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 us humans in St. Francisville. Pain alters
its function to protect the body. In chronic low back pain, pain
the Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville cares for 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 suggests
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 in additional to 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 advancing.
It proposes that the changes occur in brain function
with a call for more analysis of these
changes. (4) The potential for spinal manipulation to affect
such issues is very exciting to your St. Francisville chiropractor
at Family & Sports Chiropractic of St. Francisville and our St. Francisville chiropractic patients like you!
