How Chiropractic Helps Calm Life Down
By Sandy Schroeder
We all get worried sometimes. But when someone feels anxious or afraid to the point of panic much of the time, there may be an anxiety disorder, such as post-traumatic stress, an obsessive-compulsive disorder, or a panic attack, according to the Harvard medical community.
Unfortunately, some 40 million American adults deal with this on a regular basis. They are treated with appropriate medications, therapies, hypnosis and meditation seeing psychologists and psychiatrists.
You may not feel you are at that level of anxiety, but you might benefit from a few less sleepless nights, and more relaxed days. Sometimes one sleepless night sets off more, and ongoing tiredness conspires to make us feel jumpy or agitated.
Wherever you are, chiropractic may be able to help assess the situation, and provide assistance.
When you come in to The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you, your chiropractor can talk with you about your anxiety and help you consider ways to deal with it, either in chiropractic treatment, or by a referral to a psychologist or psychiatrist. Sometimes both approaches can work together to work through the situation.
Chiropractic help often takes the form of spinal adjustments to remove misalignments and improve spinal communication for the entire body. This may result in far-reaching pain relief in areas such as the back, neck, or other joints. At the same time, it may generate a new sense of well-being, more mental clarity, better sleep, and more energy.
Wellness is an individual thing. As you assess your results, you may find that weekly chiropractic visits may help you put everything into perspective. As you feel more relaxed, you may find it easier to deal with daily stress, heavy workloads, or ongoing family pressures.
Health and Wellness
I have watched many individuals use ongoing chiropractic assistance as the health and wellness base that they needed. As they tried stress reduction with deep breathing exercises, gentle yoga classes or mindfulness meditation, they also reduced work hours, lost weight, ate better and exercised more. Over a period of time they created new, healthier patterns that worked for them and their families.
If you are experiencing ongoing anxiety that persists, see your doctor for a counseling referral to work through it.
