Sure, most of us get the occasional urge to spend a bad day in bed hiding beneath the covers. But if those bad days continue day after day after week – there may be something else going on. That something is called depression.
Depression is more than just being sad or down in the dumps. It’s more like a perpetual state of sadness and apathy where your mind and body lose the will to perform your usual tasks and take care of your daily responsibilities.
Yeah, it’s not fun. But we here at Sandstone Chiropractic also know there are steps you can take to help combat it.
How Chiropractic Can Help
Symptoms of depression often stem from decreased health to your brain, resulting in changes in your mood and concentration levels. Since chiropractic focuses on the health of your spine, brain and other nervous system components, adjustments can help reduce nerve interference through proper spinal alignment.
A realignment takes pressure off your nerves, boosting your brain’s communication with the rest of your body. An added bonus can be a decrease in pain and improvement in joint movements. Active joints can, in turn, stimulate the brain to promote enhanced balance, control and body coordination.
In addition to reduced pain, a healthy spine and nervous system can result in decreased stress, increased concentration levels and an improved mood.
