Brain fog, memory problems, concentration, and the inability to form clear thoughts is an issue that many will face at some point. The progression of losing the ability to focus or think clearly can lead to decreased productivity with normal daily tasks, work, or taking care of a household. It can be a short-term issue experience caused by sleep deprivation or stress. However, if these issues are allowed to continue it can negatively change an individual’s quality of life.

Spinal Alignment Affects Brain Functions

The underlying issue/s associated with brain function and the ability to focus are connected to the spine being out of alignment. Individuals often have poor spinal alignment without even realizing it is happening. It affects the body’s blood and nerve transmitting abilities to complete normal daily tasks. Chiropractic treatment is an expert-based approach that focuses on restoring spinal alignment to increase an individual’s health and brain function. Proper spinal alignment allows the nerves to relay messages clearly and optimally through the spinal cord to the brain. This allows for:
  • Clear thinking
  • Improved memory
  • Better decision making
  • Staying focused on tasks

Chiropractic Optimal Nerve Flow

When the central nervous system/brain/spinal cord is not transmitting properly it can lead to significant issues with concentration and productivity. When nerve energy and brain function is optimized productivity is improved. Research has shown that chiropractic can help:
  • Reduce the risk of disease
  • Prevent injuries
  • Prevent pain conditions
  • Improved quality of life
Chiropractic medicine can increase the ability to focus, optimize brain health, and more.

Body Composition

Tracing the sources of fatigue

There is a difference between being tired periodically from a long day and being tired daily. Being tired daily is also known as Chronic Fatigue Syndrome. This is a fatigue condition that has lasted longer than 6 months. It is typical to experience many of the symptoms of fatigue that disrupt the ability to achieve health goals like:
  • Weight loss
  • Muscle gain
  • Maintaining body weight
Symptoms include:
  • Constantly tired
  • Reduced appetite
  • Moodiness
  • Reaction time slows down
  • Memory Loss
  • Dizziness
The nature of hectic daily schedules can allow sources of fatigue to pile up. The objective is to find a balance between home, work, physical activity, diet, etc. Chiropractic medicine and health coaching can help develop an optimal plan to get healthy.
