          Chiropractic Neurologist
Hello, I'm Dr. George Kukurin and I am licensed to practice chiropractic and acupuncture by the  by the State of Arizona. I have been studying and practicing alternative medicine methods for over 20 years. I have a keen interest in conditions of the nervous system, because I am a former faculty member of the Post Graduate Neurology Department of Parker College. I’m also one of a select few Arizona chiropractic physicians who are Diplomats of the American Chiropractic Academy of Neurology.  I have treated thousands of patients suffering from all types of conditions of the nervous system. I have post-graduate education from the Harvard Medical School, Johns Hopkins and the Mayo Clinic. I have even traveled to Russian to learn laser acupuncture and to Mexico to study nerve regeneration treatments.

Help with  movement Disorders

There is a group of conditions collective known as movement disorders that include a wide range of  diseases. Some are as  mild as a barely noticeable tremor or shake in the hands or head. Others are devastating, with uncontrollable twitching and writhing. The classic disease that typifies a movement disorder is Parkinson's disease. PD is characterized by many different types of movement abnormalities. There is the cardinal “pill-rolling-tremor-at-rest” along with many abnormalities of gait and the  “mask-like” facial expression due to abnormalities in the control of the facial muscles.   Postural distortions are common due to the lack of appropriate motor control. Take a look at the photo on the next page, it shows the postural deviation seen in Parkinson’s Disease and also the postural correction results our methods can produce for our patients. While Parkinson’s Disease is the condition most people think of when discussing movement disorders, there are a wide range of other movement disorders that can be quite debilitating. The pictures at the bottom of this page illustrate the more common movement disorders. Below left is an example of blepharospasm. It is an involuntary contraction of the muscles surrounding one or both eyes. It can spread to involve half of the face. It is then known as hemi-facial spasm. The middle picture below illustrates a classic tremor. This can be due to essential tremors, familial tremors, Parkinson's Disease or even dysfunction in the cerebellum.   We discuss the neuroanatomy that contributes to various movement disorders later in article.  Below right is a women suffering from Cervical Dystonia. In cervical dystonia the head twists and turns un- controllably. This creates great psychological distress and embarrassment for the unfortunate patient stricken with this condition. The neck and head distortions can interfere with activities of daily living. They can become so pronounced that they damage the nerves exiting the neck producing neck pain and pain or numbness in the arms or hands. We have had great success in treating cervical dystonia. So much so that the results our patients obtain have been published in a journal indexed in the National Library of Medicine. You can download the article here.   The current best medical option for the treatment of movement disorders is to paralyze offending muscles with Botox ® (purified botulism toxin). This can produce some quick temporary relief  for select patients,  but does not address the underlying abnormalities in the nervous system. Learn about our approach
