What Are Neurotransmitters?


Neurotransmitters aren’t well known. Many people probably don’t even know what they are. But not only are they important to your body’s health and functioning, they may potentially play a huge role in correcting idiopathic scoliosis.

So, what exactly are neurotransmitters? They’re chemicals our brain uses to communicate with the rest of the body. Neurotransmitters work like crossing guards at key intersections in the nervous system. Certain neurotransmitters allow the brain’s message to pass, while others don’t. If your neurotransmitters aren’t properly balanced, it can create huge communication problems. Important messages from your brain can get blocked.

Neurotransmitters and Scoliosis

No one is really quite sure how, or why, scoliosis begins. But new research suggests a neurotransmitter imbalance could play a huge roll in spinal curvatures. Quite simply put, an imbalance means that vital messages are not reaching your spine or its surrounding muscles. Due to the confusion, the body may not carry itself properly, allowing the spine to curve.

How To Fix A Neurotransmitter Imbalance

Neurotransmitters come from amino acids that are then metabolized by certain enzymes. If your body is lacking the proper acids or enzymes, this may be the cause of your imbalance. Thankfully, there’s a very simple urinalysis test to determine your neurotransmitter levels – and it only takes one morning! At ScoliSMART, we test your neurotransmitters, and our doctors work with you to develop the right diet for your body – one that is high in the necessary amino acids and enzymes and will get your neurotransmitters in balance.

Can This Solve Your Scoliosis?

ScoliSMART has developed a multi-disciplinary approach that is the best non-surgical scoliosis treatment in NYC. Having a proper diet and balancing your neurotransmitters are only part of the equation. While these steps will allow your brain to clearly communicate with your spine and its surrounding muscles, they will also enable you to participate in our revolutionary Auto Response Training exercise regimen. These exercises use the body’s natural abilities to trigger reflexes in the muscles around the spine to naturally correct your scoliosis. The best part about our treatment program is that, after an initial training period with our doctors, you can do all of it in the comfort of your own home. This means that you control your own recovery.
