A driving factor in helping children ascend to higher levels of achievement and fulfillment is their health and well-being in Kingwood TX.

Study about Chiropractic Care

It has been well-documented that chiropractic can improve the health and function of many conditions, even those seemingly unrelated to the spine. This has taken place in chiropractic offices across the world for over 120 years. This research explores the benefits of a chiropractic adjustment on the brain and helps show why adults, children, and infants deserve to understand and experience chiropractic care in Kingwood TX.

  • This study sought to verify the findings following a spinal adjustment of dysfunctional segments in subclinical pain subjects on changes in somatosensory evoked potential peak amplitudes.
  • The entire spine and both sacroiliac joints were assessed for segmental dysfunction (also referred to as verbal subluxation) and treated where they were deemed necessary by a registered chiropractor with 15 years of clinical experience.
  • Clinical indicators that were used to assess the function of the spine were:
    • Assessing for tenderness to palpation of the relevant joints
    • Manually palpating for a restricted intersegmental range of motion
    • Assessing for palpable asymmetric intervertebral muscle tension
    • Assessing for any abnormal or blocked joint play and end-feel of the joints.
  • The chiropractic adjustments were high velocity, low amplitude thrusts to the spine or pelvic joints. The duration of the thrust is always less than 200 milliseconds.
  • The high-velocity type of adjustment was chosen specifically because previous research has shown that reflex electromyographic activation observed after adjustments only occurred after high-velocity, low-amplitude adjustments (as compared with lower-velocity mobilizations).
  • A sham chiropractic treatment group was also assessed.
  • The authors were able to show that the change in sensory-motor integration that occurs after the spinal adjustment predominately happens in the prefrontal cortex.
  • This suggests that the mechanisms by which a spinal adjustment improves performance are due to a change in the function of the prefrontal cortex.

The prefrontal cortex:

  • Plays a vital role in sensory-motor integration and is responsible for a number of other functions.
  • Is a key structure responsible for the performance of executive functions.
  • Is the major brain structure responsible for enabling and coordinating, planning a sequence of sub-tasks to accomplish a goal, focusing, attention on relevant information, inhibiting irrelevant distractors, being able to switch attention between tasks, monitoring memory, initiation of activity, and responding to stimuli.
  • A change in prefrontal activity following chiropractic may therefore explain the link of the varied improvements in neural function previously observed in the literature such as improve joint position sense, improved cortical reaction time and cortical processing, improved cortical sensorimotor integration, improved reflex excitability, improved motor control, and improved lower leg muscle strength.

Chiropractic Care in Kingwood TX

Chiropractic is not about treating or curing specific symptoms or conditions. Adjustments reduce interference from the brain and nervous system, so the body can function as it was designed. Less symptoms and the improvement of specific conditions often occur as a result of consistent chiropractic care. This ground-breaking research provides the necessary evidence that offers explanation for why children of all ages deserve to experience the benefits of chiropractic and why parents must know.

This article from The Chiropractic Advocate discussed the significance of the 2016 study published in the Journal of the Neural Plasticity called “Manipulation of Dysfunctional Spinal Joints Affects Sensorimotor Integration in the Prefrontal Cortex: A Brain Source Localization Study”.
