The chiropractic adjustment restores proper range of motion allowing proper static and/or dynamic alignment of facet joints, restores proper muscle and joint biomechanics and restores proper afferent neurological input by increasing/restoring proprioceptive (mechanoreceptive) input and decreasing nociceptive input, restores healthy joint biomechanics by breaking up connective tissue adhesions (scar tissue) and restores/creates healthy neurological pathways (segmental and global) by stimulating proprioceptors (mechanoreceptors). These processes require substantial repetition through the physiological stages of healing and neuroplasticity if long-term functional correction is to take place. Normalized (decreased) nociceptive input results in decreased sensitization and allodynia, normalization of sympathetic tone (decreased muscle spasm and vasoconstriction) and normalization of the stress response and therefore immune response (decrease in stress related adaptation and disease susceptibility - decreased allostatic load).

Many fields of study including neuroscience, neuropsychology, endocrinology, psychoneuroimmunology, and education have findings that support chiropractic as an important wellness and preventative intervention the neuroanatomical substrates providing the link between proper proprioceptive (mechanoreceptive) afferent input into the cerebellar - brainstem - cortical loops of life and healthy brain and body development and function have now been identified. This input has been termed an essential nutrient for proper brain and nervous system function and chiropractic is by far the best equipped profession to restore and/or improve it.

These Board Certified Internists are trained in and utilize the current medical diagnostic tools as well as specialized functional diagnostics. DABCI physicians routinely employ methods such as blood laboratory studies, urinalyses, electrocardiograms, vascular Doppler ultrasound, spirometry, DEXA bone density testing, salivary assay hormonal and neurotransmitter tests, IgG food allergy testing, diagnostic imaging to include x-ray, CT, MRI, comprehensive gastrointestinal stool analyses, and many other diagnostic tools. A DABCI uses therapeutic methods which emphasize conservative and minimally invasive approaches and minimize risk to the patient. Diplomates in diagnosis and internal disorders use treatments such as clinical nutrition, dietetics, exercise, vitamin and mineral supplementation, homeopathic medicine, botanical medicine, acupuncture, natural hormone replacement, and pharmacologic counseling. Many conditions and disease states can be resolved by utilizing these natural methods. The Council on Diagnosis of Internal Disorders promotes our physicians as uniquely qualified to provide this type of comprehensive natural medical care.

Radiology residency. 1986-1987

Becoming a DACBR involves 300 to 400 hours of training in the performance and interpretation of plain film radiography, with some additional training in advanced diagnostic imaging to better understand the reports provided by a medical radiologist. In all, a chiropractic radiologist will complete about 4,000 hours of training during their 3 to 4 year full-time residency. In addition to the undergraduate courses that all chiropractors take in pathology, bone x-ray, soft tissue x-ray, CT, MRI, and sonography, those who wish to pursue a DACBR must take additional graduate training in bone pathology, radiation health safety, genitourinary imaging, chest imaging, gastrointestinal imaging and MRI. Although a DACBR can read and interpret any sort of imaging, they specialize in imaging for the musculoskeletal system. The final reports are written in the same manner as that used by medical radiologists.
