Chiropractic Care May Improve Mental Health

By Paul Rothbart

Many people have found relief from a number of physical ailments by visiting a chiropractor. Back, neck, and joint pain are reduced and range of motion improved. For some, chiropractic care is an essential part of their physical health. But the body is just one part of the equation. Mental health is of equal importance. But a chiropractor works the body, there can't be any effect on mental health. Not so fast. For some, chiropractic care provides benefits that positively affect mental health. Here are some ways that may happen.

Stress Reduction

A licensed chiropractor will look for subluxations or any other problems in the spine and joints and correct them. Less pain generally leads to less stress. When the body feels good, the mind follows. A sore back and aching joints are cause for worry and that will create stress. Anything that improves physical health may do the same for mental health. There are people who find stress easier to manage after an adjustment. Chiropractic care may be one the best things you can do to improve overall health, including mental.

Better Sleep

Body pain and discomfort make it very difficult to sleep well. Many people report sleeping better after becoming chiropractic patients. It is easier to relax when bedding down with a properly adjusted body. Better sleep contributes to better mental health, as well as physical health. In fact, sleep is one of the most vital parts of maintaining overall health. 

Lower Blood Pressure

Hypertension is a cause for concern. Worrying about one's blood pressure can create anxiety and stress. Regular chiropractic treatment may lower blood pressure. Some studies have shown the upper cervical adjustments may be as effective at lowering blood pressure as medication. With lower blood pressure comes less anxiety and improved mental health. 

Body and Mind Connection

The body and mind work together to maintain health and quality of life. The brain monitors all of the body's system and when one is not functioning properly, it will affect the brain and mindset. A chiropractor can get the spine and joints aligned and working the way they are supposed to. This can signal the brain that all is well and create a sense of well-being that improves mental health. 

Good mental health is vital to living a healthy, productive life. Chiropractic care alone is not going to fix mental health issues. But along with other forms of care, regularly seeing a chiropractor may help to keep you as mentally healthy as you are physically healthy. Consider visiting The Joint Chiropractic to see what they can do for you.
