December 2020 Healthy News from Wilson Family Chiropractic Help for Depression and Calf Cramps

Millville chiropractic care with spinal manipulation has some documented benefit in contributing to the reduction of depression.

HOW TO BE A HAPPY SANTA…
Chiropractic’s Contribution to Depression Relief

“It’s the most wonderful time of the year…” or so the song goes. Whether it is because of being 2020 or having normal holiday stress, the wonderful-ness of this time of year might not be so wonderful for you. Symptoms of depression (agitation, insomnia, anxiety, high adrenalin, high cortisol) are reportedly owing to an overactive sympathetic nervous system. A new study on the effect of chiropractic and spinal manipulation along with vagal nerve stimulation announced some optimistic news. These approaches may well be beneficial treatment options for depression by means of regulation of the autonomic nervous system which chiropractic care and spinal manipulation do at the peripheral nervous system level and extend to the central nervous system. The parasympathetic system in so doing is able to counterbalance the sympathetic system while vagal stimulation releases neurotrophines known for being essential for anti-depressive therapies’ effectiveness. (1) What does all this really mean? Come in for a Millville chiropractic visit for Millville back pain and neck pain relief and other spine related issues. Head home with a little more cheer. During this wonderful time of year, we want a happy Santa…and a happy you!

Millville calf cramps related to back conditions like spinal stenosis and disc herniation find relief with chiropractic care’s electrical stimulation.  

Millville CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Electrical Stimulation for Calf Cramps

Calf cramps are painful! Back pain sufferers with lumbar spinal stenosis or lumbar disc herniation often experience calf cramps, disrupting valuable sleep and daily lives. Neuromuscular electrical stimulation of the calf muscles susceptible to cramps decreased cramping. Just 25% of patient maximum tolerated stimulation intensity helped! It doesn’t take much. 55% and 85% were effective, too. The decrease in cramps was linked to an increase in cramp threshold frequency, too. A bonus! (2) This new study verified what a 2018 study found as well. (3) If calf cramps bother you, let us know at your next chiropractic visit. Wilson Family Chiropractic has a treatment plan for them!
