What Is Depression?
Depression is not simply waking up in a bad mood one day. Rather, depression is considered to be a mood disorder causing patients to experience a persistent loss of interest and feelings of sadness. Depression may also be known as clinical depression or major depressive disorder. Depression can impact one’s emotions, thinking, and behavior. Suicidal thoughts and a lack of motivation can occur in those diagnosed with depression. Factors that may influence the development of depression include a person’s brain chemistry, hormonal changes, inherited traits, and biological differences.
The Benefits of Depression Treatment
There is a strong mind-body connection when it comes to treatment for depression. A spinal misalignment can lead to roadblocks to communication between the brain and the body. This can interfere with the production of hormones needed to regulate the emotional and physical state of the body.
Non-invasive depression treatment can improve mental health and the overall function of the body. Chiropractic care can clear the body’s communication pathways, allowing the body to self-regulate and heal. Patients report feeling less depressed, healthier, and in less discomfort when undergoing an individualized treatment program for depression.
What to Expect from Treatment for Depression
After an initial consultation, our chiropractor will recommend an individualized treatment program that will take into account your medical history, current medications, and personal preferences. Chiropractic adjustments, therapeutic massage, and an exercise plan may be incorporated into this tailored treatment program. A series of in-office treatments are generally suggested for the best results. Patients often report feeling more relaxed and in less discomfort after a single session.
