Imagine living with chronic pain so severe that you have to wear sunglasses 24 hours a day or cannot hug your loved ones or walk more than a few feet without stumbling. Pain that severe is a reality for many and millions more suffer from some form of chronic pain each day. In fact, it is perhaps the most costly health problem in the U.S. today, and for many, treatment involves physical therapy, drugs or even surgery. Sadly, many chronic pain sufferers still do not get the results they need to live a normal, happy and full life.
There is another option and it is gaining ground as an alternative to these traditional treatments. Chiropractic neurology is a non-invasive treatment method that couples the orthopedic science of chiropractic care with the most current techniques available to assess and rehabilitate the central nervous system resulting in treatment specific to the body and the brain. A true understanding of the connections between the body and brain allows Dr. Ellis and his team to assist patients return to a state of well-being while many other treatments have failed. By using non-invasive and non-surgical stimulation of other parts of the body through practices such as chiropractic adjustments, brain exercises, light, heat, water, sound and electric stimulation, pathways in the brain are reactivated and in many cases, improvement can be seen almost immediately and without drugs.
While drugs mask pain, chiropractic neurology seeks to find and eliminate the underlying cause of the pain. Once treated, the need for costly drugs and therapies is eliminated. So what types of conditions benefit through from Chiropractic Neurology? Patients have reported relief from a number of conditions including migraine headaches, vertigo, traumatic brain injuries, carpal tunnel, neck and back pain, sports injuries, acid reflux, arthritis, weak bladder and even depression. Just take a look at the testimonials that Dr. Ellis has received to see examples of some of the success stories.
Recently featured in a story on ABC’s Nightline, as well as “Body & Soul with Gail Harris”, a PBS series dedicated to health and well-being, Chiropractic Neurology is gaining exposure and more and more people are benefitting from the practice. Dr. Ellis continues to be on the forefront of this amazing practice and brings knowledge of current advancements in the field to his patients and colleagues alike. For more information on this exciting practice, take a look at the Nightline video presented here.
