Depression Chiropractic in Waterford, MI
Depression is among the most prevalent mental illnesses in the United States and the entire world. More than twenty million Americans suffer from chronic major depression, while it affects millions more indirectly. Approximately 10% of the American population will experience a major depressive episode each year.
Depression and Mental Health
Unfortunately, many people do not realize they are depressed until many years after its initial onset. Furthermore, because of the stigmatization of mental illness in the West, many people are reluctant to seek treatment or have a fear of what labeling themselves as depressed will mean. This is part of why many people do not seek depression chiropractic care.
Depression can cause thoughts of harming oneself or even of suicidal ideation, which is something that should be avoided. However, even when these thoughts or intentions do not occur, depression can wreak havoc on one’s entire life and happiness.
Depressed people often are unable to enjoy life, including activities they would have previously enjoyed. They may have difficulty taking care of themselves, finding simple activities such as getting out of bed, brushing their teeth, or holding steady employment to be difficult if not impossible.
Why Chiropractic Care Can Help With Your Mental Health
Unfortunately, many people do not turn to chiropractic treatment as their first choice for treating major depression and other mental illnesses.
This is because the most common treatments that people consider when they are thinking about treating mental illness are medications and therapy. Although depression can be treated with either or both of those modalities, chiropractic works at the causes of depression to help people who suffer from it escape for good.
Depression chiropractic care reduces and treats subluxations of the spine for optimal physical and mental health.
