As in medicine, the chiropractic profession has specialists who serve
their community’s patients, as well as providing expert evaluations and
consultation to other physicians and health care practitioners.

advanced post graduate training and testing to be able to provide all
the standard chiropractic services and additionally, the specialized

How is a chiropractic neurologist
different than a medical neurologist or a neurosurgeon?
neurologists, medical neurologists and neurosurgeons differ greatly in
their methods of treatment.
The medical neurologist will prescribe medications or injections. The
neurosurgeon uses surgery to correct a condition. The chiropractic
neurologist uses medication free and non-surgical treatment methods.
Many conditions of the brain and nervous system do not respond well to
aggressive interventions such as drug therapy or surgery. Additionally,
the drug therapies used by medical neurologists, and the surgical
interventions of the neurosurgeon often carry increased risks for
serious complications or dangerous side effects.
For this reason, chiropractic neurologists fill a unique and significant
role in treating brain and nervous system disorders using safe and
effective methods producing lasting health benefits.
