Blood Flow To Your Brain
Blood flow to the brain is significantly decreased in people with moderate to high scores on the neck disability index (a questionnaire we use in our office). Once again, as in many recent studies evaluating the impact of pain on the brain, these findings demonstrate that muscloskeletal problems of the spine result in profound changes in central nervous system function. This is important only if you'd like to have normal blood flow to your brain (and therefore normal nutrients and oxygen levels)!
