The Brain That Changes Itself

Hearing about the potential for change through chiropractic neurology is what first excited me about a career in chiropractic. Then some years later, discovering the mind-blowing possibilities of change through neuroplasticity is what motivated me to stay the course and be the doctor I wanted to be, and shape a particular kind of practice. It’s a long, steep road because people don’t see chiropractic this way. But to stay the course you need to follow your heart, and this book is something that inspired me immensely. Here is an excerpt and interview on the topic with the author Dr Norman Doidge.

Psychiatrist and psychoanalyst, Dr Norman Doidge, talks about an astonishing new science called neuroplasticity, which is overthrowing the centuries-old notion that the human brain is immutable. His new book, “The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories Of Personal Triumph From The Frontiers Of Brain Science” will permanently alter the way we look at our brains, human nature, and human potential.
