Ep. 309 – How a Lost Arm Led to Struggles in a Business Man’s Brain

Happy Monday Train Your Brain Podcast listeners! Today on Episode 309 Dr. Trayford your host and brain training coach reviews a case study of a man who lost an arm and how it affected his brain function. The man lost his arm as a child when a homemade pipe bomb went off and he had to have his arm amputated. As an adult he started having brain issues, seemingly unrelated to his amputated arm but in fact they were related.

The Homunculus is an image of a man, showing the body parts in proportion with how in-tune the brain is with each area. The hands and mouth for example are exaggerated in size since the brain and nerves are most sensitive there. Let’s consider the two main aspects of brain function: sensory and motor. The brain often sees the body differently than we really are or as others see us. This can affect how your brain works and thinks. So, when an event like an amputation occurs, the brain has to recalibrate the way it processes the body.

The tip for today is tending to old injuries. Some injuries such as tearing a ligament or damaging cartilage need to be fixed. If not, over time it can affect the brain. Find a qualified Chiropractic Neurologist anywhere in the world if you have an old injury that could have affected your brain function.
