While anxiety and depression are considered mental health disorders, they still pack a punch when it comes to their physical impact. More and more therapists are now recommending their clients look into chiropractic care to combat the effects of their disorder and even lessen the physical effects it has on their bodies.

Relieving Muscle Tension

Lakeside Sports Chiropractic Center and Motorsports Rehab has long understood the importance of relieving muscle tension for all sorts of ailments. For patients with anxiety and/or depression, they may not know how to relax their muscles, and need assistance in allowing their bodies to simply release the tension. It’s a fantastic learning tool for patients that ensures they don’t have to rely solely on medications and therapy to heal; they can use more holistic options as well.

Stopping Tension Headaches

Patients with mental health disorders often talk about their struggles with tension headaches and neck stiffness. Fortunately, Lakeside Chiropractic also offers acupuncture, which is proven to be a fantastic tool for alleviating tension headaches and stiffness in the neck region. This is a great opportunity for the patient to switch between chiropractic care and acupuncture care so that all their needs are being met.

Combats Multiple Issues

Many patients with depression and anxiety are the same patients who are battling a chronic pain disorder of some kind. Our chiropractors will tend to multiple problems all in one session, tackling the chronic pain and alleviating anxiety and depression symptoms. When this happens, it allows the patients to relax, and this release of tension allows deeper healing to happen. Sometimes, the best way to heal is for the muscles to relax.

Lessen Severity of Panic Attacks

Chiropractic care and acupuncture are both very effective at lowering high blood pressure, one symptom of a panic attack which can cause long-term problems for the patient. When the patient learns how to control their blood pressure and stave off an attack, they will feel more in control of their responses to triggers. Chiropractic care can help give the patient some breathing room and lessen the effects of anxiety sooner rather than later.
