SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BRAIN FUNCTION
The brain is a marvelous organ. It is
like a computer for the body processing input and sending output every second of life
for each of Fort Wayne human. Pain changes
its function to safeguard the body. In chronic low back pain, pain
the Aaron Chiropractic Clinic treats every day, 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 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 verified
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 modify 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 these
changes. (4) The potential for spinal manipulation to affect
such issues is quite exciting to your Fort Wayne chiropractor
at Aaron Chiropractic Clinic and our Fort Wayne chiropractic patients like you!

TIP OF THE MONTH: Take Care of Your Brain
Brain health, physical ability, and sleep quality are linked
to life enjoyment. Researchers relate that exercise influences the brain and its processes. Physical
activity of any sort is an economical and effective
way to promote brain health.
The question is which exercise is appropriate for
each person? Researchers want to understand how gender,
genetics and other factors affect brain function. (5) Sleep
quality, mental health, and physical activity are demonstrated to impact
a person’s perceived quality of life. (6) Sleep, exercise as you like,
and enjoy life to maintain your brain’s active state and health!
