The Impact of Stress on the Brain and Health
By: SideCar, LLC

Course Description

This class will cover the science about how stress and traumatic experiences negatively impacts our brain function and our health by causing most of the common chronic diseases of today. It specifically covers the science that is showing us that stress turns off the prefrontal cortex. This is really relevant to us chiropractors, since we know we can impact the processing of the prefrontal cortex when we adjust subluxations. This is also really important since the prefrontal cortex is vital for one’s intelligence, movement control, pain processing, mental health, immune system and inflammation (thus most chronic diseases)! The prefrontal cortex makes you who you are, thus stress changes you in a major way. This class also covers how to recognize chronic stress in your practice members.
