Unlocking the Power of Chiropractic Care: Positive Effects on the Brain

When you hear about Chiropractic care, like most people, you probably only think about back and neck pain. While Dr. Michael Lea is amongst the best non-surgical treatment options for those common conditions, the research is clear…

Chiropractic Care Has More of An Impact on Just Your Back Pain

Recent studies have shed light on the positive effects that chiropractic care can have on the brain. In this blog post, we will explore the fascinating connection between chiropractic care and brain function, highlighting the cognitive benefits of this holistic type of health.

Enhancing Brain-Body Communication: The central nervous system, comprised of the brain and spinal cord, plays a vital role in controlling and coordinating bodily functions. In fact, the brainstem is the most vital area in your body because that’s where every nerve starts. The brainstem is located in the very uppermost part of the spine, called the upper cervical spine. Upper Cervical Chiropractors, like Dr. Michael Lea, are specifically trained to detect and correct misalignments in this area. A misalignment in the upper cervical spine causes a breakdown of communication between the brain and spine. This is often detected with diagnostic tests like X-rays and infrared thermography. When Dr. Lea makes a correction to the upper cervical spine, his goal is to restore proper alignment and thus optimize brain-body communication.

By eliminating interference in the nervous system, chiropractic care allows the brain to function more efficiently.

Research has demonstrated many cognitive benefits associated with chiropractic care. Studies have shown improvements in attention, concentration, and focus following a correction to the spine. Patients have reported enhanced mental clarity and reduced brain fog. Furthermore, chiropractic care has been linked to improvements in balance, coordination, and proprioception, which are all crucial for cognitive function.

Chiropractic care can positively impact neuroplasticity, the brain’s ability to adapt and change.

An upper cervical spinal correction performed by Dr. Lea facilitates proper neural connections by optimizing spinal alignment, promoting neuroplasticity. This can be particularly beneficial in conditions such as traumatic brain injuries, where rehabilitation and healing are essential for recovery.

Contrary to mainstream belief, chiropractic care is not just about spinal health; it can also have profound effects on brain function. By restoring proper alignment at the upper cervical spine nervous system communication becomes optimized. This very gentle, safe, and effective correction to the uppermost part of your neck offers cognitive benefits, including improved attention, mental clarity, and neuroplasticity.

As you will read from testimonials on Google, our website, and in our office, many of our patients enjoy improvements in their health that are more than just neck and back pain. Dr. Michael Lea is an industry leader in Upper Cervical Spinal Care, a highly specialized form of Chiropractic care.
