Apple Country Chiropractic [shares research on the benefits of spinal manipulation for brain function.  

SPINAL MANIPULATION BENEFITS BRAIN FUNCTION

The brain is a marvelous organ. It is like the computer for the body processing input and sending output every second of life for each of Williamson human. Pain affects its function to protect the body. In chronic low back pain, pain the Apple Country Chiropractic sees daily, the brain’s dorsolateral prefrontal cortex diminishes along with brain gray matter reduction and cognitive ability impairment. Treating chronic pain is found to help the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex thicken after treatment. Research like this proposes that treating chronic pain can restore normal brain function. (1) Spinal manipulation benefits chronic low back pain sufferers with their anticipation of pain and fear of movement. Using MRI to look at the brain function in such patients, researchers documented that spinal manipulation has an effect on pain, expected pain, fear of exercise and movement as well as other related brain responses. (2) Further, chiropractic spinal adjustments were found to possibly alter central processing of pain and unpleasantness. (3) Naturally, research in this area of spinal manipulation effects on the brain and its function is evolving. It proposes that the changes occur in brain function with a call for more examination of these changes. (4) The potential for spinal manipulation to affect such issues is very exciting to your Williamson chiropractor at Apple Country Chiropractic and our Williamson chiropractic patients like you!
