Upper cervical chiropractic has been shown to be effective in treating anxiety and depression. A June 2013 research article in Journal of Upper Cervical Chiropractic Research, documents evidence the upper cervical chiropractic (like the Atlas Orthogonal technique that is performed at Enliven Chiropractic) may be effective as a drug less alternative. The study examined patients with mild to moderate anxiety and/or depression and the presence of upper cervical subluxation (misalignment of the first vertebra in the neck). Individuals that completed the study expressed satisfaction with the outcome and that they would recommend similar care to others with anxiety or depression. Participants also reported decrease in muscle tension and pain and increase in mental clarity and physical energy.
