Depression/Anxiety: Brain Imbalance

June 9, 2020

Depression and anxiety are common threads among our culture these days. Our current medical model of treatment consists of pharmaceuticals to balance neurotransmitter levels. Yet, they often create other, more harmful symptoms than depression or anxiety. I guess the question I would ask, is it worth it? Much of neurology is now considering inflammatory...

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...

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...

When we experience a concussion our nerve axons (connections) are stretched!

February 16, 2017

If you connected all of our neurons, they would stretch around the earth four times. That's 100 billion neurons that make up our brain, all connected to create a framework that allows for incredible function, allowing us to love, create, think, imagine, dream, move, plan, focus, speak and the list goes on. However, our brains are so miraculous, not based...

Unfortunately, many of us do not get enough Oxygen required by the brain to work at our full potential....

Migraines: Why we are getting tremendous results with Chiropractic Neurology

April 5, 2016

To understand Migraines, you need to understand the mechanism that causes them. So often, I am puzzled by the care that I see Migraine sufferers receiving in an attempt to "control" migraines. I have since realized that there aren't many practitioners out there that truly understand migraines and their cause. Migraine pain is severe, often one sided,...

Mild Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy for Neurological conditions and Brain Injury

What isn't understood is that even though we are breathing, oxygen is not perfusing areas of the body sufficient for optimal function and healing. Our brain, specifically the autonomic nervous system, regulates where blood flow will be increased or decreased in...
