CHIROPRACTIC

Chiropractic is a philosophy of vitalistic health, a science of the nervous system, and the art of maximizing spinal function for the purpose of helping people regain their health naturally. By correcting interferences, known as subluxations, to the brain and nervous system, chiropractic care allows the body to operate at more efficient levels.

Chiropractors recognize that the nervous system controls and coordinates all the functions of the body. When you damage or interfere with the nervous system, it results in malfunction, diseases and infirmities, and reduced quality of life.

There are three interferences to the nervous system: physical trauma, environmental toxins and emotional stresses. Chiropractic is concerned with correcting interferences to the nervous system that result from spinal malfunction.

Visiting a chiropractor is an essential part of maintaining your and your family’s general wellness and constructing a productive, performance-centered lifestyle.

FUNCTIONAL
NEUROLOGY

Functional neurology is the practice of using chiropractic and functional neurological principles to analyze the various levels of the interference within the nervous system. Functional neurologists apply these principles and that of neuroplasticity to improve the efficiency of the nervous system and optimize cognitive function.Patients may come to the Midtown Clinic seeking neuro rehabilitation for serious conditions, such as concussion/TBI, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, stroke rehabilitation, and more. Others may seek care for conditions such as balance and vertigo issues, stress management or whiplash. Athletes and executives can also benefit from functional neurology care, pursuing high-performance goals to succeed in the game and in the boardroom.Families are encouraged to bring children of any age to be checked by the functional neurologists at Midtown Clinic. Proper evaluation of a developmental delay is critical, as these conditions begin during the developmental period, may impact day-to-day functioning and usually last throughout a person’s lifetime.

The clinical team pinpoints neurological dysfunction and, using the latest physical and neurological methods and procedures, creates care plans for cognitive rehabilitation, with the goals of maximizing function and greatly improving the quality of life.

  • Patients seek care for:
  • Concussion and traumatic brain injuries (TBI)

VITALISTIC
NUTRITION

One of the major interferences to the nervous system are environmental toxins. These include cigarette smoke, pesticides in food, mercury in fish, chemicals in drugs, and more. At the Midtown Clinic, we recognize that the nervous system and the body work better when these environmental toxins are eliminated.The foods we eat can affect every function of the body, which is why nutrition is one of the most important aspects of health. Nutritionists at Life University Health Systems analyze the effects of food as a whole, providing in-person support and recommendations to improve overall wellness, as well as creating healthy eating strategies for the entire family.Whether patients come to the clinic with diseases such as diabetes, Celiac disease, etc. or are seeking guidance with weight loss and management, how to improve energy levels and create healthy lifestyle behaviors, the nutritionists at Life University Health Systems will be their partners in life-sustaining, optimal nutrition.

FUNCTIONAL
KINESIOLOGY

Functional kinesiology works with the knowledge that there is an absolute need for everyone to have appropriate movement of the body. Kinesiology addresses physiological, biomechanical and psychological mechanisms of movement. This care includes rehabilitation for injuries, functional training for everyday life and peak performance elevation for athletes.Whatever level of health patients are in, the functional kinesiology professionals at Midtown Clinic will work to improve areas such as basic motor skills; rehabilitation of injured muscles, joints and ligaments; as well as targeted strength and conditioning.

POSITIVE
PSYCHOLOGY

In science today, we recognize that relationships are critical for the survival and wellbeing of the individual and the species. But what type of relationships best support health and wellbeing? Studies prove that negative attitudes, hate, anger and retribution are detrimental to health, whereas positive attitudes, forgiveness and reconciliation have clear health benefits and foster happier, more fulfilled lives.

Positive psychology examines the mental and behavioral aspects of health to maximize mental and emotional wellbeing. Instead of focusing on diagnosing mental illness, positive psychology facilitates the unique strengths of an individual, rather than bolstering their weaknesses. Care focuses on enhancing self-awareness and self-motivation, as well as developing leadership skills based on compassion, empathy and pro-social emotions.

With expert coaches on staff, Life University Health Systems works with patients to realize their best selves, overcoming personal hurdles to reach their goals as individuals, professionals, parents and more.
