Effectiveness of Chiropractic neuro-rehabilitation

Chiropractic neuro-rehabilitation

Chiropractic neuro-rehabilitation is particularly effective in addressing a spectrum of conditions that manifest through neurological symptoms such as dizziness, vertigo, headache, blurred vision, whiplash, brain fog, and unstable gait. This specialised approach integrates chiropractic care with targeted neurological rehabilitation techniques to alleviate symptoms and improve overall neurological function.

Chiropractic neuro-rehabilitation employs a personalised approach, beginning with a thorough assessment to identify the underlying causes of neurological symptoms. Treatment plans are tailored to address specific deficits and challenges, integrating chiropractic adjustments with rehabilitative techniques that promote neurological healing and functional improvement.

In order to properly respond to the environment, we first need to properly know where we are in the world.  We do this using visual inputs from our eyes, vestibular inputs from our inner ear, proprioceptive inputs from muscles and joints, and to a lesser extent we localise with our hearing.

Poor function of visual, vestibular, proprioceptive systems and hearing can be found at the heart of most central neurological disorders. Impaired function and failed integration of these systems can produce symptoms ranging from dizziness and balance problems to headaches and chronic pain states. Problems with the integration of these systems can be found in everything from attention and concentration difficulties to movement disorders. Rehabilitation of these systems and their integration can often help improve function in all of these disorders.

We use a number of different software and hardware platforms to evaluate these systems and their integration. We use them therapeutically in your unique neurorehabilitation program to restore your balance and systems integration, so you can get back to living your best life.

As an example:

  • Techniques such as cervical spine adjustments and vestibular rehabilitation exercises aim to alleviate inner ear disturbances, thus reducing symptoms of dizziness and vertigo;

  • Cognitive symptoms such as brain fog can arise from neurological dysfunctions. Chiropractic neuro-rehabilitation may include brain-based therapies and cognitive exercises designed to stimulate neurological pathways, enhance cognitive function, and alleviate symptoms of brain fog;

  • Problems with gait stability often stem from issues in the musculoskeletal system and impaired neurological function. Chiropractic adjustments, along with balance and coordination exercises, can improve proprioception and muscle coordination, leading to a more stable gait and reduced risk of falls.

By restoring proper spinal alignment, enhancing nervous system function, and addressing musculoskeletal imbalances, chiropractic neuro-rehabilitation aims to alleviate symptoms, improve mobility, and enhance overall quality of life for individuals experiencing neurological issues. This holistic approach underscores the importance of optimising both spinal and neurological health to achieve comprehensive symptom relief and long-term wellness.
