Basic Science Level 2

Basic Science Level 2

Level 2 and above are aimed at those who have gained some knowledge about anatomy, physiology, pathology, neuroscience and research methodology, and science in general. Dive deeper into what localized areas of spinal dysfunction (also known as vertebral subluxations) are. Learn about these central segmental motor control problems that lead to ongoing maladaptive central plastic changes, making it harder for the brain to accurately perceive what is happening inside the body and around it, why they occur and how this impacts health, brain (prefrontal cortex in particular), pain and function.
