After 30 years in practice, I’m still amazed by the testimony of my patients who tell me that after a fortunate chiropractic adjustment, they feel as if the fog has been lifted from their brain! They tell me they think more clearly, focus and concentrate more sharply, and have a feeling of peacefulness similar to meditation.
Well it’s an exciting time to be a chiropractor, as current research proves the effects of chiropractic adjustment and its ability to reboot your brain! It’s much like when you reset your computer by keying Control-Alt-Delete. Studies now show that spinal adjustments harmonize higher brain function, reduce nerve distortions, improve the connections between brain and body, and balance the four major brain wave patterns.
Here’s a sampling of current studies that measured changes that occur in the brain following chiropractic adjustment:
* Adjusting a malfunctioning spine changes brain function by almost 20%, most possibly in the prefrontal cortex, the “conductor” of the brain. 
* Cervical adjustment improves sensory-motor coordination, the ability of your brain and body to work together to improve your movements. 
* Chiropractic adjustment improves brain wave patterns and brain function, particularly the meditative Alpha waves associated with a greater degree of relaxation, health and healing. 
This is exciting stuff! No longer is Chiropractic only about neck and back pain, but a method to improve the functioning of the master control system, the brain and nervous system. Improved function of the “conductor” helps the body adapt to the stresses and strains of life with the result being greater health expression.
This is why it’s so important for anyone who is alive and has a spine to be checked periodically for vertebral subluxation, (spinal nerve stress) and be adjusted if necessary to restore and reboot the world’s most amazing computer network, The brain and spinal cord!
