The majority of specialists in Neuromusculoskeletal Medicine use a non-traumatic form of manipulative treatment. Treatment is tailored to the specific needs of each patient based upon a comprehensive diagnosis.

The sources of an individual’s neural and musculoskeletal problems are determined using skillful neurological, osteopathic and orthopedic diagnosis, coupled with Dr. Van Buskirk’s knowledge of general medicine from years of practice as a board-certified family physician.

Diagnosing and treating patients with chronic and acute spinal restrictions and pain including the neck, upper and lower back and pelvic pain, rib and chest wall pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, bursitis, tendonitis, classical and non-classic migraine, medical epicondylitis (tennis elbow), mechanical gait disturbances, arthritis, scoliosis, nerve compression, fibromyalgia, soft tissue injury and numerous additional neural and muculoskeletal problems restores overall balance vital to healing the entire body.

Healing the body can also involve healing the emotions. Most emotions are generated and stored in the body, even if they are interpreted by the brain. Dr. Van Buskirk explains that balancing and releasing the neural and musculoskeletal systems helps restore  balance from trauma, persistent pain and long-term emotional distress. 


“Not everyone will get great results, but most will get good results,” Dr. Van Buskirk says. “It is very gratifying to see improvements immediately and demonstrably. Very few other forms of medicine or surgery can see dramatic results before the patient even walks out the door.”
