Those kinds of jobs tend to bring muscle tension and irritation of the nerves and blood vessels in the neck.

What To Expect: 3 Stages Of Chiropractic Care

Unlike pain killers, which are what people often resort to when they experience pain or ache in the body, chiropractic care isn’t a temporary remedy. Like any other treatment, chiropractic care is a process which may or may not take time to see the result depending on your condition.

Chiropractic Care For Sciatica

Depression and Women: Things You Should Know

If you think you’re suffering from depression or someone you know is, here are some things to keep in mind.


1. It’s More Than Just Being Sad


People loosely use the term depressed whenever they feel down. But you should know that it’s so much more than that. Being depressed means feeling low most of the day every day and not being able to find joy in things that you used to enjoy. It changes your sleep and eating habits in a way that you either do so much of them or do so little. You feel hopeless and helpless which causes suicidal thoughts.


2. Men Get Depressed Too

Depression is not exclusive to women. In fact, men suffer twice as often as women do. However, women tend to struggle with it for the rest of their lives twice more likely than men based on the book, “A Deeper Shade of Blue: A Woman’s Guide to Recognizing and Treating Depression in Her Childbearing Years” by Ruta Nonacs, M.D., Ph.D.
