Are you trying to learn something new- like a new sport or musical instrument? Are you or your child struggling with reading or writing? Do you find that you are clumsy and trip on your own feet?
The hallmark of the chiropractic subluxation (spinal dysfunction) is the confusion it creates within the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord), and how it causes the body to misinterpret itself and its status in the environment. Interestingly, note how we did not say ‘the hallmark of spinal dysfunction is pain’. Your spine, or your child’s spine, may be causing this confusion in your brain WITHOUT the spine actually being in pain!
Confusion in the central nervous system could present itself as learning difficulties, clumsiness, spraining your spine and ankles easily, poor balance, poor body awareness, poor stress management. Spinal dysfunction (or chiropractic subluxation) affects each person in different ways at different ages and stages of development, and to different degrees. This is why it is important to get checked regularly, to help promote good health and brain-body communication.
Your cerebellum is one important part of your brain that is not only for good balance and accurate and coordinated movements, but also the ability to pay attention to the task at hand, language skills, and learning new movements and skills.
Research studies show that Chiropractic spinal adjustments change the way your cerebellum and pre-frontal cortex functions. Watch this short video below for a bit more information.
Do you find you’re a bit clumsy? Do you stub your toe often, or knock your elbows on door frames?
Maybe you need to have a check up with your family chiropractor!
