Vestibular MigrainesRead Now
My husband was recently diagnosed with vestibular migraines after 2 months of testing and constant headaches alongside other symptoms of vertigo.
I’m trying to be as proactive as possible to get him relief in any way as we are about to have our second child in September. He has been put on Topamax although we aren’t thrilled about possible side effects, I know he’s desperate for the day of feeling normal again.
Is this something you’re familiar with, have had success treating? I’ve been recommended to seek a neurological chiropractor for additional treatment options so I’m hoping I’m in the right place.
Yes, you are contacting the right place. Chiropractic neurologist provides treatments for vestibular migraines, dizziness, vertigo, blurred vision, imbalance, headaches, drowsiness, fatigue, sensitivity to light, and nausea.
Of the approximately 1.3 million (1) people, diagnosed annually with a mild traumatic injury, like concussion, 80% to 90% follow a normal recovery course with full symptom resolution within 3 months of injury.(2,3) The remaining 10% to 20% who are refractory to conventional care may have persistent post-concussion impairments lasting months to years.(4,5) These impairments can include poor performance on divided-attention and dual-tasks activities that combine physical demand (ie, balance and gait) with cognitive loads.(6,7)
Mild traumatic brain injury can compromise reaction time, visual perception, memory, attention, balance, and gait. These deficits, especially if persistent, can restrict participation in daily activities and the resumption of personal and profession roles. (8)
Treatments for motor vehicle accident injury concussion, slip and fall concussion or mild traumatic injury concussion consisted of clinical techniques including optokinetic stimulation, vestibular rehabilitation and postural stability exercises, targeting specific impairments.
After a month treatment, most patients demonstrated significant increases in postural and gait balance with a near complete resolution of all post-concussion symptoms. They successfully returned to normal daily life.

Parkinson disease (PD) is one of the most common neurologic disorders, affecting approximately 1% of individuals older than 60 years and causing progressive disability that can be slowed, but not halted, by treatment
The progression of Parkinson disease is chronic and slow and taking more than 10 years. If we recognized early signs of Parkinson disease, we could delay or prevent Parkinson’s disease.
Most common first signs of Parkinson disease are loss or decreased sense of smell, decreased arm swing on the first-involved side, shoulder pain/rigid, and sleep disturbances. If you are older than 60 years old with these early signs, please consult with a chiropractic neurologist near you. Chiropractic neurologists can stimulate your weak area of brain with specific brain based treatments. They also provide nutritional evaluation and treatment plan for Parkinson’s disease.
Other clinical symptoms of Parkinson disease include upper extremity tremor, subtle decrease in dexterity, soft voice, decreased facial expression, rapid eye movement (REM) behavior disorder (RBD; a loss of normal atonia during REM sleep), symptoms of autonomic dysfunction (eg, constipation, sweating abnormalities, sexual dysfunction, seborrheic dermatitis), a general feeling of weakness, malaise, or lassitude, depression or anhedonia, slowness in thinking, progressive bradykinesia, rigidity, gait difficulty, flexed posture, and variable strides, postural instability.
Early recognition of the symptoms can promote early diagnosis and thus early intervention, which often results in a better quality of life. Chiropractic neurologist can provide a brain based treatment for Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer disease, supranuclear palsy, frontal lobe degeneration and persons with traumatic brain injury, auto accident injury or whiplash injury who has symptoms like loss of sense of smell, personality changes, visual disturbance, difficult speaking, hearing loss, headache, balance problems, decreased arm swing, shoulder pain/rigid, sleep disturbances and difficult walking, etc.

1. Seek treatment immediately to reduce the likelihood of healing wrong permanently
2. Treat the inflammation immediately
3. Do not take medications for more than a few days they inhibit collagen the healing tissue from forming.
4. Start physical medicine as soon as possible to allow for proper healing within the joints
5. Be aware there are three types of motion to be restored after an injury: active-like exercise, passive-like a therapist, joint motion-chiropractic adjustment
6. Be aware there are 3 phases to healing: inflammation-takes 72 hours, repair phase-takes 6 to 12 weeks, remodel phase-3 to 12 months.
7. Healing does not start until after the inflammation phase is reduced why it is critical to control the inflammation
8. The repair phase is when the healing begins and starts with 72 hours of the injury and last up to 12 weeks thereafter.
9. The repair phase of healing is a short window of time after an injury where the healing tissue is laid down to repair the damaged tissue. That tissue is called collagen.
10. If during the repair phase of healing the healing tissue called collagen is not properly treated with physical medicine the chances of a permanent injury are significantly increased.
11. One factor during the healing phase after an injury is collagen formation. If the collagen is not treated properly it will heal only 70% as strong as the original tissue leading to the likelihood of future injury.
12. One factor during the healing phase after an injury is collagen formation. If the collagen is not properly treated with it will heal with less elasticity and mobility than the original tissue, this leads to stiffness and restriction in that area in the future.
13. One factor during the healing phase after an injury is collagen formation. If the collagen is not properly treated with physical medicine there will be an increase number of peripheral nerves leading to permanent pain in that area.
14. One factor during the healing phase after an injury is collagen formation. If the collagen is not properly treated with physical medicine the nerves heal more sensitive. This leads to pain in the injured area in the future.
15. During the repair phase of healing which last from 3 days to 12 weeks after an injury be sure to have physical medicine applied to the affected area.
16. During the healing phase do not just take medications for the treatment of the injury. Medications such as anti-inflammatory and cortisones based medications will inhibit the healing tissue collagen from forming leading to weak and stiff tissue.
