People We Treat


Patient Centered Approach

Each patient that comes into our office has a unique story and reason why they are here. Regardless of what phase of life you are in or what diagnosis you have been given at Dearing Chiropractic, we look at the body as a whole to make the best decisions for care based on the person in front of us and what goals they desire to achieve. 

Children and Adults
We work with patients of all ages from toddlers to grandparents and everyone in between. No matter what age group, each person has come into our office seeking help and a confidence that we were going to be able to help give them their lives back. It doesn’t matter what injuries or challenges life has presented; we want to provide an opportunity for better health for everyone and every situation.
Business and Athletics
Every person has high stressed moments in life whether that’s during a job interview or pitching in the ninth inning of the championship game. Aside from the obvious cases of injury, these types of people groups also enter our office looking for an opportunity to get the jump on improving performance. The mind and body are connected which can be strengthened and improved for all situations. We look to improve both areas together to help our patients reach full potential in the office and on the field.
Aging Population
Degenerative neurological disorders can make life extremely difficult not only on the person it is happening too but also the families involved. These issues, like dementia and Parkinsons, put a lot of stress on everyone involved. We want to help you gain peace of mind that your loved one is able to continue having the quality of life that is suitable to their needs as an individual.

Acquired Brain Injury

Stroke/Hypoxia, Concussion, TBI
An acquired brain injury can be traumatic (concussion) or non-traumatic (stroke). People with these injuries often have very noticeable deficits after, or some may get progressively worse over time. Often the symptoms are regarding movement, cognition, or emotional systems. This type of injury may or may not have findings on MRI or CT scans – this does not mean they are not impacting the person’s life.

Anatomical Lesions

Tumors, Spinal Cord Injury, Malformations
These types of situations occur from genetics or surgical responses/consequences. The treatment is indicated by the location and severity of the lesion. Our goal is to make the area involved work better or give the opportunity for beneficial compensations.

Cognitive Challenges

Sensory Processing, ADHD, Dyslexia
Cognitive challenges like timing, coordination, speech, and sequences can be difficult. Most symptoms are often associated with children, but adults can be affected as well. Having a plan to combat these challenges can help decrease their effects on everyday life.

Genetic Disorder/Challenge

Downs, Charcot-Marie, Rhett Syndrome
These disorders can affect the myelination of the neurons and the connectivity of the entire nervous system. These challenges can have neurological consequences from a single gene change to a single chromosome change.

Degenerative Disorder

Alzeimers/Dementia, MS, Parkinsons
Degenerative neurological disorders usually have a progressive loss of structure or function. These have often been considered incurable, but with the correct therapy interventions brain function and reduction in symptomatology can be possible.

Movement Disorders

Balance, Dystonia, Tremor
Movement disorders show an abnormal increase or decrease in the voluntary or involuntary movement of the body. These are often from injury, degenerative condition, genetics, or chemical/toxin exposure.

Performance Desires

Sports, Cognitive, Health
The desire to do better and be better is one that drives a percentage of the population to keep pushing past their limits and reaching successes beyond what they’ve already achieved. This applies to the realm of brain health as well. Optimizing the brain’s potential and the efficiency of the neurological systems can help people reach their performance desires whether that is thinking faster in the boardroom or going for gold at the Olympics.

Autonomic Issues

Dysautonomia, Orthostatic Intolerance
The autonomic system controls many systems vital for life that you do not even know are happening (blood flow, sweating, digestion, etc). This system can become dysfunctional and cause neurological syndromes and disorders.

Epilepsy

Seizures
Epilepsy is used to categorize a vast range of brain disorders. The seizures during an eptiletic attack occur when the normal neuronal activity is disrupted. This leads to a variety of symptoms such as muscle spasms, loss of consciousness, and convulsions. These normal neuronal activities must be strengthened to decrease the frequency or intensity of recurring seizures.

Sensory Disturbances

Pain, Dizziness, Abnormal Sensations
Pain is a primary indication of the body telling you something is wrong, but it can happen in a variety of other ways as well (sensitivity to touch, loss of feeling, disorientation, dizziness).These issues can occur with and without disturbances to cognitive, thinking, motor, and movement systems.

Unknown

Something Else
People may not necessarily have a diagnosis but understand when their mind and body are “off”. The goal is a better quality of life and through a specific evaluation to understand what exactly is going on with the individual is key to providing the right prescription of care.
