Conclusion: Results were documented over a four month course of care. Medication was discontinued successfully, symptoms of anxiety and headache reduced 80% and 90% respectively, function and Quality of Life increased. These improvements suggest positive changes in mental health function may be associated with subluxation correction from the application of chiropractic care. As anxiety conditions burden the U.S. with $42 billion annually in health care expenses and lost productivity, clearly this is a serious problem calling for full attention and broad resources. Research funding is called for to examine the benefits, safety, and cost effectiveness on the impact of chiropractic subluxation correction in mental health.
