Don’t Let Anxiety Hold You Back; Choose Chiropractic Care
Jan 20, 2020

Don't Let Anxiety Hold You Back; Choose Chiropractic Care | AICA AtlantaAnxiety and depression can occur at any age, whether it be a seasonal, frequent, or consistent basis. These symptoms may only occur in certain parts of one’s life, or it may represent a specific condition such as a depressive disorder.

What Is Anxiety?

Panic disorders are characterized by attacks of anxiety and overwhelming fear, known as panic attacks. During a panic attack, a person may experience a wide range of symptoms such as pounding or racing of the heart, breathing problems, dizziness, weakness, chills, and nausea. Additionally, during a panic attack, a person may experience a feeling of being out of control and a sense of impending doom.

Chiropractic Treatment Can Reduce Panic Attacks

Chiropractic care can help in the management of panic attacks. Spinal biomechanical dysfunction and spinal nerve irritation may be implicated in the causation of panic attacks, as such dysfunction and irritation can heighten physiological stress and participate in triggering feelings of anxiety. In other words, if your body is already on high-alert status because of internal biomechanical pressure and neurophysiological irritation, then emotional and environmental triggers can more easily shift your adaptive responses into panic mode.


With regular chiropractic care, one can avoid such detrimental, cascading effects by detecting, analyzing, and correcting sources of spinal biomechanical dysfunction and spinal nerve irritation. By helping reduce baseline levels of internal physiological stress and restoring improved function throughout the body, regular chiropractic care helps mediate one’s response to anxiety-provoking phenomena.

Exercise and Managing A Healthy Diet

Chiropractic care can also offer reduced muscle tension and pain as well as improve one’s overall health-boosting one’s mental health. Implementing exercise, eating healthy, and engaging in healthy lifestyle choices such as adding a chiropractic regime into your life. By consuming healthy foods, the body will work more effectively, allowing for optimal wellness.


Nutritious foods help build healthy cells and tissues and help remove toxins that accumulate from metabolic activity. Regular, vigorous exercise could include doing at least 30 minutes per day of activities such as walking, running, bike riding, swimming, and weight training on a five-day-per-week schedule.


When you fuel your body with proper nutrients, engage in a restful night’s sleep, improve energy levels, your mental state will be able to shift to a positive one.
