How can Carolina Chiropractic Plus help with depression and anxiety?
As a clinic focus on the health and wellness of both your mind and body, our doctors can work with you to create a custom plan help you reduce and eliminate the symptoms caused by depression and anxiety. From helping retrain your brain with neurofeedback therapy, to supplements and nutrition guides to help your body maintain the appropriate levels of melatonin, serotonin and more, we will create a custom plan to address your specific signs and symptoms.
When you are anxious, stressed out or even depressed, your brain cells can become overactive and affect multiple other areas of your body, including the production of certain chemicals that help to maintain and balance your mood, energy levels, sleep patterns, appetite and more. How these changes affect people can vary from person to person. Some people suffering from depression will find an increase in their appetite while others will experience a loss of appetite. Some may find themselves unable to sleep, while others will oversleep or feel constantly tired.
The goal of Neurofeedback therapy is to train the brain to change its reactions to different stimuli and situations it experiences to regulate these changes or prevent them from happening. During our lives, we have all seen how our brain can learn behaviors and retain them creating habits and altering certain responses. Over the years, many published studies have shown that most patients receiving Neurofeedback therapy are able to alter their behaviors and reactions, reducing and even eliminating their symptoms, allowing their disorder to be better managed.

In order to help your body maintain appropriate levels, our experienced staff will work with you to determine appropriate vitamins, supplements and nutrition plans that will work best for you.
