Well before buttered coffee and MCT oil became a popular trend, Dr. Roger Sperry (a neuro biologist and Nobel award winner) had a staggering finding regarding human performance. He discovered that the movement of the spine generates 90% of stimulation and nutrition to the brain!
Why it matters:
Recent research uncovered even more ways that a Chiropractic adjustment stimulates your brain function. Studies have shown that our brain increases its rate of metabolizing glucose after an adjustment. You’re already smart by staying regular with your care, but now science is proving that your care might make you even smarter:)
– The gentle movement created during an adjustment has the potential to stimulate your brain and nervous system.
– Metabolic changes after an adjustment have been linked to decreased pain levels and reduced muscle tension.
– Research has postulated that adjustments decrease your fight or flight response which can lead to improved healing.
Use your brain! What would happen if more people in your life were getting more nutrition to their brain through healthy spinal movement? Make an appointment at our office for the people you live and work with. Healthier family + Healthier co-workers = Healthier you.
