Feeling the Effects of Stress: How it Changes Your Brain

blog-effect-of-stressJoin Dr. Randy Wurts, a neurologically focused chiropractor at inThrive Chiropractic, as he dives into how stress impacts brain function and structure.

Research from the Harvard Center for the Developing Child reveals the intricate development of our brain:

  • ? Brain Stem: Controls survival and bodily functions.
  • ? Cerebellum: Acts as the relay station and modulator.
  • ? Cerebrum: Manages higher functions like thinking and decision-making.

Stress can change how we use our brain and even rewire it. But there’s hope!

Dr. Randy’s chiropractic care involves a series of adjustments that reduce the nervous system’s stress load, helping to rewire the brain to its best potential. This allows optimal brain development in children and “turns on” the brain in adults.
