Bio of James E. Browning, D.C.
Since having received his chiropractic degree in 1981, graduating with honors from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Dr. Browning has been involved in ongoing clinical research with respect to the mechanically induced Pelvic Pain and Organic Dysfunction syndrome. Having devoted nearly 30 years to these efforts, he has published the results of his work in several peer-reviewed journals. In addition, he has lectured on this topic and has delivered numerous presentations addressing various aspects of the recognition, diagnosis, treatment and clinical management of the mechanically induced PPOD syndrome at chiropractic colleges and spinal related research symposiums throughout the US and Canada.
He has contributed a chapter on the PPOD syndrome which appears in the text Somatovisceral Aspects of Chiropractic: An Evidence-Based Approach, published by Churchill Livingstone. In addition, he has authored a book for the general public titled Mechanically Induced Pelvic Pain and Organic Dysfunction: The PPOD Syndrome. A new solution to chronic pelvic pain and the disturbances of bladder, bowel, gynecologic and sexual function that accompany it, published by Outskirts Press Inc.
A board certified chiropractor, Dr. Browning is past president of the International Chiropractic Academy on the Study of Back Pain and a certified impairment examiner. He is a Diplomate of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners and has held professional affiliations with the American Chiropractic Association, ACA Council on Neurology, ACA Council on Orthopedics, International Academy of Chiropractic Industrial Consultants and Foundation for Chiropractic Education and Research. Through his contributions in this area, he has become recognized as the leading authority on the mechanically induced Pelvic Pain and Organic Dysfunction syndrome, and as a result, has the honor of having served patients who have traveled from all regions of the US and overseas, some traveling from as far away as Hong Kong.
As a result of this work, he has developed an effective non-surgical treatment approach for the mechanically induced Pelvic Pain and Organic Dysfunction syndrome patient that utilizes a type of spinal manipulation as the core therapeutic procedure. Dr. Browning has utilized this approach in helping many individuals regain control of their lives and recover from the devastating effects of the mechanically induced PPOD syndrome. While the effectiveness of this therapeutic approach can be seen by the response of the patients in the case reports presented elsewhere on this website, it has been further demonstrated by the results of a university pilot study which were sufficiently impressive to obtain funding through the National Institute of Health’s Office of Alternative Medicine and the National Institute of Arthritis, Musculoskeletal and Skin Diseases for a full scale randomized clinical trial.
As the procedures utilized in the care of the PPOD syndrome patient are inherently noninvasive, and the therapeutic protocols that have been developed are designed to minimize the potential of adverse effects, the vast majority of patients under Dr. Browning’s care have tolerated their treatment extremely well. And, in fact, in no instance has anyone under Dr. Browning’s care experienced any significant adverse side effect or complication. As a result, patients being treated at the Browning Pelvic Pain and Organic Dysfunction Treatment Center can be assured that they will be receiving cutting edge treatment by a knowledgeable, skilled and experienced clinician.
