The brain is a amazing organ. It is like a computer for the body processing input and sending output every second of life for each of Colorado Springs human. Pain alters its function to safeguard the body. In chronic low back pain, pain the The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR 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 reestablish normal brain function.

Using MRI to look at the brain function in such patients, researchers documented that spinal manipulation affects pain, expected pain, fear of exercise and movement as well as other related brain responses.
