A study published in The Journal of Vertebral Subluxation Research showed that Chiropractic is an effective therapy for anxiety disorders.
The study focused on the case of a 19-year-old female diagnosed with General Anxiety Disorder. She had suffered from headaches and psychiatric symptoms for two years prior to seeking Chiropractic care.
Her previous medical treatment included multiple visits to the emergency room, visits to private specialists, and thousands of dollars for tests and drug therapies including Praxil, Xanax and Celexa – all of which failed to alleviate or resolve her symptoms and all while she was in crisis for two years.
During the patient’s health history, she revealed a head injury during one of three car accidents she had been involved in.
During her initial consultation, subluxations were detected and she began Chiropractic care. After four months of care, the patient reported 80% reduction in anxiety symptoms and a 90% decrease in headaches.
A simple, non-invasive spinal screening ultimately provided the findings that made the difference: her spine was subluxated, impinging on the nerves and altering proper function of her nervous system. She was also able to resume a normal lifestyle without resorting to prescription and over-the-counter drugs.
