The Brain and Spine Connection

Bottom Line:

Every thought and movement in your life occurs through your brain and spinal cord, which is collectively known as the central nervous system. Your spinal column acts as the armor and pathway for your spinal cord to travel down and split into the nerves that reach every cell of your body. Every moment and millions of messages and bits of information are moving along your spinal cord this very moment to maintain the delicate balance between your brain and body.

Why it Matters:

Recent research has shown that the type of movement which happens during a Chiropractic adjustment can change the chemistry of your brain. Pretty far-out right? Chiropractic adjustments can alter the biochemical markers in your brain. These changes can result in everything from increased endorphin release (a feel-good hormone) to pain relief. Emerging research has even indicated increased strength (or cortical drive) following an adjustment!

  • Your brain and body are in constant communication through via your central and peripheral nervous systems.
  • The spinal cord can send information up to your brain at a rate of over 250 mph!
  • Chiropractic adjustments to the neck or back have been shown to influence brain function resulting in pain relief, endorphin release, and more.


Next Steps: 

For the past 100 years, scientists and doctors have learned a lot about the brain/body connection, but we still have a long way to go. Aging, healing, and your entire life experience happen through the communication and coordination of your brain and body. Keeping both healthy and active will help you continue to live your best life. Need help? Just ask!
