The Ecological Hierarchy

Stop chasing pain. Yep. Dr Perry Nickelston’s [@stopchasingpain] tag line is more than just a suggestion. His background in chiropractic is just the beginning of his journey to help people rid their body of pain and toxins. Doc takes what he describes as an “ecological hierarchy” approach to the bod. He systematically addresses the function of often siloed operations, including the nervous system, emotional response, and lymphatic system. These are just to name a few. Find out how to view your current pain or dysfunction through a new lens.

When it comes to alleviating pain, sometimes going right to the source is not the answer. According to Dr Perry Nickelston [@StopChasingPain] the body is a whole system of interdependent functions. He pays close attention to both the CNS and the lymphatic system and addresses those as part of his pain diagnostic and treatment process. He’s a cutting edge chiropractor with a spidey sense for pain. He’s also this week’s guest on PA Radio.
