This video looks at whether neck pain has an impact on sensorimotor function in older people. A study determined how good older adults were with motor functions, like balance. They did this with groups that did and did not have neck pain and found that the adults with neck pain were worse are most of the tests than the group without neck pain. The researchers determined that the ‘altered information’ or the neck pain, was disturbing their brains’ ability to make sense of other sensory information. This affected their balance and increased their chance of falling. Chiropractic care can increase the accurate in the information between the spine and the brain. This can help the brain know what is going in and around the body – and can be improved by chiropractic care.
