“The purpose of this study was to investigate whether there are alterations in cerebellar output in a subclinical neck pain (SCNP) group and whether spinal manipulation before motor sequence learning might restore the baseline functional relationship between the cerebellum and motor cortex.”
When a joint does not move properly the entire motion segment (joint, muscles, tendons, sensory and motor nerves, and associated spinal cord and brain areas) are all adversely affected.
Chiropractors are the only healthcare practitioners whose entire education and training is focused upon detecting vertebral subluxation complex (VSC) or joint dysfunction (motion unit dysfunction).
