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’s due to
being 2020 or having normal holiday stress, the
wonderful-ness of this time of year may not be so
much for you. Symptoms of depression (agitation,
insomnia, anxiety, high adrenalin, high cortisol) are reportedly owing to
an overactive sympathetic nervous system. A recent study on the effects
of chiropractic, spinal manipulation and vagal nerve stimulation announced
some optimistic news. These approaches may well be positive
treatment options for depression via 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 thereby is able to counterbalance the
sympathetic system while vagal stimulation releases neurotrophines known for
being essential for anti-depressive therapies’ effectiveness. (1) What is all this really saying? Come in for a Auburn
chiropractic visit for Auburn back pain and neck pain relief and
other spine related issues. Leave with a little more cheer. For
this wonderful time of year, we want a happy Santa…and a happy you!

Auburn CHIROPRACTIC TIP OF THE MONTH: Electrical Stimulation for Calf Cramps
Calf cramps hurt!
Back pain sufferers with lumbar spinal stenosis or lumbar disc herniation often
get calf cramps, interrupting valuable
sleep and daily lives. Neuromuscular electrical stimulation of the calf muscles
prone to cramps reduced cramping. Just 25% of
patient maximum tolerated stimulation intensity was helpful!
It does not take much. 55%
and 85% were effective as well. The reduction in
cramps was associated with an increase in cramp
threshold frequency, too. A bonus! (2) This new study confirmed
what a 2018 study discovered as well. (3) If calf cramps trouble
you, let us know at your next chiropractic visit. Dr. Le's Chiropractic & Wellness, L.L.C. has a treatment
plan for them!
