Anxiety is a nervous disorder characterized by a state of excessive uneasiness. A phobia is an anxiety disorder characterized by extreme and irrational fear of simple things or social situations.
Anxiety is the most common mental health illness, affecting more than 19 million Americans ages 18-54. These patients make three to five times more visits to doctors' offices and emergency rooms and the Anxiety Disorders Association of America reports that direct healthcare costs and lost productivity of these conditions cost more than $42 billion per year.
The drug therapies commonly used in treatment for mental health disorders have recently come under closer scrutiny because of their poor rate of effectiveness and potentially deadly side effects, including increased suicidal tendencies in young people.
Any disruption in nerve communication in nerves and body tissues result in abnormal function. Chiropractors help restore normal nerve function and communication, thereby allowing your body to work normally and naturally.

Chiropractic care can help you maximize your body’s natural ability to function in a normal, balanced fashion without the burden of dangerous, expensive drugs.
