Research

Have you ever heard the phrase, “Movement Is Life.”

Recent research shows that is exactly the case especially when it comes to neck and brain health. 

A study published in Nature found that head movement is a major contributor when it comes to cerebrospinal fluid circulation.

Why is that important? 

Cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) plays several vital roles when it comes to the health of the brain including, maintaining a healthy environment for the brain and nerves, it acts to protects to brain spinal cord and nerves, provides proper nutrients to the brain, helps with immune system control and washes away waste that is created by metabolic processes. The waste if not removed can lead to neurodegenerative diseases including Alzheimer’s and dementia.

The study measured the flow of cerebrospinal fluid before and after head rotations were performed. They found that after head rotations and movement it increased the circulation of CSF. 

Why does that matter to you?

As we age we often times will get tightness and a decrease range of motion of the neck. This study points out that it is important for us to maintain that movement as it has positive effects when it comes brain health and could lead to decreasing the chance for developing neurodegenerative diseases due to properly functioning CSF. However, more studies need to be done before that conclusion can be drawn.
