Asheville chiropractor honored with faculty position

From the press release:

Network Spinal Analysis, or Network Care as it is commonly known, has garnered national attention with the posting of Dr. Brian T. Lumb, D.C. to the teaching staff at Sherman College of Chiropractic in Spartanburg, SC. The program was created due to high demand from students and reflects the growing popularity of Network Care as a light touch alternative to traditional chiropractic methodologies.

Network Spinal Analysis is an evidence-based approach to wellness and body awareness, which cues the brain to create new reorganizational and wellness-promoting strategies. Network Care incorporates low force contacts applied at specific points to the spine, which helps retrain the way patients respond to daily stress without storing tension in the body. It is also an effective approach for those who live with chronic pain.

Network Care is being studied at several major universities and has been the subject of the largest study to date assessing the health and wellness benefits of a specific form of chiropractic care. Seventy-six percent (76%) of the patients studied reported imporved combined wellness changes in all categories assessed.

“We are pleased to offer the Network Spinal Analysis Care elective as it satisfies a current student demand and gives the college more flexibility and variety in its elective schedule,” says Sherman President Jon Schwartzbauer, D.C. “This is one way Sherman is meeting students’ needs for a comprehensive chiropractic education relevant to health care today.”

Regarding the new course offering at the college, Dr. Donald Epstein, founder and developer of Network Spinal Analysis stated, “I am thrilled about the new NSA elective at Sherman College. This offering advances the many wonderful contributions of NSA Care to the academic and chiropractic community, which include numerous international conference presentations and published papers demonstrating NSA Care’s unique spinal reorganizational properties, enhanced nervous system coherence, and wellness benefits.” Students completing the Sherman course will receive a certificate of completion for NSA Basic Care training and will be eligible for NSA Intermediate and Advanced Care education.

Committed to securing faculty who are experts in their course content and fields study, Sherman College of Chiropractic has contracted with Dr. Brian T. Lumb, D.C., one of the leading instructors in Network Spinal Analysis. Dr. Lumb provides Network Care in Asheville at Nourish & Flourish in the River Arts District and has trained and mentored hundreds of Network Care practitioners in the United States, Europe, and Australia over the last ten years. “NSA is a complimentary addition to the Sherman curriculum. It sets a precedent that will encourage more chiropractic colleges to offer NSA as part of its program,” says Lumb.
