How Chiropractic Care Can Help Your Anxiety and Depression

Chiropractic care for Anxiety and Depression

Over 40 million people today suffer from some kind of anxiety and unfortunately most of these people use anti-anxiety medications. In most cases, these medications merely mask the symptoms and do not solve any problems. In addition, your body can get used to taking these opioids and can start to feel worse if you don’t take the drugs.

You do have an alternative.

Chiropractic Care, a natural, safe, no drug (opioid) option is available.  Chiropractic care for anxiety and depression has been shown to be helpful for many people.

Symptoms of Anxiety and Depression

Some of the most commonly observed anxiety symptoms are:

  • Migraines or headaches
  • Muscle stiffness and strain
  • Inability to relax
  • Physical weakness
  • Lack of concentration
  • Constant worry and fear
  • Chest tightness
  • Shallow breathing

Your central nervous system (CNS) is the communication super highway when it comes to controlling your bodily functions. Just like any regular roadway it can become congested and blocked.

When your spine is out of alignment (spinal misalignment) it is like traffic at rush hour; barely anything moves in or out.  When your brain cannot talk to your body, bad things happen and this can lead to serious health issues, like anxiety and/or depression.

A misaligned spine interferes with the production of hormones and chemicals it needs to keep you in good health. Without this production you start to feel worse, possibly anxious, upset and even depressed and while drugs can trick your mind it does nothing for your body, so the symptoms persist, continue and you really don’t improve. These negative feelings further aggravate your depression and increase your anxiety.

The Importance of Mind and Body Balance

Your brain and body are hardwired for good reason; communication. A strong, healthy connection between your mind and body is directly related to your physical health and without it many problems can and will affect you; from general health, mental health and bodily function.

With chiropractic care for anxiety and depression and regular chiropractic care for maintenance, your experienced chiropractor will help improve your overall health. As your spinal alignment improves, your communication pathways get unblocked and your body can now report problems to your brain to solve and you start to feel better, healthier, less anxious, less depressed and less pain.

How Effective is Chiropractic Care?

A study measuring electrical activity (and possible spasms) of muscles showed a 25% reduction after chiropractic care sessions. (Source: https://www.rtor.org/2019/02/21/mental-health-and-chiropractic-care/) This reduction and relaxation is important for relieving stress, anxiety, and depression.
