Enhancing Student Memory, Recall, and Learning: The Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Enhancing Student Memory, Recall, and Learning: The Benefits of Chiropractic Care

In the whirlwind of academia, students often find themselves grappling with an avalanche of information, deadlines, and the pressure to perform. Amidst this chaos, the ability to retain knowledge, recall it efficiently, and learn effectively becomes paramount. While conventional study techniques and academic support systems play significant roles, there’s another ally that students might not immediately consider: chiropractic care.

Chiropractic care encompasses a holistic approach to health and wellness, aiming to optimize the function of the nervous system through spinal adjustments. Interestingly, this approach can have profound effects on memory, recall, and learning, making it a valuable asset in the student’s arsenal. Let’s delve into how chiropractic care benefits students’ cognitive functions:

1. Stress Reduction

The demands of student life often lead to heightened stress levels, which can impede cognitive function. Chiropractic adjustments have been shown to reduce stress by balancing the body’s stress response systems, including the release of stress hormones like cortisol. By promoting relaxation and easing tension, chiropractic care creates an optimal environment for learning and memory consolidation.

2. Improved Brain-Body Communication

The nervous system is the body’s communication network, transmitting signals between the brain and the rest of the body. When spinal misalignments (subluxations) occur, they can disrupt this communication, leading to a host of issues, including cognitive dysfunction. Chiropractic adjustments correct these misalignments, enhancing neural connectivity and facilitating efficient brain-body communication, which is crucial for learning and memory.

3. Enhanced Blood Flow and Oxygenation

Proper blood flow is essential for delivering oxygen and nutrients to the brain, fueling cognitive processes. Spinal adjustments have been shown to improve blood circulation, particularly to the brain, ensuring optimal oxygenation and nutrient delivery. This enhanced blood flow can sharpen focus, boost memory retention, and support overall cognitive function.

4. Posture Correction

Hours spent hunched over textbooks or staring at screens can wreak havoc on posture, leading to spinal misalignments and muscle tension. Chiropractic care addresses postural issues, realigning the spine and relieving tension in the muscles. With improved posture comes better breathing, circulation, and nerve function, all of which contribute to enhanced cognitive performance.

5. Stress Management Techniques

In addition to spinal adjustments, chiropractors often provide guidance on stress management techniques, such as relaxation exercises, breathing techniques, and lifestyle modifications. These strategies empower students to better cope with academic pressures, fostering a conducive mental state for learning and memory recall.


In the fast-paced world of academia, every advantage counts, and chiropractic care offers a unique set of benefits for students seeking to optimize their cognitive performance. By reducing stress, improving brain-body communication, enhancing blood flow, correcting posture, and providing stress management techniques, chiropractic care can be a valuable ally in the quest for academic excellence. As students strive to excel in their studies, integrating chiropractic care into their wellness routine could be the key to unlocking their full cognitive potential.

Enhancing Baseball Performance: The Role of Chiropractic Care in Improving Reaction Times

Enhancing Baseball Performance: The Role of Chiropractic Care in Improving Reaction Times

Baseball, a game of split-second decisions and reflexes, demands peak physical and mental performance from its players. One of the critical aspects of excelling in baseball is having quick reaction times. Whether it’s a batter responding to a fastball or a fielder making a rapid play, the ability to react swiftly can make all the difference. Interestingly, chiropractic care has emerged as a valuable tool in enhancing these reaction times, contributing to better overall performance on the field.

Understanding Reaction Times in Baseball
Reaction time in baseball is the interval between recognizing a stimulus, such as a pitched ball, and responding to it. This involves a complex interaction between the brain, nervous system, and muscles. Even a slight delay can turn a home run into a strikeout or a perfect catch into a missed opportunity. Therefore, athletes are continually seeking ways to improve their reflexes and ensure their bodies are functioning optimally.

Chiropractic Care: More Than Just Back Adjustments
Chiropractors focus on the neuromusculoskeletal system, which includes nerves, muscles, and bones. By ensuring this system is functioning correctly, chiropractors can help enhance an athlete’s overall physical performance.

For baseball players, chiropractic adjustments can improve the efficiency of nerve signal transmission. This means the brain can communicate with the muscles more effectively, leading to quicker and more precise reactions. Additionally, regular chiropractic care can help maintain flexibility, reduce muscle tension, and prevent injuries, all of which are crucial for maintaining peak performance.

Research and Real-World Applications
Studies have shown that chiropractic care can positively impact reaction times. For example, a study published in the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics found that chiropractic adjustments improved reaction times in a group of athletes. These findings are supported by anecdotal evidence from professional athletes who incorporate chiropractic care into their training regimens.

Many Major League Baseball (MLB) teams have recognized the benefits of chiropractic care. Teams like the San Francisco Giants and the Atlanta Braves have chiropractors on staff to ensure their players receive regular adjustments. These athletes have reported improvements in their reaction times, overall performance, and a decrease in injuries.

In the high-stakes world of baseball, where every millisecond counts, optimizing reaction times is essential. Chiropractic care offers a holistic approach to enhancing these reflexes by ensuring the neuromusculoskeletal system is functioning at its best. As more athletes and teams embrace this form of care, we can expect to see even greater feats of agility and performance on the diamond. Whether you’re a professional player or you have a passionate t-ball player, incorporating chiropractic care might just be the game-changer you need.

Welcoming Our New Chiropractor!

Welcoming Our New Chiropractor!

Dear Valued Patients and Staff,

I am thrilled to announce the newest addition to our chiropractic team, Dr. Jason Rounds. Dr. Rounds brings with him 8 years of Chiropractic experience, graduating from Logan University in 2016. He has worked in family chiropractic settings, which makes him a great fit for our patients. We are confident that his expertise will further enhance the quality of care we provide at Adjust.

About Dr. Rounds: Dr. Rounds was born in Manhattan Kansas. He attended Logan University in St. Louis, Missouri. Here he earned his Bachelor of Human Biology, Certifications in Physical therapy and a Doctorate in Chiropractic in 2016.

Prior to attending Chiropractic school, Dr. Rounds spent 15 years working as a massage therapist with extensive studies in myofascial bodywork, therapeutic kinesiology, as well as multiple techniques including Swedish massage, Shiatsu, Reflexology and other deep tissue modalities. However, this is not how he entered Chiropractic. Dr. Rounds is a former owner of a residential and commercial construction company. After workinng many years in this demanding profession, he sought help for his health:

“I could not believe the results that Chiropractic delivered. I was so impressed with my results that I changed careers so that I could help others, like I was helped. I believe that more people need to be introduced to the natural healing Chiropractic provides. I truly enjoy creatively applying to the human body the same theory from construction:
A strong foundation leads to a true and correct structure.

To this day I believe this holds true for the human body as well. Having come from parents with a great sense of adventure. I have followed family from Maine, where I learned Massage, to Alaska, where I learned Myofascial techniques and other modalities. From there I went all the way into Canada and on down to Mississippi, where I first learned about the Integrity Doctors. I worked with Dr. Moore at Moore Chiropractic in Mississippi for a year, as an Integrity
Doctor Intern. After this, I spent years expanding my skills and knowledge with Hillcrest Chiropractors, another great Integrity Doctors team.”
