What Can Chiropractic Care Do for My Anxiety and Depression?


Finding Balance Between the Mind and the Body

As with most everything in life, it’s all about balance. Balancing how the mind and bodywork together can be a key to managing anxiety and depression. Alleviating spinal misalignments ensures the body can function optimally, which in turn allows the mind to focus on what it needs to heal. It’s all about balancing spinal health, nutrition, exercise, and mental health to see what has the most positive impact on your physical and mental health.

Releases Positive Hormones

Chiropractic adjustments trigger a hormone release within the body of good hormones like oxytocin and cortisol. These hormones can have a positive effect on your overall health and wellbeing. They can reduce stress, boost feelings of social bonding, and alleviate pain from inflammation to improve your overall mental state.

Promotes Sleep

Not getting the appropriate amount of sleep only exacerbates mental symptoms of anxiety and stress. With chiropractic care, sleeping is made easier as studies have shown it can improve healthy sleep patterns.

An All-Natural Solution without Side Effects

Medications that are taken for anxiety and depression can also come with unwanted side effects such as fatigue, weight gain, or insomnia. Chiropractic care is all-natural and helps reduce anxiety and depression without side effects.

Lowers Blood Pressure

High blood pressure is a common side effect of anxiety and depression. Chiropractic care has been shown to lower blood pressure, proving that chiropractic care can help decrease symptoms associated with anxiety and depression. This can help those who suffer from mental health issues feel more at ease and stable as they utilize chiropractic care to manage their symptoms.

Relieves Tension

Another common side effect of anxiety and depression is muscle tension. Chiropractic care not only improves spinal health but also musculoskeletal health to relieve muscle tightness and tension that can cause headaches and stiffness that are associated with anxiety and depression. Alleviating these painful symptoms can go a long way towards helping those with anxiety and depression find rest and relaxation.

If you or someone you love is affected by anxiety or depression, chiropractic care can help. Find hope and healing through regular chiropractic care that focuses on whole-body health to improve both physical and mental health.
