A recent study in January 2017 evaluated the effects of a chiropractic adjustment on the Nervous System using Positron Emission Tomography (PET) scan technology on 21 subjects. What they found was shocking!
The researchers concluded that Chiropractic adjustments reduce stress by changing the brain. Regular chiropractic care can amplify the body’s natural defense against chronic stress and disease. This research shows that chiropractic can affect hormones, emotions, cognition, and memory.
How much of a role does stress play in your life? Research in 2008 showed that up to 90% of all primary care doctor visits were due to chronic stress-related complaints. For many of these cases stress is treated with pharmaceutical drugs which only provide a temporary solution with the risk of side-effects or addiction. However, recent research and healthcare literature shows that stress be managed using non-drug based alternatives such as chiropractic care, acupuncture, massage, nutrition, and regular physical activity. Chronic stress attacks the body’s central nervous system, cardiovascular system, endocrine system, respiratory system, digestive system, muscular system and immune system and can wreak havoc on your overall health.
