According to a 2018 analysis of federal data by the New York Times, there are now 15.5 million Americans who have been taking antidepressants for the last five years, almost double the rate since 2010 and more than triple the rate since 2000. One of the reasons that people are taking antidepressants longer is because the withdrawal symptoms make it hard to quit.

Chiropractic care is actually a more effective way to adapt to the stress in our daily lives. A pinched nerve in the lower portion of the brainstem can lead to depression. By correcting the interference of the base of the brainstem through upper cervical adjustments, you can help relieve the depression without the use of harmful drugs
