SPINAL MANIPULATION AND BRAIN FUNCTION

The brain is a amazing organ. It is like the computer for the body taking information in and sending information out every second of every day for each of us humans in Groton. Pain alters its function to protect the body. In chronic low back pain, pain the Hutter Chiropractic Office treats daily, the brain’s dorsolateral prefrontal cortex shrinks in addition to brain gray matter reduction and cognitive ability impairment. Treating chronic pain is found to help the dorsolateral prefrontal cortex thicken after treatment. Research like this proposes that treating chronic pain can reestablish normal brain function.

Using MRI to study the brain function in such patients, researchers verified that spinal manipulation affects pain, expected pain, fear of exercise and movement as well as other related brain responses.
