Video: How chiropractic adjustments affect the nervous system

The chiropractic adjustment is the claim to fame for our profession.  Whereas in the past we had ‘speculated’ about how the adjustment affects the nervous system- now these mechanisms are better understood.  In this on-line video functional neurologist Jeroen (Jay) Postma explains the functional neurological influences of an adjustment, by analysing anatomical, physiological, and clinical features of the nerve supply of the joint mechanics in various parts of the body. This module is a real eye opener for the chiropractor who wants to be able to explain how chiropractic effects the nervous system.  Everything you didn’t learn in school- but is so important in the understanding of the neurophysiology of spinal manipulation. Among topics covered are:

  • Function of the articular receptor systems;
  • Arthro-kinetic reflexes;
  • Coupled spinal motion and manipulation;
  • Mechanoreceptor effects on muscle tone;
  • •Descending inhibitory controls and the modulatory effects on the neuraxis;
  • Adjusting techniques;
  • Latest scientific research on manipulation;

This lecture and 15 question Hot Potatoes quiz take approximately 1 hour to complete.
