Many associate chiropractic care with treating the physical aches and pains of daily life, but for many, chronic pain stems from depression and anxiety.
Depression alone affects over 15 million Americans, and the mental health crisis in this country is only worsening.
This unique kind of pain negatively affects your sleep, career goals, and personal relationships, but chiropractic treatment can help ease the pain depression and anxiety put on the body.
Chiropractic care focuses on relieving the central nervous system, which controls your mental and emotional health. Adjustments to certain parts of the body increase blood flow to better relax muscles, thus reducing the stress of those suffering from mental illness.
According to the Journal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research, 76% of patients who underwent chiropractic care saw improvements to their mental and emotional health.
Spinal disalignment can also put pressure on the areas of the brain responsible for neurological and chemical functions.
In a study published by the Annals of Vertebral Subluxation Research, it was found that 11 out of 15 patients who underwent spinal adjustments saw significant improvements in their depressive symptoms.
While medicine is often prescribed to fix these chemical imbalances, spinal realignments have been found to achieve a positive result naturally. If a medicinal solution is the best course of treatment, Dr. Massoud’s extensive training in herbal and nutritional medicine allows us to make recommendations regarding the biochemical causes of depression and anxiety.
Conquering mental illness is a difficult feat, but now is the time to break this vicious cycle, and chiropractic care may be just what you need to regain control of your emotional wellbeing.
