Chiropractic and Creative Thinking
Creative Thinking following Chiropractic Adjustment
Chiropractic Journal of Australia
This study asked 10 subjects to write down as many uses for an object as possible during a ten minute period (Alternative Uses Test)
Then each subject was examined by a Chiropractor to see if there was a subluxation. A subluxation is a complex of functional and/or structural and/or pathological articular changes that compromises neural integrity that may influence organ system function and health. They were then given an adjustment.
Between 2-8 days later, the subjects were given another version of the Alternative Uses Test again.
The results showed that 6 out of 10 subjects experienced a post-adjustment improvement in their performance
7 of the subjects showed new directions in real-world creative tasks.
6 of the subjects showed renewed energy towards a creative project already planned
Dr. Loiuse Hockley.,BSc, a Wellington-Based Chiropractor, stated that these preliminary results need further verification by future studies (due to small sample size)
