04 Mar Better Spine, Better Mind
Most of us associate chiropractic care with relief of pain and discomfort. We have so many stressors in daily life, including exercise, pregnancy, extended sitting or driving, general overexertion, not to mention occasional physical injuries. These are all common reasons to book a visit to your chiropractor. But, the benefits of chiropractic care can go well beyond the immediate physical symptom relief. Mental health, which is frequently impacted by pain, can also be relieved by the same kind of care.
It’s no secret that pain makes us grumpy. It can cloud the mind, making us moody, irritable and just plain unhappy. For chronic pain sufferers, it can even sometimes lead to long-term mental health consequences, including depression and anxiety. Getting a proper alignment not only reduces tension and physical pain but also boosts the mood, helping you feel better in both mind and body.
Working With The Nervous System
When spinal misalignment occurs, pressure builds, weight gets distributed unevenly, and problems begin to surface. Spinal misalignment can impact everything, including the brain, which is responsible for managing our body chemistry. This chemistry affects our moods greatly, as it is responsible for regulating them. In other words, when our chemistry is off balance, so are we. Maintaining balanced moods begins with balanced chemistry, which begins with proper alignment.
Ongoing Self Improvement
By engaging in regular chiropractic care, you can ensure your spine stays in alignment and that your body chemistry stays even-keeled, keeping your mind healthy and your mood stable.
If your mood could use a boost, instead of reaching for your usual fix, consider booking a session with your chiropractor today.
