Depression is more than just being sad and “down in the dumps.” It’s a state in which your mind and body lose the will to perform normal tasks and attend to daily responsibilities. While we all can have bad days, it is important to pay close attention to see if these feelings of sadness and decreased drive persist.
Does Chiropractic Help?
Our focus is on the health of your nervous system, which includes your brain and spine. Symptoms of depression often stem from decreased health to your brain, causing changes in your mood and concentration. Through chiropractic adjustments, nerve interference is reduced allowing for proper spinal alignment. This realigning takes pressure off your nerves, allowing your brain to better communicate with the rest of your body.
Additionally, chiropractic adjustments have been known to decrease pain and improve joint movement. With actively moving joints, this movement stimulates the brain to promote better overall balance, control, and coordination of your body. With a healthy spine and nervous system, you may experience decreased pain and stress and improved mood and concentration.
