Last week, I told you about Denise, who suffered from pain and swelling in her ankles and struggled with her weight for more than 40 years before coming to see us at Natural Healthcare Center.
By committing herself to a wellness program designed by Dr. Coetzee and myself, Denise changed her life. She no longer experiences pain or swelling in her ankles, and her weight is under control, which has reduced her chance of stroke, heart attack and type II diabetes. Denise is happier and more confident than ever.
As we continue to wind down 2013, the year of the family, I’d like to share another Natural Healthcare Center success story from Dr. Kurt Hostnik, our Clinical Director and board-certified chiropractic neurologist, experienced in successfully treating conditions like tinnitus, vertigo, inner ear imbalances and dizziness.
Chiropractic neurology, also called functional neurology, is the study of the nervous system – the brain, spinal cord and nerves – from a physiologic perspective. A medical neurologist will commonly prescribe medication to treat symptoms of a nervous system disorder. On the other hand, a chiropractic neurologist will typically prescribe therapy, based on knowledge of how the brain impacts joint and muscular disorders, to restore or improve function that has been affected by a nervous system disorder.
