The brain is a marvelous organ. It is
like the computer for the body processing input and sending output every second of life
for each of us humans in Auburn. Pain affects
its function to safeguard the body. In chronic low back pain, pain
the Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. cares for daily, the brain’s dorsolateral prefrontal cortex shrinks
along with brain gray matter reduction and cognitive
ability impairment. Treating chronic pain is found to help the dorsolateral
prefrontal cortex thicken after treatment. Research like this suggests
that treating chronic pain can restore normal brain function.

pain, fear of exercise and movement in additional to other
related brain responses. (2) Further, chiropractic spinal adjustments were
found to possibly adjust central
processing of pain and unpleasantness. (3) Certainly, research
in this area of spinal manipulation effects on the brain and its function is advancing.
It proposes that the changes happen in brain function

changes. (4) The potential for spinal manipulation to influence
