Joey Vance, DC, DACNB
Putting the pieces together: Dr. Vance has a passion for health and wellness that is personal. In his last year of chiropractic college he suffered a major concussion from a bicycle accident. This left him in a great deal of pain, with severe brain fog. He developed a tremor and experienced daily episodes of dizziness. He sought treatment by a chiropractic neurologist, and under their guidance performed specific neurological exercises along with some dietary changes that helped him regain function. Subsequently, he delved fully into the study of functional neurology. His goal as a healthcare provider is to restore your quality of life and improve neurological function. Dr. Vance is constantly studying to learn about the brain and its impact on health and how he can become a better clinician.
What is a DACNB?
Dr. Vance is a Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board. As of 2014, there are less than 20 DACNBs in the state of Oregon. Completing the diplomate requires an additional 350 hours of post-graduate study in neurology through the Carrick Institute and passing the licensing examination for the American Chiropractic Neurology Board. Diplomates use functional neurological approaches to examine and treat their patients without drugs or surgery.
