Dealing with anxiety can sometimes be overwhelming, especially during a transitionary period in your life. Whether it is stress from a new job, relationship, school, or change in your family situation, anxiety can take over and make you act irrationally.

What is Anxiety?

Anxiety is a general term that can refer to a variety of diseases and symptoms, each related to an excessive fear of something. Most people associate anxiety with a fear of social situations and crowds, and while many people with anxiety feel uncomfortable in those situations, that doesn’t apply to everyone.

If you have one of the following symptoms, you may have anxiety:

  • Listlessness and apprehension
  • Physical or mental tension
  • Restlessness
  • Twitching
  • Constantly thinking about negative situations occurring
  • High heartbeat
  • Shortness of breath
  • Sweating
  • Frequent headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Insomnia
  • Irritated stomach

How Can Chiropractors Help People with Anxiety?

Chiropractic care for anxiety involves relaxing the body and relieving tension, improving blood flow, improving nerve endings, and restoring nerve connections. By fixing your joint mobility and flexibility, your body will feel more at ease throughout the day, likely alleviating some physical symptoms of anxiety.

Chiropractic treatment for people with anxiety mainly centers around optimizing the tone and function of your nervous system. Torque Release Technique (TRT) can also be used to alleviate neurological stress in the nervous system by reducing stress and subluxations in the spine.
