SPINAL MANIPULATION BENEFITS BRAIN FUNCTION
The brain is a marvelous organ. It is
like a computer for the body taking
information in and sending information out every second of every day
for each of San Jose human. Pain alters
its function to safeguard the body. In chronic low back pain, pain
the Chiropractic Solutions treats every day, the brain’s dorsolateral prefrontal cortex shrinks
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 suggests
that treating chronic pain can restore normal brain function.
(1) Spinal manipulation helps chronic low back pain sufferers
with their expectation of pain and fear of movement. Using
MRI to look at the brain function in such patients, researchers verified
that spinal manipulation alters pain, expected
pain, fear of exercise and movement as well as other
related brain responses. (2) Further, chiropractic spinal adjustments were
found to potentially 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 an appeal for more examination of these
changes. (4) The potential for spinal manipulation to influence
such issues is very exciting to your San Jose chiropractor
at Chiropractic Solutions and our San Jose chiropractic patients like you!
