In a new study completed by Heidi Haavik, Kelly Holt, Bernadette Murphy and others have recently confirmed that “there is solid evidence that chiropractic adjustments changes brain function”. According to the study it’s the prefrontal cortex that is greatly affected when the spine gets adjusted where they saw, on average, a change in brain function of 20%!(1) The prefrontal cortex is located at the front of your brain highlighted in orange in the image below.
There is now solid proof that chiropractic changes and saves lives if used as a proactive measure to health. I don’t know about you, but between getting pain relief versus having a better functioning brain, I’d choose the better function brain. Wouldn’t you? So what are you waiting for, go get your spine checked, get adjusted by well-trained chiropractor, and you’ll be thanking yourself in the long run because you’ve been successful in maintaining your health through the years.
