SPINAL MANIPULATION BENEFITS BRAIN FUNCTION
The brain is a magnificent organ. It is
like the computer for the body taking
information in and sending information out every second of life
for each of us humans in Paramus. Pain changes
its function to protect the body. In chronic low back pain, pain
the Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center cares for 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 alters pain, expected
pain, fear of exercise and movement in additional to other
related brain responses. (2) Further, chiropractic spinal adjustments were
found to potentially 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 proposes that the changes occur in brain function
with a call for more examination of said
changes. (4) The potential for spinal manipulation to influence
such issues is very exciting to your Paramus chiropractor
at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center and our Paramus chiropractic patients like you!

to life enjoyment. Researchers state that exercise affects the brain and its processes. Physical
activity of any type is an economical and effective
way to boost brain health.
The question is which exercise is best 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 affect
a person’s sense of quality of life. (6) Sleep, exercise as you choose,
