How Chiropractic Treatment Can Help with Winter Blues and Seasonal Affective Disorder

You may have heard that a balanced mind helps create a balanced body. In chiropractic medicine, we believe the opposite is also true. Balancing the spine creates pathways for the neurochemicals needed to create a stable mood. Visit us at Agger Chiropractic and Nutrition to discuss how regular spinal treatments as well as nutritional changes can help create a more balanced and happy mood.

This is especially true in Portland, Oregon where many people deal with seasonal affective disorder

Dr. Simon Agger notes:  Adjustments help the mood by releasing natural endorphins. There is an immediate reaction and for someone who is depressed, this can be a life saver.  Chiropractic adjustments also help with lessening any pain a person has. Natural opioid like substances are released. In addition to the pain being lessened, you can also have an increase in energy when you increase endorphins and improve joint  motion.  The nervous system doesn’t have to work as hard and there is more balance. If you are not working so hard in one part of the body, you have more energy to work towards homeostasis. This naturally helps lift the mood. 

Chiropractic treatments help with the down feeling from winter blues as well as the sad mood we often feel as we go through the natural changes of life.

If you are in Portland and are looking for a chiropractor near you, we are on E. Burnside near the Laurelhurst Theater.

Talk with Dr. Simon Agger today about chiropractic medicine and the mood.
