Chiropractic Care for Anxiety and Depression

Do you often feel overcome by a deep sadness? Or are you often worried and anxious about the present and the future? You’re not alone. Anxiety and depression affect millions of people. Both conditions include migraines, headaches, body pains, muscle aches, irritability, inability to sleep, and fatigue.

According to the Anxiety and Depression Association of America, 322 million people worldwide suffer from depression. Several factors can trigger anxiety and cause depression, including losing a loved one, losing a job, divorce, relocation, getting married, illness, etc. However, a growing body of evidence suggests a link between upper cervical problems and anxiety and depression.

How Chiropractic Care Can Relieve Anxiety and Depression

The neck links the head and the rest of the body. It is made up of the top two bones, called the C1 and C2 vertebrae. When the neck vertebrae are correctly aligned, the brain and the nervous system can function optimally. Accidents, repetitive bad postures, and sports-related injuries can force the neck vertebrae out of alignment. Symptoms of neck trauma can cause and worsen depression and anxiety.

Many studies show that upper cervical chiropractic care can bring relief to sufferers of anxiety and depression.

Before administering care, the specific chiropractor will conduct tests to ascertain if chiropractic care will improve your condition. If any injuries are diagnosed, the upper cervical chiropractor will administer chiropractic adjustments and other maintenance.

Several studies show that upper cervical care releases essential hormones that neutralize pain and enhances neural-communication. Listed below are other benefits.

It Helps Relaxation. Sufferers of depression and anxiety are highly irritable; they find it difficult to relax. Chiropractic care promotes the release of relaxation and happiness hormones.

It Improves Sleep. If you suffer from depression and anxiety, you probably struggle to sleep soundly. If left unaddressed, your sleep disorder can worsen your mental health. 

Several studies have shown that after a chiropractic adjustment, people with sleep disorders reported improvements in their sleep quality.

It Relieves Headaches and Migraines. Sufferers of anxiety and depression often experience migraines and headaches. Chiropractic care can relieve these symptoms.

It Stabilizes Blood Pressure. High blood pressure is one of the conditions that plague sufferers of depression and anxiety. Chiropractic care promotes mental health and reduces symptoms like HBP.
