Chiropractic Adjustment Found to Improve Brain Function 20%
A recent study conducted in Denmark and published in the Journal of Neural Plasticity shows that adjusting misaligned bones of the spine has a large effect on brain function.
Specifically, the study looked at how adjusting the spine changes the prefrontal cortex which is the conductor of the brain, the controller of conscious thought and where learning/cognition happens.
The study showed a 20% increase in prefrontal cortex activity following an adjustment of a mis-aligned vertebra.
This the 4th time that a study on chiropractic spinal adjustments has been shown to have a positive impact on brain function and the first time it was confirmed by an independent lab.
“One of the most interesting things about the changes we observed was that the prefrontal cortex is responsible for behavior, goal directed tasks, decision making, memory and attention, intelligence, processing of pain and emotional response to it, autonomic function, motor control, eye movements and spatial awareness.”
These results are exciting for all people who want to have a clear mind, healthy brain and want to function at their best. We take care of a lot of children in our office. Some begin care right at birth, others start after their parents begin noticing issues (whether with attention, sleep, coordination or more).
I can’t think of anything more important for learning than having a clean, balanced brain and nervous system.
Many athletes utilize chiropractic care to stay at their best and this study only reinforces the value of chiropractic care. People suffering with issues with sensory motor problems, dementia, balance, M.S., Parkinson’s and many other health concerns should consider chiropractic an option to help their brain function better.
Give yourself (especially children) a 20% advantage in life by helping the brain function better with chiropractic wellness care.
