He attended chiropractic school thereafter and then attended Parker College and earned his doctorate. After graduating Parker, he became Director of Rehab at Physical Medicine and Rehab Associates. A short time after, he became a clinic director at Kirkham Healthcare where he worked with evaluating and overseeing the treatment of athletes of various sports. He then opened his own facility, Vitality Sports Medicine.
Dr. Ford provides chiropractic care for the Dallas Metroplex Striders Running Club, Baylor University Track & Field, The NFL New England Patriots, Atlanta Falcons, Arizona Cardinals, Cleveland Browns, Dallas Cowboys, Denver Broncos and Olympians.
Dr. Ford talks about what a concussion really is. It was known as a bruise to the brain, but it is much more than that. Concussions are all the rage right now because it is so prevalent in football. There are many points Dr. Ford covers in this podcast that are worth hearing.
He has come out with a patented brain supplement called CereGold. This supplement is taken over a course of two weeks. It encompasses a three step process that enables the body to promote healing.
Beeben Russell is with Russell Distribution. His focus is on holistic modalities using LED therapy. Brain Light Pro is a flexible pad containing LEDs. They are embedded below the surface of the pad to maximize comfort. It is designed to be applied to the head and neck for 20 minutes per day. LEDs of the wavelength used in the Brain Light Pro has been shown to increase blood flow to the brain.
What can it do for you? Clinical treatment results have shown that patients experience significant reduction in their symptoms such as headache, sleep disturbance, cognitive impairment, mood swings, irritability, impulsivity, anxiety and balance problems.
Dr. Ford and Mr. Russell both stress that CereGold and Brain Light Pro are not a cure, but could be helpful to an individual suffering from a concussion or a head injury.
There is a lot of information in this podcast that may be over your head. It is sometimes over mine, but worth knowing about. My purpose of doing a Part II of Bridging the Gap between Conventional and Holistic Medicine is to provide you with information that you may not be aware of.
