This class will cover what we know about each of these conditions, and how spinal dysfunction and impaired brain-body communication can contribute to these. We will discuss many chiropractic research studies that have investigated the effects of chiropractic on people with lower back pain and neck pain.

Whilst pain is a common reason for people to seek chiropractic care, this class will allower you to understand how pain can impact many aspects of our bodily functions. It will also allow you to effectively communicate to practice members the benefits of chiropractic care and how it can not only reduce pain itself but also improve nervous system function. This will ensure that the public knows that chiropractic has a far greater benefit than just pain relief.
