Chiropractic neurology has been getting added press lately via hockey star, Sidney Crosby, who has been treated successfully for concussion symptoms by chiropractic neurologist, Ted Carrick. Carrick claims that he can treat a variety of brain disorders with manipulation along with targeted exercises. There are miraculous testimonials from people who have had their eyesight and hearing restored, along with those who have recovered from being in a coma.
Dr. Mark Friedman, a chiropractic neurologist who trained under Dr. Ted Carrick, uses the body, adjustments and the environment to bring about improvements to your health. He treats the musculoskeletal system as it interacts with the neurological system to improve your quality of life.

Dr. Karen will be interviewing Dr. George Gonzalez, founder of Quantum Neurology Rehabilitation.
Dr. George Gonzalez's life’s work was uncovered through the journey of his wife’s spinal cord injury and recovery. One day his wife returned home from a massage session, barely able to walk or move the bottom half of her body. In one session with Dr. Marc Pick, D.C. a Doctor of Chiropractic who was well versed in neurology, she was able to walk again.
This experience revealed the amazing healing power of the Nervous System. Dr. Gonzalez immersed himself in the study of neurology and used his background in martial arts and chriopractic study to expand his thinking.
He successfully developed a customized healing technique that engages the natural healing powers of the nervous system called "Quantum Neurology Rehabilitation." He has been teaching these techniques around the world for over 10 years and has written four books on such healing techniques and practices.
Concussions are getting much-needed attention from the press, especially given the short and long-term cognitive loss, early-onset dementia, physical disability and even death resulting from traumatic brain injury (TBI).
One newly recognized specialty is chiropractic neurology, that had been used by hockey star Sidney Crosby recently. His chiropractic neurologist, Ted Carrick, uses a specific treatment for TBI treatment.
Chiropractic can be more then adjusting the subluxations in your body. Chiropractic neurology is an excellent example of why we need science-based practices to treat serious brain injury.

Do you struggle with “stuck” emotions? Do you ask yourself, “Why did I do that?” When we suffer trauma as children our brains are often unable to develop to their fullest potential. Neurological Reorganization (NR) is a movement based therapy that creates efficient connections between the brain and various systems of the body to help people reach their highest potential. NR uses the reflexes that we all have programmed into our brain to allow us to relearn how to do what it needs to do. We are able to improve brain/body function as we go back and retrace the normal developmental steps that healthy infants and children take. NR reorganizes the traumatized brain through developmental movement, sensory, and reflexive activities and addresses the root cause of many disorders and disabilities, bringing about higher level functioning.
