I highly recommend Dr. Azzolino’s office. Dr. Azzolino definitely pours his heart and soul into his work, and is incredibly knowledgeable. I went to see him due to symptoms we suffered from chemical exposure, and we went to him after looking for answers for many months. When other doctors were not able to help us, he was reassuring and provided immediate treatment as well as exercises we could do at home, and this was the turning point for us in our recovery. I only wish we had gone to him sooner and that we lived closer to his office, as a 2+ hour drive is difficult to do regularly, especially with kids. But, he and his office staff have been awesome to work with – even remotely, quickly responding to emails and phone calls.

Dr. Azzolino and his other staff are very warm and caring and down-to-earth, at the same time Dr. Azzolino is efficiently and accurately doing sophisticated analyses and treatments with cutting edge techniques to do work that almost seem miraculous!

I found Dr. Azzolino on Yelp just a few weeks ago. Out of the blue, I was in a lot of pain and not able to move without back spasms. I’ve seen him about 2-3 times a week over the past few weeks for adjustments and treatments now. My condition has improved immensely since seeing him. I find Dr. Azzolino to be very professional and personable. His staff if friendly and helpful too.

I’ve had some mixed experiences in the past with various chiropractors so I will admit I was a bit leery coming in to see him the first time without any personal referrals. During my first visit to Dr. Azzolino I was very concerned about my condition as I consider myself to be too young to be in the pain I was in. He was very thorough with getting to know my needs and condition as well as took X-rays that he was able to go over with me in the same visit. His cost was surprisingly reasonable for the X-rays compared to other chiropractors I had seen before. He did a good job of explaining what was going on and also calming me down. I was actually impressed by his facilities and all the services he offers. Some other chiropractors I have seen in the past, seem to be limited in what treatments they have available at their facilities.

Dr. Azzolino seems to be extensively knowledgeable about the body, how it works, and how it affects the mind. I definitely prefer doctors that integrate other schools of thought besides what they are formally taught. I think it helps to cure/correct whatever your issue is if you have a doctor that looks at the whole picture especially when it comes to physical pain as there are many possible causes that may not even be physical. Dr. Azzolino keeps up to date on relevant research and information. I appreciate him sharing suggestions to further educate me on how to take better care of my body.

Unfortunately my insurance does not cover my visits, and even though most chiropractic care is pricey, Dr. Azzolino has proven to be worth the investment in my physical well being today, and hopefully long term as well. I definitely recommend his practice if you are searching for a chiropractor in the area . ūüôā

Traumatic Brain Injuries

Traumatic Brain Injuries (TBI) also known as Intracranial injuries are in the headlines almost every day.  TBI are generally the result of a sudden, violent blow or jolt to the head. The brain is launched into a collision course with the inside of the skull, resulting in possible bruising of the brain, tearing of nerve fibers and bleeding.   A whiplash type injury can result in a brain injury without even hitting the head.

Ranging in severity from mild, known as mild traumatic brain injuries (mTBI) to severe life threatening, each injury should be taken seriously.   Regardless of the severity, all brain injuries can result in compromise of the normal brain function.  Our team of physicians are at the forefront of TBI assessment and treatment.  We provide a comprehensive approach to maximize healing and restoring function.  Although, difficult to detect with conventional imaging such as MRI or CT, we utilize advanced diagnostic modalities to detect damaged areas and formulate a customized neurological rehabilitation program to restore your health.  We offer customized nutritional therapies and Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy (HBOT) to ensure optimal healing.

Symptoms of a brain injury include:

  • Unconsciousness
  • Inability to remember the cause of the injury or events that occurred Immediately before or up to 24 hours after
  • Confusion and disorientation
  • Difficulty remembering new information
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Blurry vision
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Ringing in the ears
  • Trouble speaking coherently
  • Changes in emotions or sleep patterns

The severity of symptoms depends on whether the injury is mild, moderate or severe.

  • Mild traumatic brain injury, also known as a concussion, either doesn’t knock you out or knocks you out for 30 minutes or less. Symptoms often appear at the time of the injury or soon after, but sometimes may not develop for days or weeks. Mild traumatic brain injury symptoms are usually temporary and clear up within hours, days or weeks, but they can last months or longer.
  • Moderate traumatic brain injury causes unconsciousness lasting more than 30 minutes. Symptoms of moderate traumatic brain injury are similar to those of mild traumatic brain injury but more serious and longer-lasting.
  • Severe traumatic brain injury knocks you out for more than 24 hours. Symptoms of severe traumatic brain injury are also similar to those of mild traumatic brain injury but more serious and longer-lasting.

Mild traumatic brain injuries

According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), USA:

  • About one third of injury related American deaths are linked to TBI
  • About 230,000 hospitalizations occur annually in the USA as a result of TBI
  • 1.1 million Americans are treated for TBI and released from an emergency department
  • Almost 2% of the US population lives with TBI-related disabilities
  • About 2 million American adults and children suffer from traumatic brain injury annually
  • 50,000 patients die annually in America as a result of TBI
  • Every 15 seconds one American man, woman or child sustains a significant traumatic brain injury
  • The total number of individuals with TBI who are not seen in an emergency department, or who do not receive any care is unknown
  • Direct medical costs and indirect costs, such as lost productivity of TBI totaled an estimated $60 billion in the USA in 2000
  • Among American children aged up to 14 years, TBI results in an estimated:
    • 2,685 deaths
    • 37,000 hospitalizations
    • 435,000 emergency department visits annually.

Scientists have not managed thus far to identify effective medications to improve outcomes for such patients, despite the extent of the problem.   People from around the world have consulted Azzolino Chiropractic Neurology & Integrative Wellness and have had great success by our customized approach of neurological rehabilitation, nutritional, and hyperbaric oxygen therapy.  Look no further, we have what it takes to help you heal.
