Welcome to Tiferet Chiropractic Neurology,

Our goal is to provide the best possible neurologically based chiropractic care to every patient who qualifies for care and seeks our assistance.  


Dr. Herold is board certified by the American Chiropractic Neurology Board in the specialty of Chiropractic Neurology.  Board certification requires an intensive diplomate training program in clinical neuroscience and the successful completion of four days of written and practical examinations. Furthermore, maintaining certification requires a minimum of 30 hours each year in continuing education in the field of functional neurology.


What is functional neurology?  

Functional neurology is the clinical science of treating the brain and body through the way it was designed to function - sensory inputs.  Our brains job is to respond to the environment.  Stimuli such as touch, stretch, movement, light, sound or smell are what ultimately drive all brain functions.  Rather than affecting the brain through the tools of medical neurology: drugs and/or surgery, chiropractic neurology utilizes natural pathways to improve function and increase adaptability and cellular viability to decrease the effects of aging, injury or degenerative changes on future health.

Why choose Chiropractic?

The goal of holistic healthcare is not the treatment of specific conditions, but the analysis and improvement in function of the entire person as a whole using natural and safe interventions.  In addition to helping manage problems, functional neurology is particularly well positioned to help individuals optimize function for well-being and the prevention of injuries and/or future degenerative changes.

That being said, we never escape the question of 'what conditions can you help'?  The (right brain answer) is this:  If the nervous system is playing a role in the condition, then there is a good chance that functional neurology and chiropractic can be of benefit.  The beauty of functional neurology is that if we can improve the pathways involved, we should see immediate changes in the findings following a therapeutic intervention.  

More specifically (left brain answer), Dr. Herold enjoys aiding people struggling with migraine or other complex headaches, vertigo and dizziness, balance problems, acute or chronic pain, reflex sympathetic dystrophy/complex regional pain syndrome, whiplash/motor vehicle accidents, TMJ issues, repetitive injuries, arthritis, movement disorders, muscle spasms or weakness, tingling or numbness, brain or peripheral nerve conditions, behavior and mood disorders, anxiety & depression.    

To touch is to heal, to hurt is to steal.  If you want to touch the sky,  you'd better learn how to kneel.  -Bono
