Chiropractic and pain relief

Dr. Jeff McQuaite, a Doylestown Chiropractor, has found a new study demonstrating chiropractic’s effectiveness in relieving pain.  This new study added more information to the way we understand how chiropractic adjustments help the brain with pain relief.  The New Zealand College of Chiropractic study focused on people with a history of reoccurring neck stiffness and/or neck pain but showed no acute symptoms at the time of the study.  The subjects were hooked up to computers that read brainwaves, and were given chiropractic adjustments. When they were adjusted, the computers showed that parts of the brain where pain and suffering occurs had less activity.   These findings may help to explain the mechanisms responsible for the effective relief of pain and restoration of functional ability documented after spinal manipulation treatment.
