How Chiropractic Improves the Function of the Brain and Nervous System

Today I want to talk about something very important, your brain. Your brain is the master controller of all function, all health, and all healing in your entire body.

If your brain is not working, really nothing is working well.

Many people think chiropractic is about the back or the spine, neck pain or headaches, numbness and tingling, or sciatica. We do see a lot of people for those conditions, and we get amazing results – turning people’s health around, naturally and without medications or surgeries.

But chiropractic care so much more than that. What most people don’t know is the true value of chiropractic is how it affects the brain and the nervous system.

How Does Chiropractic Care Affect the Brain and Nervous System?

Behind me you’ll see a chart. This chart shows what’s happening every time we do a specific corrective chiropractic adjustment.

These adjustments are not random. They’re customized to each and every person based upon functional evaluation & specific motion films. That’s how our office is so much different. And that’s where our patients are getting a different level of results.

Every time we make make an adjustment we correct the spine and stimulate your brain. There’s about 40 or 50 different processes that occur through your brain and your nervous system in just one adjustment. To go through and explain all the processes would be very difficult. But what I want you to understand is how complex and amazing that is.

It may seem like a simple clicking or popping of your back or neck, but really what we’re doing is stimulating the nervous system, especially the pre-frontal cortex of the brain which affects cognitive function, all autonomic function of the major systems of your body, the pain gate systems which turns pain on off, and the functional genetic expression of the cells in your body.

That’s how powerful chiropractic really is and that’s why we’ve seen just about every condition you can think of improve here in the office. Our patients are:

  • reversing their health problems
  • reversing chronic disease
  • getting out of years and years of pain
  • getting off medications naturally

All of these benefits are possible because of how powerfully chiropractic affects the function of the brain and nervous system. Chiropractic adjustments create neuro-plastic long-term change when done correctly like we do here in our Rocklin chiropractic office through a very specific corrective care health protocol.

So remember, when you think of chiropractic, think of the brain and think of the nervous system.

Who Benefits From Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic treatment has nothing to do with symptoms. If you’re not having pain right now, if you don’t have an issue, you could still significantly benefit from chiropractic care.

Kids, babies, the elderly, everyone benefits from chiropractic care.
