When there is an imbalance in your nervous system, the temperature of the skin at that area will change. Dr. Zurek uses infrared Thermography (neurothermal scan) a tool that shows us how your nervous system is functioning. We do tests to determine function of different areas of the brain and figure which areas are strong and which areas are weak.
Chiropractic Neurologists are highly trained and qualified experts of the brain, spine and nervous system. As in medicine, the chiropractic profession has specialists who serve their community’s patients, as well as providing expert evaluations and consultation to other physicians and health care practitioners.
The medical neurologist will prescribe medications or injections. The neurosurgeon uses surgery to correct a condition. Chiropractic neurology uses medication free and non-surgical treatment methods.
Dr. Zurek has found that many conditions of the brain and nervous system do not respond well to aggressive interventions such as drug therapy or surgery. Additionally, the drug therapies used by medical neurologists, and the surgical interventions of the neurosurgeon often carry increased risks for serious complications or dangerous side effects.
