Chiropractic and Mood & Behavior

We’ve all had days when our mood wasn’t the greatest, and we couldn’t wait to start afresh on a new one. For the most part, it is normal to experience this kind of transient apathy. But what if those days are happening more frequently, and it’s beginning to affect the quality of life for us or our loved ones?


In many cases, clinical depression and mood disorders are treated with medications. The problem is that most of these meds must be taken for the rest of one’s life, and carry with them significant risks like suicidal/ homicidal thoughts. The great news is there is a safer alternative: Chiropractic!


There are numerous case studies that report positive changes in behavior and psychology in both children and adults following chiropractic care. For 15 months in 1930-31, 244 boys who were incarcerated in a reform school in Greendale, Kentucky, were placed under chiropractic care. Of those 244, 155 were considered “completely recovered or greatly benefited” by chiropractic at the end of the 15 months.


Teachers at the school noted improvement in the boys from their very first adjustments. Schoolwork, health, and general attitude all improved markedly. The teachers were so impressed, they voluntarily signed a petition asking for a full-time chiropractor for the school.


The superintendent of Kentucky’s reform schools wrote, “I have been able to notice a marked improvement in the mental and physical condition of the boys and in school work and conduct; also there has been a larger number of paroles during that period than any previous period during the past 4 years…We have been able to accomplish results beyond our fondest hopes and expectations in the rehabilitation of these boys.


If you or someone you love suffers from mood or behavioral issues, get them checked by your Kennesaw area Chiropractor today!
