Millions of people around the world suffer from mild to severe forms of mental health issues such as depression, anxiety, stress, and so much more. Mental health does not mean a patient is ‘crazy’ or automatically a person with schizophrenia. Mental health is a broad umbrella term that indicates that your body’s nervous system, chemical levels, and other vital systems are out of balance or depleted in some way. When you think of a chiropractor, you may not consider how chiropractic treatment might benefit a patient suffering a mental health disorder, but when you think deeply enough about what a spinal adjustment does, you will more easily see that a chiropractor can help.

Your Spine Affects Your Brain & Mental Stability
The nervous system, connected to the spine, is what regulates organ and brain chemistry. When the brain stem is obstructed by direct pressure, mental health problems can occur or worsen. Chiropractic treatment is not a cure for the mental illness itself, and a chiropractor cannot legally prescribe pharmaceuticals. However, a spinal adjustment can help ease the pain and overall symptoms that occur from many mental health-related issues, such as:
Boosted Immune System
Pain Reduction & More
Try A Chiropractor For A Holistic Approach
A spinal adjustment can help patients who wish to lessen the side effects of pharmaceuticals, to combat the symptoms of stress, and alleviate the pains related to their diagnoses. When people are depressed, have low self-esteem, or have some obsessive behaviors, sometimes the posture is ignored by the person suffering causing them to slouch. Poor posture is one of the major reasons most people experience chronic pain. When a person who suffers mental health problems is in an awkward position for too long, and over an extended period, postural issues, spinal injury, and other painful issues can occur. For an alternative form of relief to keep the stressors of life at bay, a chiropractic adjustment is a great way to reduce and balance the body and restore your brain for a healthier mental state of being.
