With the presidential race, tragic events in the news and school starting in just a few weeks, it’s no wonder that we may all be feeling a little worried or fearful this summer! If you have been feeling anxious for an extended period or if your feelings are hindering your work or relationships, then it is time to seek help. The chiropractic care, massage and acupuncture treatments offered at the Cafe of Life in Longmont can help relieve your physical and emotional symptoms of anxiety.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, 18% of the U.S. adult population, or 57,402,000 people, will develop an anxiety disorder that lasts for at least one year at some point in their life. Some risk factors that increase your chance of developing anxiety are getting divorced or losing a spouse, having been overly shy in childhood, close family members with mental illness, high cortisol levels in the afternoon and just being female! The NIMH states that women are 60% more likely than men to develop an anxiety disorder, and 35% will be between the ages of 30-44 years old. Don’t suffer in silence!
Anxiety Symptoms that Can Be Relieved with Chiropractic Care:
- Tension, both physical or emotional
- Low energy
- Lack of concentration or increased mental fog
- Nausea or stomach aches
- Problems with sleep
Besides seeking chiropractic care, massage and/or acupuncture at the Cafe of Life in Longmont to help relieve your anxiety, there are other lifestyle changes that can enhance the effectiveness of your treatments.
