Chiropractic Neurology is a science-based health care specialty that focuses on optimizing the function of the nervous system using conservative therapies to improve health. This specialty involves a functional approach to the analysis and treatment of the nervous system. Chiropractic neurologists are specialists in evaluating the function of the brain and nervous system. This is particularly valuable for patients with difficult conditions who have been unable to obtain a named diagnosis or solution for their problem. Often, this is as a result of physiological dysfunction rather than a named process of pathology (disease).
