SPINAL MANIPULATION BENEFITS BRAIN FUNCTION
The brain is a marvelous organ. It is
like a computer for the body taking
information in and sending information out every second of life
for each of Pensacola human. Pain alters
its function to safeguard the body. In chronic low back pain, pain
the Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center cares for daily, 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 proposes
that treating chronic pain can reestablish 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 adjust 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 an appeal for more examination of said
changes. (4) The potential for spinal manipulation to affect
such issues is quite exciting to your Pensacola chiropractor
at Pensacola Spinal Rehab Center and our Pensacola chiropractic patients like you!
