chiropractic help for depressionIt may come as a surprise to many that those who receive regular chiropractic treatments often experience mental and emotional boosts along with the physical benefits they receive. Doctors of chiropractic understand the coalition, however, as they know that every function of the body stems from the nervous system; including the brain and its mental functions. A study published by The Journal of Vertabral Subluxation Research reports that 73 percent of research participants experienced a “marked improvement” in their symptoms and their severity. Participants received postural analysis, exams, x-rays and chiropractic adjustments for upper cervical misalignment. Within just two weeks, the majority of patients found relief from their depression.

Besides chiropractic care, we recommend a healthy diet and some form of daily exercise. Studies have proven that by boosting levels of dopamine, moderate exercise can help prevent bouts of depression. Because depression can have detrimental effects on our physical bodies it is important that we view the body as working in conjunction with the mind and spirit and treat it as holistically as possible. Depression has been shown to cause chronic joint pain, gastrointestinal issues, insomnia appetite changes and may accelerate the aging process.

If talk therapy and prescriptions have not helped to completely alleviate your depression, we would love the opportunity to help. By examining you for the existence of upper cervical subluxations, and providing ongoing treatments, your chiropractor in Woodstock may just be able to lighten the load.

Super exciting to have my husband feel and perform like he was 20 years old again. Thank you to the entire staff at Innovative Health and Wellness.

I had been yo-yo dieting for several years after having kids, trying to lose the extra weight I had gained when pregnant. I tried just about every diet out there and failed at each one of them because they weren't sustainable. I was introduced to the Ketogenic diet in June of 2018 and thats when my weight loss journey truly began. I give credit to Innovative Health & Wellness by keeping me accountable in my weight loss journey with weekly weigh ins, support from the entire team and educated coaching. I'm loving my new lifestyle and finally feel comfortable in my own skin!

“Love this place! Stefania and Valerie at the front desk are so sweet:) They always have smiles on their faces, and are so helpful! I came here at the recommendation of a friend after being rear ended in a wreck, and having awful neck pain. I have to admit I was a little nervous at first because I am a very private person, and it is difficult for me to have people in my personal space, but the whole staff made me feel so comfortable! Dr. Orlando is so kind and gentle. He really puts your mind at ease, and just makes you feel better!!! I don’t know how they do it, but no matter what kind of day I’ve had at work, I always leave this place smiling:) Thanks for taking such great care of me!!!”*

“I have been going to Innovative for almost 7 months for weight loss and it has been an awesome experience! I have lost 60 pounds and definitely could not have done it without the support and encouragement of the staff! I go there every week for weigh-ins and blood pressure checks, and they have become like family to me. They go through my highs and lows with me, and keep me on track. It has been a life-changing experience, and I would highly recommend Innovative if you are ready to lose weight and lead a healthier life!”*
