There is absolutely no question that spine and the brain have a very intimate relationship. Proper movement of the spine is responsible for 90% of the stimulation and nutrition that goes to the brain. So you can imagine that an improperly aligned spine can have a detrimental effect on the processes of the brain. The benefit of Chiropractic is to restore an improperly aligned spine to a more ideal alignment in order for this relationship to be properly restored. The best way to achieve this is through Chiropractic adjustments. With this premise in mind, there is so much power that comes from one Chiropractic adjustment alone, but so much more when you get adjusted on a more regular basis.
Chiropractic research has shown us that there are a wide variety of benefits that come from Chiropractic adjustments. Here is a list of some the best known health benefits that Chiropractic adjustments can provide:
There are a lot of important process that works in your body without you even thinking about them. These processes are controlled by the autonomic (automatic) nervous system. A properly functioning ANS allows the proper release and communication through hormones, which a lot of our organs are reliant on to function. Chiropractic adjustments have a positive influence on the ANS through influencing hormone balance, especially decreasing lingering stress hormones in the body.
Studies show that Chiropractic adjustments have a direct effect on the immune system, often boosting the immune system by up to 139% from a single adjustment. It does this by promoting the release of immunoglobulins, which are responsible for an immune response against toxins in the body.
Continuing with the idea that adjustments directly affect the brain, adjustments are shown to improve direct communication between the body and the cerebellum, which is responsible for controlling balance, response/reaction time and the posture you carry against gravity.
Adjustments, most specifically in the spine, can improve joint motion and position, which is negatively impacted in a misaligned spine. Improving the joint motion and position in the spine not only improves communication with the brain but also positively impacts the direct health of the spine. This means increased hydration, nutrition and spacing for the spinal discs, which prevents the processes of osteoarthritis (degeneration) in the spine.
The function of the brain is dependent on the release and function of neurotransmitters. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to positively influence the release and communication of neurotransmitters with the brain, more recently researched in the prefrontal cortex of the brain. This positively affects how we think, feel and behave, thus not only showing improvements in physical health, but emotional and mental as well.
