SPINAL MANIPULATION BENEFITS BRAIN FUNCTION
The brain is a magnificent organ. It is
like a computer for the body processing input and sending output every second of every day
for each of Manchester human. Pain alters
its function to safeguard the body. In chronic low back pain, pain
the Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries treats 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 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 verified
that spinal manipulation has an effect on 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 suggests that the changes happen in brain function
with a call for more examination of said
changes. (4) The potential for spinal manipulation to affect
such issues is very exciting to your Manchester chiropractor
at Manchester Chiropractic & Sports Injuries and our Manchester chiropractic patients like you!
