Cognitive Dysfunctions

Chiropractic care can improve your cognitive ability by at least 20%! A recent overseas study showed that chiropractic adjustment can improve neuroplasticity which is the key to how your brain functions. Chiropractic care is concerned with the balance of your systems, and neuroplasticity plays an important part.

When the spine gets out of alignment, it can inhibit crucial neural pathways. When those pathways are freed and your spine is in alignment, your cognitive function improves. Combining alignment with neural pathways ensures the functional neurology of the body.

Cognitive Dysfunction is a blanket term for forgetfulness, dementia, brain fog, and memory loss. The results of this study show great promise for helping improve the lives of people suffering from any type of Cognitive Dysfunction.

What do Cognitive Dysfunction Treatments Include?

Your chiropractor will want to talk to you at length at the beginning of your appointment. She will be trying to get a sense of how you are feeling. She will then do a physical exam followed by a spinal adjustment.

Following your appointment, you should find yourself with a clearer head. You might feel like some of the fog is lifting a bit. Continued treatment will keep your spine aligned and your memory sharper.

Cognitive Dysfunction Frequently Asked Questions

Neuroplasticity is how your brain adjusts itself through reorganizing neural pathways. It does this by forming new neural connections to compensate for any changes your brain may go through. These changes can be due to injury, illness, or age. The brain responds by adjusting itself to its new reality.

While we take into consideration the level of subluxation throughout your spine, when working on Cognitive Dysfunction issues, the focus is on the cervical spine. This is the area where most of your nerves are heading towards your brain and is the greatest possibility for Cognitive Dysfunction-related issues.

Yes, it is. It is a specialty called functional neurology. It requires extra schooling and continuing education. They have discovered many connections between musculoskeletal and neurological symptoms. For both systems to function correctly, both need to be in balance. Functional neurology focuses on these two systems and how they influence each other.
