Chiropractic Neurology marries the biomechanics/orthopedic aspect of chiropractic care with the latest techniques of assessment and series of built in reflexes to respond or react to the internal(body) and external environment . This rehabilitation of the central nervous system. The nervous system consist of the brain, spinal vertebra , spinal nerves which carry information from body to the brain and vise versa, and response depends on how the brain integrates incoming information. Chiropractic neurology is on the forefront of this exciting new era in neurology focusing on natural, brain-based therapies to provide more effective and safer relief on what was thought to be the most resistant cases.

Applied Kinesiology is a test of functional neurology - how the nervous system manifests in the musculoskeletal system. Applied Kinesiology is based on an understanding of connections between muscles, organs, glands, body chemistry, Acupuncture Meridians, the brain and nervous system. Using muscle testing as its primary tool, it offers an insight into the way your own body creates patterns through movement. It is also used to assess the status of primitive survival reflexes and patterns of responses developed throughout life. Some additional applications include its ability to assess head and neck stability, structural balance, posture and muscular coordination. Kinesiology was developed by Dr. George Goodheart, who was also the first Official US Olympic team chiropractor to serve due to his superior knowledge of the human body.

Functional Medicine is the emerging field of integrative, patient-centered healthcare emphasizing on nutrition and lifestyle intervention. The model focuses on primary prevention and underlying causes to serious chronic disease verses a symptomatic approach. Functional Medicine is guided by the following principles:

"The doctor of the future will give no medicine but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame in diet and in cause and prevention of disease." ~Thomas Edison
