Have you ever felt anxious before a job interview or taking an exam? Everyone has experienced anxiety at some point in his or her life. It's normal to feel anxious or worry once in awhile because it's a reaction to stress. In fact, a little anxiety can actually be a good thing. It can motivate you to study harder for an upcoming exam, pursue your dream job, and most importantly warn us when we're in a dangerous situation. But when those feelings of anxiety become intense, excessive, and overwhelming it could have potential to affect your work, personal life, health, and wellness. Often, drugs are prescribed to help relieve anxiety but unfortunately taking drugs only masks the symptoms temporarily.However, there is a solution to help relieve anxiety without the use of drugs and and that is Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care. Studies show Chiropractic Care to be an effective method in improving anxiety. Also with regular treatments it can also help lower stress, blood pressure, better sleep, and improve upper neck and back pain in many patients so they can enjoy a healthier and more balanced lifestyle. How great is that?

Upper Cervical Care for Anxiety
When your struggling with anxiety it can cause an impairment in your life ... not just psychologically but physical as well. It may be caused by a condition called subluxation. A subluxation is an improper position of the the first or second bone in the neck affecting nerve communication between the brain and body. Patients who come to the office initially because they're experiencing anxiety find out after their Upper Cervical Chiropractic Evaluation there's a subluxation in the body. The subluxation is disrupting nerve flow creating anxiety.Chiropractic Care can help address the stressors that are causing the neurological imbalances in the body. So, if there's a subluxation Dr. Gucciardo will evaluate you and if needed will than make an adjustment which results in the removal of the subluxation. Now, the body is balanced and in proper alignment. The body can now begin to heal itself on its own and become more relaxed.
