Anxiety Tip

Anxiety symptoms are symptoms of stress caused by anxiety (worry, fearful thinking). Any method used to reduce stress helps the body to calm down and become less symptomatic. The less stimulated the body is, the less symptomatic it will be.

Chiropractic treatments aren't going to address the underlying factors associated with your anxiety, but can help to reduce the negative effects of stress caused by anxiety.

How helpful are chiropractic treatments?

In a poll we recently conducted, participants indicated:

Of those who tried chiropractic care:

  • 39% said they experienced no difference
  • 52% said they experienced little to great benefit
  • No one said they experienced complete relief
  • 9% said chiropractic treatments made things worse

Since each person is different, what may work for one person may not for another. We encourage you to use caution and discernment when trying anxiety treatment options.

The combination of good self-help information and working with an experienced anxiety disorder therapist, coach, or counselor is the most effective way to address anxiety and its many symptoms. Until the core causes of anxiety are addressed – which we call the underlying factors of anxiety – a struggle with anxiety unwellness can return again and again. Dealing with the underlying factors of anxiety is the best way to address problematic anxiety.
