Neuroplasticity: the ability of the brain to change itself

Chiropractic neurology is an evidence-based application of brain-based therapies designed to selectively target and strengthen the function of neurological systems in order to promote neuroplasticity, optimize brain health and maximize performance.

This video is a simple and beautifully illustrated piece that will teach you the basic concept of neuroplasticity which is the foundation of any effective brain-based therapy or learning experience.

Although the principles of neuroplasticity apply to any learned experience, one might be inclined to think that all one would have to do to improve their brain is to repeat an activity or thought process until they become better at it. Although this may be true in some situations or tasks, but when it comes to healing and restoring brain function after a brain injury or illness-one needs to be able to measure the function of neurological systems, be able to identify exactly where the break down of communication is occurring, and be able to design therapies to target and strengthen function in those regions. Therefore, it is the diagnostic precision and specificity of applied interventions that makes chiropractic neurology so unique.
