Posted on Feb 24, 2015

Doctors,
 Join us tonight from 7:00-9:00 PM CT when Dr. Hall will be presenting "Neurology 302: Chiropractic Considerations of Pain on the Central Nervous System"

This presentation will address the more contemporary understandings of the physiological changes that occur within the central nervous system due to the adverse presence of pain. Frontal and parietal lobe diminished blood flow, hypometabolism, and hypervigilant sympathetic nervous system will be shown. The clinical meaning of this physiological change will be discussed in depth as it relates to chiropractic management, patient outcomes, and prognostic determinations.
