When most people think of chiropractic care they tend to associate it with treatment for headaches, back pain and other types of aches and pains as well as car accidents.
What if the pain felt isn’t physical?
Depression and anxiety are becoming more prevalent in the United States. The most common treatment is medication. Still, many would prefer to take the natural route to healing. This can include chiropractic.
How can chiropractic help depression, anxiety, and other mental health issues?
The answer is a resounding YES.
Chronic Pain is a Common Cause of Depression
Chronic pain often becomes the center of your world. It’s not possible to enjoy life when you are in constant pain. You just don’t feel like yourself anymore and often people wonder if life is worth living anymore. Regular chiropractic adjustments have been proven to decrease depression, pain, and anxiety and allow for a healthier life.
Chiropractic Decreases Brain Fog Induced by Pain
It’s a simple fact that pain will impair your ability to think clearly as well as wreak havoc on your mood. Over time chronic pain can lead to mental health issues including depression. When the spine becomes aligned, muscle tension decrease as well as the pain. Along with that decrease comes a better ability to focus and live your life. The result is a brighter outlook.
Corrects Misalignments Helping to Heal the Nervous System
Our body chemistry helps to regulate our moods. This chemistry is all controlled by the nervous system. Misalignments in the spine can cause pressure on the brain stem leading to interference both neurologically and chemically. Removing that pressure by getting back in alignment allows the pressure to come off of the brain stem and function to return to normal.
The fact is that routine chiropractic care helps you stay well both mentally and physically.
