In recent years, a common concern among our patients at Keystone Specific Chiropractic Center has become increasingly prevalent: anxiety. Despite often not being the primary reason for a visit, many patients reveal experiencing heightened anxiety during their intake process. It’s no surprise, given the fast-paced world filled with constant streams of information and technological advancements that can often feel overwhelming.

At Keystone Specific, led by Dr. Bill Moss, we’ve found that upper cervical chiropractic care is exceptionally effective in addressing this modern malaise by focusing on the nervous system, which plays a crucial role in how our bodies respond to stress.

The Connection Between the Nervous System and Anxiety

The nervous system is the command center for the body’s fight-or-flight response, a primal reaction that determines how we respond to stress and danger. However, when this response is constantly triggered by everyday stresses, it can lead to persistent anxiety, affecting our overall well-being and ability to engage fully with life.

Upper cervical chiropractic care specifically targets the delicate area of the upper neck where the brainstem transitions into the spinal cord. Misalignments in this area can disrupt the normal functioning of the nervous system, exacerbating anxiety symptoms.

 How Upper Cervical Chiropractic Care Helps Lower Anxiety

At our center, we specialize in precise adjustments that realign the upper cervical area, thus ensuring the nervous system operates without interference. These adjustments are gentle and tailored specifically to each patient, based on thorough diagnostic imaging and personalized assessments. By restoring proper alignment, we facilitate an improved nervous system function, which can significantly alleviate the hyperarousal of the fight-or-flight response.

This improved regulation helps shift the body from fight-or-flight to what is known as the ‘rest and digest’ mode, which is the body’s more natural state of equilibrium. In this state, individuals often experience:
