Chiropractic and the “Brain-Body Connection”

It is fascinating to see the research that is out there on how powerful and helpful the Chiropractic adjustment is in allowing the brain to fully communicate to the rest of the body via the nervous system.  Research showing that the Chiropractic adjustment directly affects the afferent input into the brain throught the nervous system via the adjustment and then improving the efferent output from the brain to the body.  Thus improving every aspect of the health of the body from improving the nervous system communication between the brain and the rest of the body.  This coming from the Journal of Neural Plasticity “WE DO KNOW THAT SPINAL FUNCTION DOES AFFECT BRAIN FUNCTION. THERE’S NOW SOLID EVIDENCE THAT ADJUSTING THE SPINE CHANGES BRAIN FUNCTION. THIS IS THE FOURTH TIME THAT THE EFFECT OF ADJUSTING THE SPINE HAS ON THE BRAIN HAS BEEN STUDIED. THIS LAST TIME IT WAS STUDIED AND CONFIRMED BY AN INDEPENDENT MEDICAL RESEARCHER.”   Lelic, D, Niazi, IK, Holt, K, Jochumsen, M, Dremstrup, K, Yielder, P, Murphy, B, Drewes, A and Haavik, H (2016), “Manipulation of dysfunctional spinal joints affects sensorimotor integration in the pre-frontal cortex: A brain source localization study,” Neural Plasticity, Volume 2016.
