A recent study finds that chiropractic adjustments have a positive effect on the central nervous system, specifically on the four primary frequencies of brain function. The study was conducted over three years and 100 volunteers were examined with an EEG before and after their adjustments.
The EEG scans were examined to check the right/left balance, the amount of total activity, the primary regions of activity and the effect of the adjustment. After receiving a chiropractic adjustment, post EEG scans revealed improvement in all areas of the volunteer’s brain function.
Your brain function is measured on four primary frequencies:
- Beta- represent the active, busy brain.
- Alpha- reflect the meditative, relaxing healing mode
- Theta- reflect light sleep, relaxation and conceptual development.
- Delta- represent the brain activity during deep sleep, repair mode and energy storage.
After receiving treatment the volunteers of the study each had EEG scans. The volunteers post EEG scans revealed improvement in all areas of the volunteer’s brain function. Particularly in the meditative Alpha brainwave patterns that are associated with a greater degree of relaxation, health, and healing.
No negative effects on the brain were found in the study. this shows that there is no harm to chiropractic adjustments but there are certainly benefits! Your health is worth it. Get your chiropractic adjustment today.
