Stress, Anxiety and Depression

Anxiety disorders affect almost 18% of American adults or about 40 million people. Of these cases, 23% are considered “severe” with debilitating, recurring symptoms.

Though anxiety disorders are most common, depression is the prominent cause of disability worldwide. The symptoms are unique for each patient, but the most common physical effects of stress, anxiety, and depression are:

  • Headache or migraine
  • Muscle tension and stiffness
  • Fatigue or inability to sleep
  • Pain all over the body
  • Inability to relax

Fortunately, chiropractic care is uniquely positioned to relieve these physical symptoms.

7 Benefits of Chiropractic Care for Stress, Anxiety, and Depression Relief

Woman experiencing symptoms of stress, anxiety or depression1. Chiropractic Care Aims for a Mind-Body Approach

  • Chiropractic care targets finding the correct balance between your body and mind.
  • A chiropractor will look at all health areas, including therapies, adjustments, diet, supplements, and exercise. When you take chiropractic help, no problem is left unsolved.

2. Chiropractic Care Lowers your Blood Pressure

  • Several studies support the idea that massage therapy and chiropractic care can lower blood pressure and symptoms of stress.
  • High blood pressure is a primary symptom of anxiety or stress. The researchers found that both chiropractic sessions and massage therapy lowered blood pressure.

3. Adjust Your Spine to Trigger the Positive Hormones

  • A spinal adjustment can induce a positive effect by activating positive hormones throughout your body. These hormones include:
    • a. Neurotensin – neutralizes pain caused by stress.
    • b. Cortisol – prevents pain caused by inflammation.
    • c. Oxytocin – increases neuro-communication and feelings of social bonding.

4. Promotes a Completely Natural Solution with No Side Effects

  • One of the outstanding benefits of chiropractic treatment is that it is entirely natural.
  • Chiropractic care reduces symptoms of stress or anxiety, so you can avoid taking medications and dealing with their side effects.

5. Relieves Stiffness, Tension, Headache or Migraines

  • Over 35 million Americans are affected by migraines headaches.
  • Chiropractic care can help reduce stress and stiffness. Additionally, it can help relieve the pain associated with tension headaches, as many patients with mental health disorders experience migraines.

6. Chiropractic Care Helps You Fall Asleep Easily

  • Insomnia is also a symptom of anxiety or depression. With chiropractic care, you may find it a little easier to fall asleep.
  • Studies report that chiropractic manipulation can improve the patient’s sleep patterns. Massage therapy has also shown promising results.

7. Chiropractic Care Encourages relaxation

  • Studies have proved that after a chiropractic adjustment, muscle activity is reduced by 25%. It is soundproof for relaxation during a chiropractic session.
  • This kind of relaxation can help patients who suffer from stress and strain from anxiety or depression.

Ok so I got to my appointment early to complete the new patient paperwork and was immediately met with one of the nicest smiles I haven’t seen in 2 years since the pandemic, Dr. Cox! He was helpful and even made fun of himself about the working of the tablet. The office is immaculate though from the outside of the building I was a bit worried ?I initially went in for the Slim program and was introduced to Rena! What a wonderful surprise, So knowledgeable brought tears to my eyes with all of the new information she provided. I feel safe in Life Aligned hands and will now be a part of their family!

Above what we expected. Both my husband and I have found Life Aligned Wellness more than we anticipated. We have both been to chiropractors in the past but this is so much more advanced with the technology and the techniques both Dr. Cox and Dr. Kabala have shown to help us. We have to drive 40 minutes one way to their office but it is well worth it. Thank you to both Dr. Cox and Dr. Kabala for their services.

I have had years of discomfort stemming from misalignment of my spine. Despite yoga, massage and heat therapy, I still could not relief the nerve irritation, tight muscles, and restricted range of motion. During my first adjustment, which was gentle and not uncomfortable, I felt instant improvement. I am eager to continue on this healing journey with the talented and compassionate team at Life Aligned Wellness Center.
