In today’s blog we are going to talk about some of the exciting new revelations that have recently been made in the field of chiropractic. Thanks to ChiroSecure’s contributions through the supporters programme at The New Zealand College of Chiropractic the institution continues to make great strides in field of chiropractic research.
We recently received a letter of appreciation from The New Zealand College of Chiropractic’s director of research Dr. Heidi Haavik, which outlined some the latest discoveries that had been made in the field of chiropractic.
The first project that she described was recently published under the title “Experiment Brain Research”. It was an evaluation experiment that demonstrated the differences in an individual’s muscle contraction response following a full spine chiropractic adjustment.
The research provided further evidence of the value of chiropractic care and addressed aspects of sensorimotor integration. This is a specific area of chiropractic that has procured much interest over the last few years. The experiment was ultimately successful and led to a second research project.
The letter we received from The New Zealand College of Chiropractic’s also introduced the follow up research project, a collaboration with researchers from The Centre for Chiropractic Research, that included chiropractors from Denmark, Canada and Australia.
The experiment focused on executive functions and the mechanism by which the brain integrates and coordinates the operations of the multiple neural systems in order to solve problems. The end result of the experiment suggested that chiropractic adjustments dramatically impact these functions and increase an individual’s neural function
The results of these two experiments once again provide further evidence for continuing advocacy of the benefits of chiropractic for everyone! It also re-affirms the importance of continuing to research brain and spinal cord connections and the benefits of spinal alignments.
At ChiroSecure we are proud supporters of the work being done by institutions such as The New Zealand College of Chiropractic and The Centre for Chiropractic research. We are proud to say that we continue to contribute funds to further support these experiments and learn more about the brain and spinal chord.
These new findings once again leave us feeling optimistic and excited about the future!
