Chiropractic is Brain Octane and Makes You Stronger

Well before buttered coffee and MCT oil became a popular trend, Dr. Roger Sperry (a neurobiologist and Nobel award winner) had a staggering finding regarding human performance. He discovered that the movement of the spine generates 90% of stimulation and nutrition to the brain!

Recent research uncovered even more ways that a Chiropractic adjustment stimulates your brain function. Studies have shown that our brain increases its rate of metabolizing glucose after an adjustment. You’re already smart by staying regular with your care, but now science is proving that your care might make you even smarter :)

  • The gentle movement created during an adjustment has the potential to stimulate your brain and nervous system.
  • Metabolic changes after an adjustment have been linked to decreased pain levels and reduced muscle tension.
  • Research has postulated that adjustments decrease your fight or flight response which can lead to improved healing.

Use your brain! What would happen if more people in your life were getting more nutrition to their brain through healthy spinal movement? Make an appointment at our office for the people you live and work with. Healthier family + Healthier co-workers = Healthier you.

Getting Adjusted Makes You Stronger

Did you know that a Chiropractic adjustment doesn’t only help reduce your pain levels? It also enables you to get stronger! It’s true. Researchers measured the electrical activity in the arms and legs before, during and after a Chiropractic adjustment. What did they find? An increase in cortical drive post Chiropractic adjustment. That’s science-speak for more strength.

Stronger is better. Better stamina, better balance, better coordination, better performance in every area of your life. What will you do with more strength?

  • Your brain powers your movements and your strength through your nervous system.
  • Adjustments have been shown to increase your cortical drive, which helps make your stronger.
  • While one adjustment may not make you a champion powerlifter, this exciting new research is important for all of us who want to live an active lifestyle.

Pay attention. That’s right, consider being more mindful of where having more strength can be more positive in your life.

 Cafe of Life Chiropractic Center were highly recommended to me by a few of my neighbors. I had some long time lower back and neck issues that were bothering me -- and it was just time to fix the problem. I signed up for a 2 month program -- and wow, the results are amazing. My neck is moving again, my lower back feels great, and other parts are that I didn’t know were stuck are moving again too! Cafe of Life is technology forward -- I love the scans of my back so that I can see the progress. They also have complimentary services like massage too. The team over at Cafe of Life is professional, fun and on top of their game. Scheduling is easy -- little to no waiting when I arrive for my adjustment. Love these guys!
