To understand chiropractic neurology, you must first understand that all chiropractic care is centered around the nervous system, as it was formed on the principle that disease stems from the dysfunction of the nervous system. Nerves are all over our bodies and can cause more trouble than you’d think. We still use many of the original chiropractic techniques that were developed in 1895, when chiropractic care began. Now we have a better understanding of the exact science behind it and have developed further techniques and chiropractic adjustments to accurately address many ailments.
Chiropractic neurology deals with dysfunction of the nervous system through receptor activation, or, by specific activation of parts of the nervous system depending on one’s individual loss of neurologic function. We increase spinal and extremity function, and as a chiropractic neurologist, Dr. Stelzer can direct his treatment to your exact area of pain and discomfort. This treatment is so specific that we can target one side of the body or one side of the brain to create a more balanced body.
Dr. Stelzer has the technology to test the nerves in your body through NCV (nerve conduction velocity) to more accurately diagnose and treat your symptoms. The testing can prove to be very valuable, but these procedures are only performed if Dr. Stelzer deems it appropriate. These tests should only be performed by certified and experienced physicians. If another doctor has suggested you receive these tests, come see Dr. Stelzer.
Chiropractic neurology, with its detailed direction, leads to more accurate diagnoses and treatments. Whether you’re suffering from neurological disorders like vertigo or sciatica, or common knee and neck pain, Dr. Stelzer will be able to target the source of your pain and devise a plan to relieve it.
