Study Finds Improvement for Depression, PMS, Dysautonomia, and Insomnia with Chiropractic!

A case study published in November 2016 followed a young 27-year old woman suffering from depression, insomnia, severe effects from pre-menstrual syndrome (PMS), headaches, constipation, and heartburn.  It is known that at least 16% of Americans suffer from depression.  Physical symptoms associated with depression such as decreased energy, fatigue, anxiety, loss of interest in activities, guilt, insomnia, helplessness, difficulty concentrating, heartburn, and physical pains throughout the body.  The exact cause and triggers of depression may be unknown, but what is very clear is that with depression the brain experiences biochemical changes and also in the nervous system as well.
Chiropractic care evaluates and corrects interference found in the nervous system by aligning the spine.  Since we know that the nervous system controls the bodies regulation of all of the above listed systems, it is clear to see how chiropractic care can improve symptoms of depression.
The woman in the case study was given questions at the beginning of treatment and follow-up questions after 3 months of chiropractic care to quantify her improvements.  After 3 months of treatments, she had a 48% improvement in her depression, 18% improvement in sleep related symptoms, 46% improvement in PMS-related symptoms, 18% improvement in headaches, and an incredible 51% improvement in digestive issues.  All because of removing subluxations found in the spine that changes the way the nervous system functions.  Chiropractic care has amazing results for symptoms you would never think of!  When you release the subluxation, the body is able to remove symptoms and function properly.
