At Wellness For Life Chiropractic we are very interested in chiropractic neurology, because your brain is your hard drive for your body. Chiropractors affect the nervous system, which includes the brain. Without your brain your body couldn't move... you would be brain dead. Without your brain you couldn't breathe, eat, feel pain, stand up right, etc. Understanding how important your brain is to your over all health is why we are so fascinated with the brain and how chiropractic can keep your brain performing at optimal levels.
Chiropractic Neurology is the study of how chiropractic affects the brain and nervous system and how we can use that understanding to improve the function of the nervous system and the quality of life for mankind.
Through advances in brain research in recent years, we have come to understand two very important facts.
First that since all functions in the human body are in some way related to the brain, all symptoms and diseases that are not the direct result of an acute physical trauma are either the result of or resulting in functional brain imbalances.
Secondly we have learned about brain plasticity, that the brain tissue as cells and molecules, is constantly changing, which means that functional brain degeneration is reversible.
