Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD)

It’s more than just the winter blues. It’s seasonal affective disorder (SAD). It causes severe depression and can greatly disrupt your life. Fortunately, treatment for SAD is available from us at Back To Health Family Chiropractic of Fort Worth, TX.

What Does SAD Feel Like?

SAD makes you feel not only depressed and hopeless, but also gives you physical symptoms like being tired all of the time, feeling achy, or having bad headaches. Many people with SAD think about ending their lives. If you are considering suicide, please call the National Suicide Hotline at 1-800-273-8255.

Comorbidities with SAD

People who suffer from SAD often have other health problems, called comorbidities. These include headaches, migraines, face pain, and neuropathy or nerve pain. Fortunately, many of the treatments for SAD can also help treat comorbidities.

Treatments for SAD

People with SAD often benefit from using a light box, which mimics sunlight. Regular exercise also helps to improve your mood. Exercise outdoors when possible to get any natural sunlight that may be available. Since stress can lower your immune system, be sure to regularly wash your hands and stay hydrated. Limit alcohol intake because it can interfere with sleep and make you even more depressed in the long run.

Feel the Atlas Orthogonal Difference

A Board Certified Atlas Orthogonal Chiropractor performs precise adjustments to align the top vertebrae, or cranial cervical junction. It is crucial for the top vertebrae to be aligned correctly for the whole spine to come into alignment, even if you do not have neck pain. When the upper cervical spine is aligned, the central nervous system can function at its full potential. This helps the pineal gland produce chemicals that affect mood. Dr. Chris Michlin, our Board Certified Atlas Orthogonist, uses the Atlas Orthogonal Precision Adjusting Instrument to carefully align your atlas bone, giving your body the relief it needs from stressors like SAD.
