SPINAL MANIPULATION AND 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 Montreal. Pain changes its function to safeguard the body. In chronic low back pain, pain the Dr. Hoang's Chiropractic Clinic sees every day, the brain’s dorsolateral prefrontal cortex shrinks in addition to 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 proposes that treating chronic pain can reestablish normal brain function. (1) Spinal manipulation helps chronic low back pain sufferers with their expectation of pain and fear of movement. Using MRI to look at the brain function in such patients, researchers verified that spinal manipulation affects pain, expected pain, fear of exercise and movement as well as other related brain responses.

(3) Naturally, research in this area of spinal manipulation effects on the brain and its function is evolving. It suggests that the changes occur in brain function with a call for more analysis of these changes.
