A great example of neuroplasticity is the process of learning to ride a bicycle. We started off very wobbly when we first learnt to ride but once our brain and body learn to adapt, riding on a bike becomes a second nature.
However, neuroplasticity is also the contributor to the development of chronic pain. Pain is normally a response to tissue damage in our body. Chronic pain develops when our nervous system ‘retains’ the painful informations eventhough the tissue damage has fully recovered. This results in a constant flow of painful messages to the brain, thus causing chronic pain.
Chronic pain can triggers a myriad of negative responses in our body such as chronic inflammation, stress response, cardiovascular issues and sleep problems.
Neuroplasticity is the amazing ability for our nervous system to adapt to our body. It is however; non-selective in what it learns. When it comes to the musculoskeletal system, a chiropractor is an expert that can educate your nervous system to allow correct functionings of our musculoskeletal system.
At Spearwood Chiropractic, our chiropractors are trained to identify the root cause of the problem. We will go through a detailed assessment with our patient before formulating a personalised treatment and rehab plan to eliminate the root cause of the problem. No individual is the same! Our goal is to help our patients achieve long-term relieve and wellbeing.
