Chiropractic care has been shown in research to impact brain function in the prefrontal cortex and promote responses in the parasympathetic and sympathetic parts of the autonomic nervous system.
OK great….but now in English please!
The reason the chiropractic adjustment works is due to its impact on the way your nervous system functions and regulates the body.
Because life and lifestyle habits can create stress, your nervous system can get “stuck” in a stress response or survival dominate state. This suppresses the body’s natural healing and repair mechanisms, its innate immune response, increases muscle tension, inflammation, sensitivity to pain, blood pressure, blood sugars and cholesterol.
When you receive your chiropractic adjustment it supports optimal balance within the nervous system and helps prevent the nervous system getting “stuck” in a survival dominate state.
We now live in an age where chronic illness is at crisis levels and that stress is now considered to be the primary cause in over 90% of all illnesses and health conditions.
Perhaps it is time to consider regular chiropractic care as a healthy lifestyle choice to optimise your quality of life.
