What High Heels Really Do To Your Body

It’s no secret that wearing high heels day in and day out can put a toll on your body. This infographic outlines the often dramatic effects of high heel wearing, probably making the ladies cringe. From a spinal aspect, heels cause an increase in the low back curve (lordosis). This increases the amount of stress on vertebrae and discs and can amplify any pre existing conditions in that area. We can help our heel-wearing patients at Crevar Chiropractic with feet subluxations by adjusting the bones of the feet and re-aligning them. Creating movement in the feet allows for pain relief and […]

Movement Disorders: A Functional Perspective

In the article entitled ‘Movement Disorders: A Functional Perspective,’ my colleague, Dr. Matthew Antonucci, and I discuss the basics of movement disorders – a neurological condition that causes any type of non-purposeful movement, such as tremors or restless leg syndrome – and how our role as functional neurologists can help with these disorders. We use techniques that treat individuals as a whole. In other words, the symptoms and the condition are not treated, but rather the cause of the problem is treated at a neurological level. Please view the article below to find out more about movement disorders and how […]

Chronic Disease Linked to High Levels of Stress

In conjunction with my colleague, Dr. Matthew Antonucci, I had the opportunity to publish several articles for the Charleston edition of Health & Wellness Magazine that illuminate various aspects of functional neurology. One of these articles, shown below, discusses how the body responds to stress and the position that one’s autonomic nervous system takes as it categorizes stressful situations. Stress negatively affects all aspects of life and exacerbates most conditions based on your body’s inappropriate responses to it. Diseases such as diabetes, OCD, depression, obesity, and even cancer have been linked to stress. Functional neurology focuses on the “connectivity” of […]

Autism: Connecting the…Neurons

In the series of Health & Wellness Magazine articles I published with my colleague, Dr. Matt Antonucci, we took the opportunity to write specifically on Autism and functional neurology. With April being Autism Awareness Month, it only seems appropriate to address the ‘largest childhood epidemic in history’ and how functional neurology is the most effective therapy for a child with a functional disconnection. Functional neurology provides an extremely specialized type of health care that ASD patients can benefit from due to the functional-based approach to understanding and treating the conditions. To read more about Autism and the specific practices that we provide […]

What is Functional Neurology?

I recently had the opportunity to publish several articles with my colleague, Dr. Matt Antonucci, in the Charleston edition of Health & Wellness Magazine. One of these articles focused on defining Functional Neurology – a very specialized type of health care that can be used to assist myriad disorders and conditions, including ADD, Autism, migraines, multiple sclerosis and many more. Understanding functional neurology is essential in that once a patient identifies their symptoms and recognizes that the practice can help to determine the core source of these symptoms, we can help move towards a whole-health approach of treatment, without prescriptions […]

Repair & Clear Detox Cleanse - Charleston, SC

Repair & Clear Detox Cleanse – Charleston, SC

Over the past several decades, stressful lifestyles, chemical exposure, poor diets and infections have caused major health problems. Certain natural, drug free steps can be taken to reverse the harm that has been inflicted on our bodies. These include aiding two of the body’s key functions: digestion and detoxification. The digestive tract is the part of our body that allows absorption of what we eat to gain access to our internal environment. There are tight junctions in our intestinal walls that let small, digested food particles into the blood stream to be used as fuel. Internal and external stress can […]
