Some patients report a feeling of being "high" or particularly light and happy after a chiropractic adjustment. Let's explore why this happens.

The Chiropractic 'High':

  1. Release of Endorphins: Chiropractic adjustments can trigger a release of endorphins, the body's natural "feel-good" hormones, leading to a sensation of euphoria.

  2. Reduction of Pain and Tension: The relief from pain and tension after an adjustment can lead to a feeling of lightness and well-being.

  3. Enhanced Nervous System Function: By improving nervous system function, adjustments can enhance overall wellness, contributing to a feeling of being "high".

Supplementing Care:

To further support your well-being, consider incorporating Designs for Health supplements into your wellness routine. CogniAid™ is one such supplement designed to support brain health and mood.
