Andy Cruz, DC ,DACNB Chiropractic Physician, Functional Neurologist.
I am a Board-Certified Functional Neurologist as well as a doctor of Chiropractic. As of 2014, there are only about 10 doctors in the state of Oregon to have earned this level of certification. I have continued to update my skills to better serve others since graduating from Western States Chiropractic College in 1999. My mission in working with any patient is to enrich their lives by enhancing their body’s function and health through an integrated, holistic approach to healing.
My analysis draws heavily from the physical evaluation of the patient’s body. My understanding of any condition (or complaint) begins with gathering information from you about your experiences. The human body systems are constantly affecting the neurological system and being effected by the neurological system. I use a functional and holistic approach to target interventions specific to the areas of dysfunction. In other words, I make sense of patterns in the body’s nerves, muscles, reflexes to understand how your body functions. My evaluations involve not only an observation of the spine and its muscles, but also the brain. In many cases, I also look at other systems via blood test and imaging.
My analysis is science-based and holistic involving: physical/mechanical evaluation, functional blood-work analysis, nutrition and dietary management.
Patients involved in acute-trauma injuries, repetitive stress injuries, as well as chronic disorders have sought my care. Many times I hear patients tell me, “No one has ever been this thorough before”.
I am a passionate life-long learner who never tires of learning about the human body. I take great pleasure in assisting others. Your trust and confidence is well placed with me. I invite you to invest in yourself, and make a healthy choice, by exploring better health with us at Holistic Health Clinic. I look forward to helping you, and each of my patients, achieve a better state of wellness.
