I have been suffering from a mild but chronic mood disorder. It is hard to explain but the bottom line is I do not feel right or like myself. Lately, I have been researching chiropractic care and how it can help with anxiety and depression. I remember hurting my neck around the time and I felt the dark cloud come in. The problem is that I do not remember if it happened before or after. I have read that a misalignment can sometimes be a cause. Is this true? Are there specific chiropractic adjustments that help with mood disorders? Are all chiropractors the same? I also want to add that I hear sand grinding sound when I turn or roll my head. Thank you.
Let me begin by saying that not all chiropractors are the same. That is like asking are all dentists or all medical doctors are the same. In regard to your specific questions, I am sorry you are experiencing these symptoms. I believe chiropractic care is a great treatment for almost anything. It is a conservative approach and if it does not work, you can always find more invasive ways of treating something. With that being said, in your case, I believe the sand and headache when moving forward may have to do with the inner ear. Certainly, a chiropractic adjustment is still warranted, but have you tried any exercises or anything? Without doing an evaluation, I am hesitant to offer any sort of diagnosis, but on my differential list, I would include benign paroxysmal positional vertigo. If this is indeed the diagnosis, epley’s maneuver may help. I recommend seeing a local chiropractor for appropriate evaluation and care. All the best.
