How a Chiropractor Can Improve Your Mental Health, Manhattan, New York

Many people visit a chiropractor when they’re dealing with neck or back pain, but there are plenty of mental health benefits to this type of care as well. If you’ve been experiencing depression or anxiety, chiropractic therapy can reduce the symptoms and alleviate the discomfort that exacerbates them. Below is a brief overview of how physical pain affects well-being and how a professional can help. 

How Physical Pain Affects Mental Health

It’s common for chronic pain to cause feelings of depression, anxiety, and hopelessness. Those with the condition tend to have a hard time falling asleep, staying motivated, socializing, and having the energy to pursue activities they used to enjoy. As such, the lack of rest and fulfillment diminishes one’s morale. Also, since the nervous system helps to regulate mood, issues of spinal misalignment further contribute to one’s temper and mindset. And, as the condition tends to lead to neck and back pain, it promotes the cycle of grief and discomfort.

How a Chiropractor Can Help

chiropractorThrough adjustments, a chiropractor realigns the spine, alleviating pressure from the brain stem and allowing the body to better regulate mood. The treatment also relieves neck and back pain, releases tension, and promotes greater mobility. Moreover, a professional will teach you exercises to practice at home, like hip flexors and gluteal stretches, to stay limber and prevent the symptoms from flaring up again.
