About The Practice
J. Douglas Brown, DC, DACNB, is the owner of the Mind Performance Center, the first deep transcranial magnetic stimulation (DTMS) facility in the state of Alabama. Using various therapeutic exercises to correct brain pathway imbalances and functional medicine, Dr. Brown is thrilled to help patients in Foley, Alabama, restore their quality of life; for themselves, their caregivers, and their families.
After graduating from Birmingham-Southern College in 1990, Dr. Brown decided to pursue the chiropractic path to health care service. He earned his Doctor of Chiropractic from the Life University School of Chiropractic in Marietta, Georgia. Dr. Brown believes that no single educational pathway holds all of the answers and that chiropractic exposed him to effective forms of alternative medicine that have inspired him to become a perpetual researcher of the human body and measurably effective non-invasive treatments.
Dr. Brown practiced chiropractic for nearly ten years before attending the Carrick Institute for Post Graduate Studies and completing a neurology fellowship in Cape Canaveral, Florida. He then went on to complete additional fellowship training in neurology at Baptist Medical Center/ Center for Neurological Disorders in Birmingham, Alabama. In 2018, Dr. Brown completed training in the Bredesen protocol for the reversal of Alzheimer's disease through The Institute for Functional Medicine.
At Mind Performance Center, Dr. Brown specializes in deep transcranial magnetic stimulation, brain metabolic enhancement, and brain performance. He utilizes various therapeutic exercises to correct brain pathway imbalances, and by correcting pathways, patients get stronger, longer-lasting results. He also treats Attention Deficit with Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and learning disability for children and adults.
For over five years, Dr. Brown has researched DTMS and its potential for dramatic improvement in the quality of human life. In 2008, the FDA approved DTMS as an optional treatment for “treatment-resistant depression,” and Dr. Brown brought the Brainsway DTMS technology into his practice in December 2014. By combining DTMS with corrective and restorative brain pathway treatments, Dr. Brown has had the blessing of helping several patients return from treatment-resistant depression to leading active normal lives.
Dr. Brown is board-certified in neurology and a Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board. He is proud to serve patients in his community and lives for those awakening moments when the patient becomes fully alive and empowered with mental clarity from renewed brain functionality.
Dr. Brown proudly serves residents of Foley, Fairhope, Daphne, Mobile, and Pensacola.
