I’m coming to Europe to run full weekend ‘The Reality Check’ seminars in the UK, France, Spain and Germany in April and May of 2019. So if you would like to be able to confidently communicate about chiropractic in a manner that is congruent with the latest scientific evidence these events are for you! Learn about the neuroplasticity model of chiropractic care so you understand how your adjustments definitely do work.
The last two decades have revealed that spinal adjustments change brain function. I will share this with you so you too can clearly communicate how your care is impacting your patients. And because the whole course is based on cutting-edge neuroscience research you can walk away confident that this information is current and solid.
The original theories about the chiropractic subluxation were based on the idea that dysfunctional spinal segments were ‘out of place’, or misaligned, and that this put pressure on the nerves exiting the spine. We now know that this theory is not really the best way to describe what a subluxation is. We have come to understand is that we don’t really put bones back in place when we adjust the spine. A vertebral subluxation is not so much the condition of a bone being out of place; it is more that a bone is functioning or moving in a less than ideal way – in a manner that is not ‘normal’ for the body. Today, over a hundred years on from that ‘first’ chiropractic adjustment, we know so much more about how the brain and the rest of the central nervous system functions. And we are beginning to glimpse the big picture of how chiropractic adjustments really work.
Contrary to earlier beliefs within the scientific community, a recent wave of discovery within the field of neuroscience has quite clearly revealed that the brain retains its ability to adapt to its ever-changing environment throughout life. Furthermore, it is becoming clear to neuroscientists how important it is for our brains to maintain an accurate and up-to-date inner ‘map’, of the location of our muscles and joints in 3D space and relative to each other, and how detrimental a faulty inner map can be for an individual. If you think about it, it’s really very simple. Most of what you perceive as reality is simply what your brain considers reality to be, or your brain’s translation and interpretation of all the information it gets from its sensory receptors (in your ears, eyes, skin, muscles, etc.). With this in mind, can you be sure that what you see is a complete and accurate reflection of what is in front of you? Neuroscientists know that this is not the case. For example, our eyes interpret the colour of an object based on what colour we think it should be, which is influenced by the colour of nearby objects. Our brain basically fills in the gaps, as needed, based on past experiences and expectations. You cannot really be certain that any of your sensory experiences accurately reflect what is going on within and around you! Your brain will not provide you with an exact translation of what its sensors tell it, but just how this affects a person’s health and wellbeing will be explored in depth throughout this conference.
So join me at any or all of these events next year and become a Viking like me with confidence and clarity about what chiropractic is and does!
