Chiropractic Improves Depression

Overcoming depression and boosting your mood may be just a few chiropractic adjustments away.

According to an a November 2005 research article, 15 adults who were clinically diagnosed with depression and also suffered from upper cervical spinal misalignment were given chiropractic adjustments on three different occasions. Before and after the adjustments, each patient was given the Beck Depression Inventory test to determine their level of depression.

Results from the depression test show that patients experienced a significant reduction in feelings of depression.

This is great news, but what’s even better news is that chiropractic adjustments can do so much more than help people suffering from depression. Chiropractic adjustments help improve your body’s overall ability to fight off sickness and improve your quality of life.

    I suffer from depression (under medical care)and for the past 5 months I have been going to the chiropractor for a problem with my legs. It occurred to me last night that since I have been going on a weekly basis that I haven’t had the usual issues with depression. Finding this blog today was the result of a search I was doing to see if the chiropractic visits could be a factor. I am going to discuss this with my chiropractor to see what more I can do.
