SPINAL MANIPULATION BENEFITS BRAIN FUNCTION
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.
(1) Spinal manipulation helps 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 affects pain, expected
pain, fear of exercise and movement as well as other
related brain responses. (2) Further, chiropractic spinal adjustments were
found to potentially adjust 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 happen in brain function
with a call for more analysis of said
changes. (4) The potential for spinal manipulation to affect
such issues is quite exciting to your Colorado Springs chiropractor
at The Chiropractic TRUhealthDR and our Colorado Springs chiropractic patients like you!
