Chiropractic Neurology: A multi-modal approach

June 5, 2020

When we look at the human body, we are not looking at only one system, but of multiple systems that work in cooperation to create normal function.  In turn, one of the most common mistakes in healthcare is to compartmentalize conditions, looking at them segmentally, instead of analyzing all the potential causes.  Chiropractic Neurology utilizes...

Center of Pressure: What this means to posture, joint and spinal pain

June 4, 2020

If I drew a line right down the center of you, it should land in between your ankles. If I looked at you from the side, I should be able to draw a line from your ear and connect it straight down to your shoulder, then hip and finally your ankle. This is perfect center of pressure.  Now, if you think about this from an engineering perspective, it allows...

Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy enhances multitasking ability

June 4, 2020

The brain is the body's largest consumer of oxygen, utlizing roughly 20% of the total oxygen and consuming 25-30% of total glucose (1). Even though <10% of the brain's maximal capacity is active at any given time, the brain utilizes almost all delivered oxygen (2). In order to perform different tasks or more than one task at a time (multitasking), the...

A simple way to understand how mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy heals injured tissue

June 3, 2020

Under Hyperbaric Therapy (HBO2), Oxygen, which is a much smaller molecule than a Red Blood Cell (RBC), is pulled from the larger RBC, which is carrying the oxygen molecules to tissues via hemoglobin. RBC's are the vehicle transport for all oxygen within our body. After extraction, it is now concentrated within the surrounding plasma. This allows the smaller...

A new way to evaluate brain function

June 3, 2020

Functional Videonystagmography (fVNG) allows us to carefully look at specific eye movements that would not be seen with the naked eye, as they relate to brain function.  Different regions of our brain control different types of eye movement, pupillary response, and optokinetic function; assessing these eye movements is one of our greatest windows into...
