How We're Keeping You Safe

Introducing Telemedicine and Virtual Nutrition


GyroStim Therapy

GyroStim is the lastest in brain injury recovery technology. It's a multi-axis chair designed to stimulate neurons and create new pathways.

Neurofeedback Therapy

Retrain and reprogram your brain to adopt new neural pathways in order to recover from brain trauma.

Cold Laser Therapy

A totally painless laser using a spectrum of light which penetrates soft tissue and encourages angiogenesis (which promotes healing).

Manual Adjustment

Sometimes a neurological problem is caused by a misalignment of the spine, which can be corrected through chiropractic adjustment.

Functional Medicine

Functional medicine operates on the principle of balancing the body to promote natural healing and prevention of disease without drugs.

Neuropathy Therapy

We can halt, and even reverse, neuropathy. You don't have to live with numbness, tingling, hot or cold sensations that aren't really there.

Is There Even "Hope" For You?

If you're like the majority of our patients, you have already been through some kind of treatment. You didn't have a good outcome, though. Your doctor (or doctors) told you, "there's nothing else that can be done". We find that prognosis is rarely true.

Take our quiz below to find out if you may be a candidate for highly-effective, non-conventional treatments.

Functional Medicine and Nutrition

Neurological conditions can affect mobility, memory, focus, balance, coordination, reading skills, and emotional stability. Neurological conditions can sometimes be difficult to isolate, identify, and treat. Fortunately, neurologists can use functional medicine to diagnose and treat many neurological conditions.

Functional medicine is a biology-based, patient-centered approach to identifying and treating the underlying causes of illness. Functional medicine is especially beneficial for neurological conditions affecting the nervous system, which includes the brain, spinal cord, and nerves. This approach to medicine works well when used with physiotherapy, chiropractic care, and nutrition to treat neurological problems.

Assessment & Treatment

Even if two people have the same diagnosis, every patient’s brain functions differently, and their challenges are unique. That’s why at Hope Brain Center, we treat people, not diagnoses. We create customized treatment plans for each patient based on their individual brain function, challenges and goals. By utilizing innovative technology combined with a personalized treatment plan, we can achieve maximal outcomes by creating programs that are tailored to the patient’s

Our rehabilitation process depends on the perfect mix of three factors:

1) The type of intervention (the therapy/treatment/exercise)

2) The order of intervention

3) The amount of each intervention

With thousands of exercises and therapy variations (many exclusive to our process) and many different sequences, there are literally millions of combinations of therapies we can offer as part of an individual’s treatment plan, especially within our program. Many of our patients express that they are perplexed by the dramatically different outcomes generated by performing seemingly similar therapies compared to their previous therapies. These expressions provide us with verification that the way in which interventions are delivered is critical to the ultimate outcome.


The GyroStim is a computer-controlled, multi-axis rotating chair integrated with an interactive laser targeting system.

Its technology and methodology are combined to create an advanced training system available for therapy, rehabilitation, and athletic performance enhancement strategies. It’s technology and brain training applications can improve balance and brain performance of your current brain health, whether you are someone who has sustained a brain injury, are high functioning, or are somewhere in between.

At lower levels of intensity, clinicians use the GyroSim for applying gentle yet powerful multi-axis visual-vestibular stimulation and sensorimotor exercises. For people seeking to recover from a concussion, traumatic brain injury, or other neurological condition, the GyroStim can provide vestibular therapy to address persistent symptoms and restore lost function.

Marissa's Journey

After consulting with neurologists, they were unable to find the pathology, why she couldn’t stand, walk or feel her legs.

She chose not to give up and started the treatment with Dr. Joe.

She finally started to stand up at her 6th treatment.

If you or your loved one who had a concussion and have no answers to get better,

Common Myths

Myth #1) “You have to live with it”

Truth: Many of our patients have learned that there is a limit to the benefits of receiving care through traditional medical system. Despite continuing to get nowhere or even regressing to a worsened state, over time this may lead the patient to a depressed state resulting in the loss of hope, this is why we have researched rehabilitation through noninvasive technological and nutritional methods that may recover lost or damaged nerves and or brain function. This process of restoring neuroplasticity can bring back a great portion or potentially all lost or damaged neurological functions.

Myth #2) “Medication and surgery are the only viable treatments.”

Truth: Although medication and surgery can be lifesaving, lifestyle improvements can be very powerful in regards to preventing disease. Our state-of-the-art non-surgical treatments can help your function reach as near as normal as possible or even better than before.

Myth #3) "The older you are the less benefits you will receive from treatment."

Truth: Although age groups above 60 can have slower response to the treatment, it is when the body & brain are most susceptible to losing function. Diseases like movement disorders, mild Cognitive Delay (Dementia), Peripheral Neuropathy, Arthritis, Stenosis, and Visual/ Auditory Impermeant are more prevalent as you age. It is important to slow the progression or even remedy the problem completely.

Emma C.

Dr. Schneider is the most caring and Knowledgeable Chiropractor I’ve experienced.

I have Sciatica pain in my right leg over 2 years (and 3 different Chiropractors later.) Finally, I have some relief. I am also getting laser treatment. I had the first treatment yesterday, and I slept till 700 am this morning (9 hrs straight) and I feel refreshed. It has been years that I had this long sleep without any interruption.

Thank you, Dr. Schneider!

Amy J.

I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and could barely walk or open a bottle of water. Within 1 month after my test results came back I was able to walk normally and run if I wanted to. If you suffer with any autoimmune diseases this is the best place for you. They really gave me my life back! Thanks again!

Frequently Asked Questions

How long will treatment take?

Each case is different, that is why we have comprehensive diagnostic testing consultations and

exams. This process takes approximately three hours and gives us the proper information to set

up a treatment plan that is right for you and will give us a better idea of the possible success of

our programs.

Are the results permanent?

All the improvement is permanent as long as you do your home program along with proper

nutrition. When you receive care from our Hope Center you will be trained and you will see your

performance improve. These plastic changes in the nervous system give you a higher level of

function, once this strengthening occurs, you maintain growth by being active in your life again.

Why do I choose Hope Brain & Body Recovery Center?

After major stroke in 2017 I was fortunate to save my life. Jefferson Hospital did a great job in

helping me in my most critical moments. When I left the hospital, I received the most advanced

state-of-the-art treatment to return my brain to a working order through my colleagues,

functional neurologists. The reason I founded the Hope Brain & Body Recovery Center is I

wanted to help patients suffering from loss of brain functions to regain their life again.
