Subluxation causes abnormal brain pathology, without causing any known symptoms
Drs. Heidi Haavik and Bernadette Murphy clearly show that a cervical spinal adjustment (ON PATIENTS WITH NO PAIN) influences the cortical brain and can create neuroplastic changes in the brain tissue.
Journal of Neurophysiology 2007
There are counselors and emotional modification programs that cannot create neuroplastic changes in the brain over months and months of therapy like one single chiropractic adjustment can.
The adjustment they received had a direct influence on sensory input and resulted in attenuated brain cortical evoked responses. This means it changed their brain for the better!
It was noted that “enhanced active inhibition” of the sympathetic nervous system tone occurred in ALL post-adjustment measurements!
The other cool thing it proved was that it clearly wasn’t a placebo effect or just “laying on of hands”. One group was set up for an adjustment but the high velocity low amplitude thrust was not made and this group had NO cortical neuroplastic change.
The bottom line here is that the vertebral subluxation leads to a bombardment to the Central Nervous System with afferent signals from joints and surrounding muscles. A chiropractic adjustment reduces excessive signals and improves altered input into the CNS, resulting in better adaptation to any internal or external input the brain perceives. Know this…. How to improve brain adaptability is one of the most important areas of study today in all of healthcare. And NOBODY EFFECTS IT LIKE YOU DO WITH THE POWER OF A CHIROPRACTIC ADJUSTMENT!
Also noted was that chiropractic adjustments inhibited the CNS facilitation while producing brain changes and did it with patients that had confirmed subluxation but NO PAIN!
