Depression and Chiropractic Care

  • Depression

Depression is a very tough subject to discuss, especially when you are the person affected.  It affects people’s physical day-to-day performance and is not simply their mind and also causes physical pain in some circumstances.  Eighteen percent of the U.S. population, age eighteen and older, in 2014 were diagnosed with an anxiety disorder.  Nearly half of those were also diagnosed with depression alongside their anxiety disorder.  This is typically associated with death, loss, or trauma of any kind.

A study from 2013 connected chiropractic care and easing the side effects from depression.    When people are depressed, it is easy to become careless about themselves.  Diet and personal care are most prominent to others around; however, simple tasks such as walking upright and keeping shoulders back take effort.  Depression is sometimes all consuming and it will take getting to the root of the depression first and foremost to turn it all around.  Chiropractic care has been shown to alleviate the secondary symptoms associated with slouching and the carelessness associated with self-worth and depression.
