Hi. I’m Lynette from PanicAttackRecovery.com People visit our site and sometimes ask about seeing a chiropractor for anxiety. Today, we’re doing a video to address this matter. According to the Canadian Chiropractic Association, chiropractors are extensively educated in the prevention, assessment, diagnosis and management of musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions and associated neurological system. They will recommend a treatment to help relieve pain and improve function, such as manipulation, mobilization, soft tissue therapy, exercise, education, modalities and rehabilitation. Chiropractors are also trained to provide nutritional counselling, as well as recommend injury prevention strategies. Many chiropractors have explained that there are adjustments that can help conditions in a very practical way. For instance, pain from an injury or bad alignment can bother you and contribute to your anxiety and irritability, so alleviating such pain will eliminate at least one possible source of your anxiety. Another important contribution that chiropractors can make is to teach their client’s various exercises to supplement their chiropractic care and allow clients to be proactive in their health.
There are also chiropractors who point out that our moods are regulated by our body’s chemistry. This chemistry in your organs as well as your brain is all regulated by the nervous system. Some chiropractors argue that misalignment of the first, second, or third vertebrae of spine can cause pressure in the area of the brain steam which can cause interference neurologically and chemically. Therefore, they argue that re-aligning these vertebrae can help the patient’s mental state. Our take, at PanicAttackRecovery.com, is that chiropractic treatment might be helpful if your anxiety is being driven by this precise misalignment of the vertebrae. And, helping you with physical pain and suffering can provide relief and reduce your irritability. However, generally anxiety or panic disorder is caused by something more than misalignment of the spine. We would suggest that it is most important to embrace the fundamentals of recovery that we and others would like to share with you through our various media.
