What is the difference between a chiropractic and medical neurologist ?

Chiropractic neurologists are trained in the diagnosis and management of neurological conditions with an emphasis on neurological rehabilitation.  As chiropractors, we prefer to use natural and conservative methods to support the body’s ability to heal, and treatment strategies that can restore and optimize function in health and disease.  If patients require specific medications or surgical interventions, we refer them to the appropriate medical specialist to provide this portion of care.

Hand Injuries: when is it time to see a doctor?

I see a lot of rock climbers with hand injuries in my practice.  This isn’t very surprising since these are the most common injuries in the sport.  What does concern me is that many climbers have old hand injuries that have been neglected or unrecognized.  The most obvious signs are finger deformity, a history of persistent swelling, and limited range of motion. 

Is it a migraine?

If you are experiencing recurrent episodes of throbbing head pain, sensitivity to light and sound, nausea and blurred vision, chances are you are having a migraine headache. If this is your first episode with these symptoms this could be a medical emergency and must be evaluated immediately.
