The Mood-Boosting Effects of Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic table

Given the decrease in daylight hours that accompany the season, many people feel stressed, anxious or low this time of year.

Some experience seasonal affective disorder, a type of depression. Did you know that chiropractic care has mood-boosting effects? While many people equate this type of natural care primarily with back or neck pain relief, regular chiropractic adjustments can help improve your mood and overall sense of well-being.

Here are three ways:

Reduces Stress

Chiropractic care can help reduce stress levels. When you’re stressed, the gas pedal of your body is stuck on, sending it into fight-or-flight mode. This causes elevated heart rate and blood pressure, and your muscles tense up. Over time, stress can lead to headaches, digestive issues, and sleeping problems.

Regular adjustments can help reduce stress levels by calming the nervous system. This allows your body to get into the parasympathetic state and relax and begin to heal. As your stress levels go down, you’ll likely find your mood elevates.

Improves Sleep

Have trouble shutting down? Wake up feeling unrefreshed and downright exhausted? When you don’t get enough rest, it can take a toll on your mental health. You may feel anxious, irritable, or depressed. Getting adjusted regularly can help improve sleep quality by decreasing pain and increasing alignment, allowing you to get the restful sleep your body needs to function optimally.

Boosts Energy

If you’re experiencing pain or stiffness, you may lack the motivation to exercise. Routine adjustments can help alleviate pain and help your energy increase. That’s because chiropractic care helps improve nerve function and increase blood flow throughout the body.
