Boost Your Mood With Chiropractic Care

If you have found yourself in a negative mood lately, and can't quite put your finger on it, chiropractic care can help. Your mood and mental state can be affected by subluxations in your spinal alignment, lack of sleep, pain, increased stress, and poor overall health. Using a holistic approach to healthcare, chiropractic treats all aspects of your health. This can help find underlying issues that can boost your mood and improve your health.

Chiropractic care doesn't only involve spinal manipulation techniques. It also incorporates massage and other therapeutic modalities, rehabilitative exercise, nutrition and lifestyle coaching to improve overall health. Some of the ways chiropractic care can improve your mood includes:

Release of Endorphins

Endorphins are hormones that are released in the body when it feels stress. Exercise, eating, and massage are all examples of how the body naturally releases this hormones. Endorphins help block pain signals to the brain and helps with anxiety, depression, and making you feel good. Techniques used in chiropractic care such as reducing subluxations in the spine can encourage the release of endorphins.

Patients who receive chiropractic care will be able to exercise more and typically live a more healthy lifestyle- leading to the release of more feel good endorphins.

Better Sleep

Many chiropractic patients report an improvement in sleep following a chiropractic appointment. Techniques used in chiropractic care can help relieve tension in the body and improve the nervous system function. This can result in better sleep. Many patients who suffer from acid reflux also see improvement with chiropractic care, and in turn, sleep better at night with less symptoms.

Chiropractic care also helps with relaxation through pain relief and decreasing muscle tension. This in turn can lead to better sleep.

Improves Spinal Alignment

When your spinal alignment is off it not only creates increased pain and inflammation when you are awake, but it can be exacerbated when in the same position for hours at a time. When your spine is in the proper alignment, you nervous system is able to work better and communicate better with your brain and organs. This also allows the brain stem to produce more serotonin, a hormone that helps you feel happier and more emotionally stable.

Improved spinal alignment will also help improve posture. This can help individuals feel taller, stronger, and more confident.
