We look at how all of the body’s senses work and how your brain interprets them, in particular with regards to the prefrontal cortex and pain signals.
Remember that chiropractic care is already well known in the research literature to help people who suffer with neck pain, back pain and headaches.
This is most likely because chiropractic care helps your brain know more accurately what is going on in the spine and body and may help your brain to switch off feelings of pain when they are no longer needed.
Scientists have shown that chiropractic care changes the function in your prefrontal cortex.
This is also probably why chiropractic care helps people who are suffering with pain by changing the ‘pain music’ in the brain itself.
Chiropractic care has so much more to offer than just helping you with your chronic pain.
Chiropractic care is all about improving the communication between your brain and body so you can function at your optimal potential.
However if you are suffering from chronic pain do your best to stay positive, move often, eat well, sleep well and go and see your family chiropractor to have your brain’s conductor fine-tuned too!
