Traumatic Brain Injury/Concussion
A traumatic brain injury results from a blow to the head or body that affects the complex function of brain tissue. These brain injuries can present with a multitude of symptoms and potential disabilities. The good news, approximately 90% resolve without lasting difficulties.

Neurological disorders are a very broad topic that involve over 600 conditions regarding the brain or nerves. These can range from nerve compression syndromes such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Tarsal Tunnel syndrome to choreas, Multiple Sclerosis, Parkinson’s Disease, Alzheimer’s, dementias and strokes just to name a few.

Headaches & Migraines
Headaches can be due to many reasons: poor posture, stress/tension, TMJ/clenching the jaws, eye strain, high blood pressure, low or high blood sugar, sinus infection/irritation, and others.
Migraines are commonly chronic and usually confined to one side of the head. These can be due to excessive or insufficient blood flow to the brain, resulting in a “congestion” of blood. This is commonly caused by changes in one’s autonomic control of blood into the head. Click here to view FAQs about Headaches & Migraines.
Sports injuries are those sustained while playing or participating in a sporting event whether it was during a competition or as a “weekend” warrior. Most of these injuries are “self resolving” and will be gone after three to four days. We are concerned with the problems that linger weeks or months later and “won’t go away.” Click here to view FAQs about Sports Injuries.
Muscle & Joint Issues
When muscles are injured, this often opens the door for increasingly complex damage to the joints of the body. The back, arms/shoulders or joints of the lower body are particularly susceptible to further injury. Click here to learn more about Muscle & Joint Issues.
ADHD & Autism
ADD/ADHD is thought to be caused by an underdeveloped area of the front of the brain. Just like any muscle weakness needs to be strengthened, so this also applies for the underdeveloped areas of the brain. Specific neurorehabilitation exercises can help to improve these problems, usually without the use of medications or stimulates.
Autism symptoms, according to current research, appear to be the result of growing connections or synapses, slower than normal. This slower than normal growth between nerve cells results in a constellation of symptoms. In an effort to properly encourage & strengthen the underdeveloped areas of the brain, physicians in our office would first take a detailed history and complete comprehensive neurological and/or orthopedic exams.

A movement disorder is classified as any neurologic syndrome in which there is either too much movement or an unwanted pause of voluntary and automatic movements. These movements are not related to a weakness or spasticity. Common movement disorders include: Ataxia, Dystonia or muscle spasms, tics and tremors. Click here to view FAQs about Movement Disorders.
Anxiety or panic attacks are a very common problem. They usually begin with persistent, excessive, and unrealistic worry about everyday events. Excessive and unrealistic worry left unchecked can lead to panic attacks, which are sudden surges of overwhelming anxiety and fear. Click here to learn more about Anxiety & Panic Attacks.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, “Each year, millions of older people—those 65 and older—fall. In fact, one out of three older people falls each year” (CDC, 2015). A fall can easily become a severe injury and the high costs associated with recovery are staggering. We focus on helping adults find and maintain a strong sense of balance, regardless of age.
