New research shows adjusting the spine changes brain function.
The research found that when areas of spinal dysfunction are adjusted changes in brain function are seen. These changes occurred predominately in the prefrontal cortex.
This area is responsible for decision making, memory and attention, intelligence, processing of pain and emotional response to it, autonomic function, motor control, eye movements and spatial awareness.
Chiropractors have long observed a wide variety of changes in those who get adjusted. People often say they feel better or focus better and notice improvements in movement and coordination. This study takes us a little further down the path of understanding why this could be.
