) are Doctors of Chiropractic who have completed post-doctoral training in clinical neurology whose program is approved by the Continuing Education Committee of the Commission for the Accreditation of Graduate Education in Neurology. The diplomat program requires a minimum of 300 credit hours and competency in written and practical examinations administered by the ACNB. Currently certified Chiropractic Neurologists must obtain 30 approved chiropractic neurologic credits per year.
