hodges-antonucci-haavikDr Matthew Antonucci MNeuroSci, DC is a 2009 graduate of Life University.

Dr Antonucci is the founder and former CEO of NeuroLogic Integrated Health Inc, a functional neurology, nutrition and rehabilitation centre located in Charleston, South Carolina. He will be presenting a 1-day pre-Congress Introduction to Functional Neurology, and a lecture and workshop on the subject of applying neuroscience to clinical practice in the main Congress program.

With nearly 400 publications to his name, Professor Hodges is one of the world’s leading researchers in the field of neuroplasticity. With Doctorates in Medicine and Science, he is the editor of the acclaimed text Spinal Control: The Rehabilitation of Back Pain and the author of numerous book chapters.

She is also on the Editorial Board of the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics and is the author of The Reality Check, a book dedicated to exploring the effects of chiropractic adjustments on the brain and nervous system.

President of the World Federation, Dr Greg Stewart, commented on the presence of a session dedicated to neurological dimensions in chiropractic: “Much of the work being presented at our Athens Congress is truly at the cutting edge of research into the effects of chiropractic care. There has been an increasing focus on neurology as it relates to why chiropractic treatment works and the quality of the speakers during this session is second to none.”

CHINA-GEL Helps Sponsor PTSD Treatment for Veterans
Press Release
Written by TAC Staff   
Wednesday, 19 November 2014 03:30
Lombard - National University of Health Sciences has provided over 3600 free or low-cost treatment sessions to combat veterans suffering from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) since November 2010. That’s when NUHS opened a program specializing in acupuncture for PTSD in its on-campus clinic in suburban Lombard. 

soldierandflagNUHS has a new sponsor in delivering care to local veterans with PTSD, in CHINA-GEL, Inc. Headquartered in Arlington Heights, Illinois. China-Gel manufactures an herbal topical pain reliever. Because of their generous donation, NUHS will be able to offset the cost of the free acupuncture treatments, allowing the university to increase the number of veterans it serves. 
 
The clinicians and interns at NUHS use an effective acupuncture protocol that is proven to work in reducing symptoms of PTSD, including anxiety, insomnia, flashbacks, grief and other debilitating symptoms. In addition to free acupuncture for veterans with PTSD, the NUHS Whole Health Center offers a wide variety of other affordable health services for veterans and their families.

Veterans will also receive complimentary China-Gel pain relief products during their appointments. Since combat veterans often suffer from chronic pain due to previous injuries, the products will provide an additional drug-free means of reducing pain symptoms.  The company has also donated a supply of pain relief products to NUHS for clinical use with all of its patients.

“China-Gel is delighted to partner with National and have the opportunity to help those who sacrificed so much to serve our country,” stated Suzanne Girardin, President of China-Gel, “They put their lives on the line for us, and if it were not for them, we know we would not have the freedom to live life as we know it. National is offering another dimension of treatment to help the veterans. If our partnership in this program can help any veteran face the challenges of life after being deployed, we will have met our goal. It truly is a blessing for us to be a part of this program. 

“We are grateful that China-Gel is supporting us in our mission to give back to the men and women who have served our country,” says NUHS President Joseph Stiefel. “PTSD is a growing problem among those returning from the battlefield, often after multiple or extended tours of duty.”

The NUHS clinic has treated veterans from World War II, the Korean War, the Vietnam War, the Gulf War, and more recent conflicts in Iraq and Afghanistan. The clinic hallway boasts a display board featuring photos and branch of service mementos from grateful veterans who have been helped by the PTSD treatment they received at NUHS.

If you would like to learn more, or if you or a loved one is a veteran who might benefit from acupuncture for PTSD or other veterans services at the NUHS Whole Health Center - Lombard, call 1-630-629-9664.
