Chiro Neuro Rehabilitation:
Your brain and associated nervous system is an incredibly amazing system. It is connected to every part of your body and controls everything including the function of your organs, your blood pressure and coordinates your immune response. It is responsible for your sleep-wake cycles, your emotional regulation and the normal function of your whole body. For those wanting to improve their health issues, there may be benefit from highly specific exercises combined with chiropractic care, preferably in co-management with your Dr or health specialist. Chiro Neuro Rehab utilises the science of neuroplasticity and its aim is to improve your function and your wellbeing.
