About Gifford Neurology Institute

G. Kevin Gifford, DC, EDD. Chiropractic Neurology - Research - Development of New Therapy

Licensed as a chiropractor with the State of Arizona in 1992, Dr. Gifford has practiced chiropractic as a sole practitioner for 29 years. Post-doctoral studies and certification in chiropractic neurology from 1993 to 1995 expanded his understanding of the human condition and aided his efforts to help people. Education in a Doctorate in Educational Leadership at the University of Phoenix in 2008 introduced research philosophy and methods. Dr. Gifford's first body of research examined the effectiveness of chiropractic neurology in restoring or enhancing neurological function. He found that the cerebral cortex of the brain accepted change through introduction of neuroplasticity, but the cerebellum did not. This led to investigation of the anatomy and physiology of the cerebellum, and resulted in observations,research questions, and development of a hypothesis. Novel therapy was developed to test this hypothesis.

First Case Studies with Dr. Gifford’s Cerebellum Motor Coordination Rehabilitation Program (CMCRP)

  • 1. A 90-year old man with cerebellar ataxia (falling) had finished 18 months of exercise-based therapy, identical to that used by chiropractic neurologists and physical therapists, but still could not stand with his feet together for 3 seconds without falling. Two weeks of 30 minutes of CMCRP per day restored his postural stability to normal - no falling
  • 2. A 77-year old woman suffered from stage 2 dementia. She could not drive to the grocery store and return without getting lost. Thirty six CMCRP sessions over 3 months reversed her dementia to a perfect normal score. She is now almost 89 and can still drive without getting lost.

Subsequent Research includes more than 800 participants and has found significantly positive effects from CMCRP with the following:

Senior Adults Falling Dementia Emotion Intelligence Pain
Adults Falling Intelligence Emotion ADD/ADHD Pain
Children Emotion Intelligence ADD/ADHD Self-Regulation Pain
