NEURO CHIROPRACTIC CENTER
At the Insight Neuro Chiropractic Center, you get so much more than a quick treatment. You get over 20 years of clinical experience and the expertise of a board-certified functional neurology practitioner. Our doctors invest the time to carefully diagnose the cause of your pain and explain to you how to best alleviate that pain.
There are many causes of back pain, neck pain, headaches, and numbness and tingling in the arms and legs. Many of these causes are mechanical and can be helped significantly by chiropractic care. Other causes of pain include poor nutrition, stress, lifestyle, effects from medication, and serious disease.
Because Insight features a large, multidisciplinary team, you have more options and dedicated physicians working for you than at other chiropractic offices. Our doctors work diligently to make sure you have and get all the help you need.

Auto Accident Injury Care
Traditional Chiropractic Care
Many people assume that chiropractors only treat neck and back issues because chiropractic adjustments are performed directly on the spine. While the elimination of neck and back pain is certainly one focus, chiropractors treat many other conditions. The spinal column encases the nervous system, and the nervous system controls the numerous intricate functions of the human body. When the spine is misaligned, it will create disease within the nervous system, altering the way the human body is designed to function.
Chiropractic adjustments, along with other therapies and techniques, are combined in our office to create a whole-body approach. This may mean a preventative approach to health and wellness or recovery from traumatic injuries to the spine and extremities.
Our clinic offers the following chiropractic therapy services:
- Therapeutic massage
- Mechanical/therapeutic traction
- Spinal decompression therapy
- Myofascial release
- Nerve flossing
- Diversified manipulation
- Drop-assisted manipulation
- Ergonomics Counseling
- Spinal rehabilitative protocols
- Autism Spectrum Behavioral Therapy
Functional neurology is a relatively new, exciting, and alternative approach to health care. Traditional medical neurology treats neurological disease or pathology with the use of drugs and surgery. While this may work for some patients, others feel that it doesn’t fully address the root cause.
Functional neurology looks at dysfunction in the nervous system, even before this is a medical diagnosis, and aims to treat a broader array of brain dysfunction through receptor or brain-based rehabilitative therapy.
Functional neurology utilizes a comprehensive neurological exam, assessing the sensory systems (balance, vision, touch, hearing) that supply input to the brain, as well as motor responses that relay output from the brain. This gives the doctor information on which parts of the brain are not working so well and helps the doctor create a treatment plan specific to each patient. Treatment typically consists of brain-based or receptor-based rehabilitative exercises, chiropractic adjustments, mechanical traction, and nutritional counseling.
Functional neurology could be used to treat:
- Balance disorders
- Childhood developmental disorders (ADHD, ADD, autism spectrum)
- Brain injury (post-concussive, TBI, post-stroke)
- Movement disorders
- Chronic pain
- Memory loss
- Mood disorders (anxiety, depression, OCD)
Nutritional Analysis & Counseling
For many people, food and diet are very problematic. Instead of being a source of nourishment, food has become an area of conflict and confusion – endless weight loss dramas, eating disorders, cravings, addictions, body image obsessions, and never-ending searches for “the best” nutritional system.
Dr. Denning carefully evaluates aspects of our patients’ lifestyles and current diet in order to put together a comprehensive nutritional plan that is individualized to each person. No two people are alike; therefore no set of dietary recommendations will be the same. Dr. Denning uses science-based research to detail a nutrition program that includes anti-inflammatory components to assist in the reduction of your pain.
During pregnancy, body changes occur rapidly to accommodate your baby’s growth. Chiropractic care can help your body readily adapt to these changes by ensuring your body is well connected through a fully functioning, unobstructed nervous system. Additionally, a properly aligned spine and pelvis can help to reduce pain and discomfort during all stages of pregnancy.
Postpartum, mothers are understandably focused on the health and comfort of their newborn child. It is important to remember the importance of the health and recovery of the mother during this period, as a healthy mother is able to more effectively meet the needs of her child. As the ligaments and tissue that loosened during pregnancy begin to slowly heal and tighten, postpartum women are likely to experience discomfort and pain related to instability of those areas. Couple this with the repetitive actions of breastfeeding, carrying your new baby, hauling diaper bags and car seats, etc.., and it is no surprise why most new mothers experience neck and back pain while adapting to life’s new tasks.
We take pride in playing an important role in your pregnancy health care!
