Recover Faster After Injury with Acupuncture & Chiropractic Neurology

Chiropractic neurology is a specialized form of chiropractic care focused on the treatment of neurological disorders.  Neurological disorders are problems rooted in the nervous system and include neurodegenerative disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, autoimmune conditions such as Multiple Sclerosis, movement disorders such as restless leg syndrome, dystonia and Huntington’s chorea, stroke, traumatic brain injuries, learning disabilities such as ADHD, and peripheral nervous system disorders such as radiculopathy and neuropathy. Our chiropractic neurologist Dr. Christopher DeMartini DC, DACNB has completed three additional years of study to augment his training as a chiropractor.  Dr. DeMartini is qualified to diagnose and treat a wide range of neurological disorders.  Dr. DeMartini uses his extensive knowledge of functional neurology – the study of the inter-relationships of an individual's nervous systems within the context of their overall health – to help patients heal faster after injury.

Depending on your injury and the extent of nervous system dysfunction, Dr. DeMartini may recommend treatments such as neuromuscular re-education exercises, stimulation of the vestibular (balance), auditory, visual or other sensory systems and chiropractic adjustments if and when needed.
If you have sustained a combat sports injury, chiropractic care and acupuncture can help your body safely heal faster. Acupuncture treatments support local healing of injuries, reduce inflammation and swelling, improve sleep efficiency, and enhance the body’s natural immune response to fight off infections more efficiently. Acupuncture also increases levels of natural pain fighting hormones, reducing the need for prescription painkillers and other medications. Sprains, strains, muscle tears, broken bones and even bruises can heal faster following acupuncture treatments.


Specialized Care Tailored to Elite Athlete: Injury Treatment & Prevention

As a martial artist herself, our Licensed Acupuncturist Elham Khodabandeloo understands first-hand the importance of promptly and properly treating all sports injuries. Together with Dr. Christopher DeMartini, Elham is passionate about creating synergized treatment protocols that unlock the body’s ability to heal from within. Traditional Chinese Medicine, including acupuncture and herbs, will encourage proper blood circulation and facilitate the release of chemical mediators that accelerate healing, reduce pain and resolve inflammation. For our elite athletes, we also offer a preventive care program that heightens mental focus while building stamina, endurance, strength, balance, agility, timing, speed, reaction time, and movement accuracy.


California Neurohealth is committed to helping our San Luis Obispo and Greater Central Coasts area patients heal faster after injury, naturally manage pain, and achieve optimal wellness through Traditional Chinese Medicine, including herbs and acupuncture, and advanced chiropractic neurology, functional neurological rehabilitation and brain-based sports performance methods.
