In 2011, 15.9% of Hispanic adults reported suffering from a mental illness the previous year. Thousands in this population however, do not seek treatment. The reason most likely being that the Latino community fears being highly stigmatized for accessing mental health services. Among Hispanics with a mental disorder, fewer than 1 in 11 contact a mental health specialist, while fewer than 1 in 5 contact a general health care provider. Hispanics are at a high-risk for depression, substance abuse and anxiety. About 1 in every 7 Latinos has attempted suicide. Chiropractic therapy has shown to substantially improve mental health, making it the prime choice for Hispanics suffering from mental illness; they are able to improve their lives without facing undesirable stigmatizing prejudices.
A Chiropractor looks at the spine for the cause of disease and dysfunction in the body. The brain and spinal cord control every function inside of the body, and misalignment(s) or subluxations, of the spine can put pressure on spinal nerves or the spinal cord itself. Subluxations cause interference in your nervous system (brain and spinal cord), not allowing for complete communication between the brain and the body. Communication breakdown is often times the underlying cause of many health problems.
The top bone in the neck is the link between your brain and the rest of your body. The top bone in the neck gets rotated out of position and causes an interference in the energy being sent down to the body (also known as mental impulses). These misalignments will starve the body from proper function, resulting in mental disorders. A chiropractor can find these misalignment’s, reduce them, and allow for the proper flow of energy from the brain to the body, allowing these issues to be resolved.
