Make Better Decisions With Chiropractic Care

By Chris Brown

Our current state of being is made up, in large part, by the past decisions we've made. Simply improving one's future decisions can, in turn, greatly improve their quality of life. While this might sound simple, altering one's daily decisions can be a difficult task, especially if you have become used to unhealthy decisions which bring immediate gratification. Chiropractic, luckily, is able to help you improve your decision making by raising your body to a higher, more decisive state.

Make Calmer Decisions

We all know we make better decisions when we are calm, clear, and collected. Stressed and agitated states improve thinking and quick decision making in the short-term. However, this advantage quickly starts reversing if stress levels once the stores of adrenaline and neuroenhancers deplete. In the chronically stressed modern age, where moments of rest are at a premium, clearer decisions come to those who calm their anxiety. Chiropractic has been shown to help induce this parasympathetic (or calming) state. A 2020 study out of Italy found that chiropractic treatments made changes at a neurobiological level which induced a parasympathetic state in patients. The study concluded that its biological effects could even play a significant role in the treatment of generalized anxiety disorder and major depression.

Make Smarter Decisions

Chiropractic can not only calm us down, it has the ability to make our brains work smarter. And a smarter brain, means a smarter, more intelligently thought-out decision. A primary result of spinal manipulation is optimized brain-body communication. This increased neural communication leads to an array of improved bodily functions, one of which is increased neuroplasticity in the brain. Neuroplasticity is the brain's ability to modify itself in order to learn, build memories, and function efficiently. As a result, one three-year study found improvements in brain function (studied via brain scans) following chiropractic adjustments.

Make More Decisions Based Out of Positive Self-Interest

The sad truth is that we often sabotage ourselves in our decision making. Most people know the decision they should make, or the decision that the best version of themselves would make. However, fear of failure or, just as common, fear of success often leans us towards the unhealthy decision. In a phenomenon known as psychological momentum (PM), the results of previous decisions dramatically improve or reduce a person's performance level and, ultimately, the outcome of future efforts. The phenomenon has been observed in everyone from high-level athletes to businesspeople. Simply deciding to better yourself by committing to regular chiropractic care can be the start to a more positive train of thought about oneself. Rather than focusing on a negative decision-making state, scheduling regular chiropractic care can proactively start your mind thinking in a more positive, productive thought pattern. Therefore, future decisions will come from a state of strength, rather than the mindset of someone expecting a negative outcome.
