Neurologically Enriched Chiropractic
What is Neurologically-Enriched Chiropractic? The premise of Chiropractic care has always had its' roots in finding health for patients by improving the functioning of nervous system. Sometimes that meant moving bones to relieve "pinched nerves" or "slipped discs". While this model is familiar to most people there is another vast side to this type of hands on physical medicine that is only recently gaining a better understanding. Now appropriate neurologic applitions in Chiropractic care can be offer help for previously diffcult to treat disorders. In addition to the convential benefits associated with Chriopractic new hope is now being offered for head injuries/concussive disorders, processing abnormalities associated with impaired learning, vestibular disorders head and facial pain, numbness/tingling and certain complex neurologic disorders. Advanced Pain Relief Clinic is happy to offer care for common and complex conditions alike.

At Advanced Pain Relief Clinic, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be contributing to; or causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your total care and pain relief or wellness plan. Often compensations for painful movement can cause other areas to become painful or dysfunctional. For example we often see patients for post-surgical pain. Sometimes this is due due to scar-tissue (which we are effective at treating) but many times it is due old movement patterns associated with pain movemnet of an arthritic knee for example that perpetiates pain. The end result is the surgery is a success but the pain remains or favouring for a sore right knee causes compensatory mechnisms in the opposite hip often leading to premature wear-and-tear. In cases like these "special exercises" can "reset" the abnormal adopted movement patterns to lead to better long term pain relief and wellness and possibly decrease the need for avoidable surgery.
