Brain Imbalance Syndrome May Be Affected by Chiropractcy

Brain Imbalance Syndrome May Be Affected by Chiropractic Treatment

This year’s keynote speaker at the Annual Meeting of the New Zealand Chiropractors’ Association is Dr John Donofrio, President of the American Chiropractic Neurology Board.

The meeting, in Hamilton on 24th May, which will celebrate 100 years of chiropractic in New Zealand, will hear Dr Donofrio talk about the latest evidence linking attention deficit hyperactivity, autism, dyslexia and a range of other neurobehavioral and developmental disorders to an imbalance between the two hemispheres of the brain.

Traditionally clinicians have viewed these disorders as separate entities, however advancements in evaluative capabilities and diagnostic imaging have revealed striking similarities so that these disorders may be considered points on a common spectrum of Neurobehavioral/Developmental Disorders.

Dr Donofrio explains: `A lot of chiropractors, let alone members of the public, don’t understand what we can do. These conditions all have in common an underlying functional imbalance or under-connectivity of electrical (brain) activity within and between the right and left sides of the brain. As a result, the brain literally becomes desynchronized or “out of rhythm. When we intervene neurologically we can demonstrate an outcome on all sorts of measures, such as heart rate, cortisol levels or oxygen perfusion, as we help the body start to function properly again. It is this balance that allows the body to experience optimum health.
