Dr. Brett Renslow

Dr. Renslow started out his academic career early on, as the valedictorian of Silverado High School.  It was during this time that he developed an interest for the Spanish language and completed 4 years of Spanish classes.

Shortly thereafter, the doctor obtained his Associate’s degree in physical education as a fitness specialist.  At this time, he also became certified as a fitness trainer under the American Council On Exercise.  As Dr. Renslow worked towards obtaining his Bachelor’s degree in Human Biology,  in which he earned the status Magna Cum Laude, he trained Olympic Gold Medalist Allison Jolly.

The next step was completing the Doctorate degree of Chiropractic from the doctor’s alma mater, Cleveland Chiropractic College of Los Angeles.  A seed that was planted during his years of graduate school, by a profound acupuncture experience, grew to fruition when Dr. Renslow went on to earn his Fellowship degree in acupuncture from the International Academy of Medical Acupuncture.

After 3 years of working and gaining experience as a treating physician at a large multi-disciplinary clinic (consisting of orthopedics, neurology, chiropractic, acupuncture, physical therapy, and massage therapy) in California, Dr. Renslow moved to Weston to go into private practice.  His experience in California included working with a majority of Spanish-speaking patients, which equipped the doctor to communicate and treat the substantial South American population of Weston.

Finally, in August 2006, a life-long dream came true for Dr. Renslow. Natural Solutions Chiropractic was born!!!  By focusing on quality of care, patient education, prevention, and a holistic approach to health care, during his first year of practice in Weston, Dr. Renslow was voted best Chiropractor in the city by the readers of the Weston Gazette.

It is the doctor’s opinion that true health is not merely the absence of disease, but is the body functioning at its optimal level.  Natural Solutions uses the combination of chiropractic, acupuncture, herbs, rehabilitation, and exercise and nutritional counseling to not only treat injured and ill patients, but as a means of prevention.  The goal is to not only heal patients, but to change their perspective on health and life.

What is Chiropractic ?

Chiropractic is a health care profession that focuses on disorders of the musculoskeletal system and the nervous system, and the effects of these disorders on general health.  Chiropractic care is used most often to treat neuromusculoskeletal complaints, including but not limited to back pain, neck pain, pain in the joints of the arms or legs, and headaches.

Doctors of Chiropractic – often referred to as chiropractors or chiropractic physicians – practice a drug-free, hands-on approach to health care that includes patient examination, diagnosis and treatment. Chiropractors have broad diagnostic skills and are also trained to recommend therapeutic and rehabilitative exercises, as well as to provide nutritional, dietary and lifestyle counseling.


The most common therapeutic procedure performed by doctors of chiropractic is known as “spinal manipulation,” also called “chiropractic adjustment.”   The purpose of manipulation is to restore joint mobility by manually applying a controlled force into joints that have become hypomobile – or restricted in their movement – as a result of a tissue injury. Tissue injury can be caused by a single traumatic event, such as improper lifting of a heavy object, or through repetitive stresses, such as sitting in an awkward position with poor spinal posture for an extended period of time. In either case, injured tissues undergo physical and chemical changes that can cause inflammation, pain, and diminished function for the sufferer. Manipulation, or adjustment of the affected joint and tissues, restores mobility, thereby alleviating pain and muscle tightness, and allowing tissues to heal.

Chiropractic adjustment rarely causes discomfort. However, patients may sometimes experience mild soreness or aching following treatment (as with some forms of exercise) that usually resolves within 12 to 48 hours

In many cases, such as lower back pain, chiropractic care may be the primary method of treatment. When other medical conditions exist, chiropractic care may complement or support medical treatment by relieving the musculoskeletal aspects associated with the condition. 

Doctors of chiropractic may assess patients through clinical examination, laboratory testing, diagnostic imaging and other diagnostic interventions to determine when chiropractic treatment is appropriate or when it is not appropriate Chiropractors will readily refer patients to the appropriate health care provider when chiropractic care is not suitable for the patient’s condition, or the condition warrants co-management in conjunction with other members of the health care team.

History of Chiropractic

The roots of chiropractic care can be traced all the way back to the beginning of recorded time. Writings from China and Greece written in 2700 B.C. and 1500 B.C. mention spinal manipulation and the maneuvering of the lower extremities to ease low back pain. Hippocrates, the Greek physician, who lived from 460 to 357 B.C., also published texts detailing the importance of chiropractic care. In one of his writings he declares, "Get knowledge of the spine, for this is the requisite for many diseases".

In the United States, the practice of spinal manipulation began gaining momentum in the late nineteenth century. In 1895, Daniel David Palmer founded the Chiropractic profession in Davenport, Iowa. Palmer was well read in medical journals of his time and had great knowledge of the developments that were occurring throughout the world regarding anatomy and physiology. In 1897, Daniel David Palmer went on to begin the Palmer School of Chiropractic, which has continued to be one of the most prominent chiropractic colleges in the nation.
Throughout the twentieth century, doctors of chiropractic gained legal recognition in all fifty states. A continuing recognition and respect for the chiropractic profession in the United States has led to growing support for chiropractic care all over the world. The research that has emerged from " around the world" has yielded incredibly influential results, which have changed, shaped and molded perceptions of chiropractic care. The report, Chiropractic in New Zealand published in 1979 strongly supported the efficacy of chiropractic care and elicited medical cooperation in conjunction with chiropractic care. The 1993 Manga study published in Canada investigated the cost effectiveness of chiropractic care. The results of this study concluded that chiropractic care would save hundreds of millions of dollars annually with regard to work disability payments and direct health care costs.
Doctors of chiropractic have become pioneers in the field of non-invasive care promoting science-based approaches to a variety of ailments. A continuing dedication to chiropractic research could lead to even more discoveries in preventing and combating maladies in future years.
