Anxiety in Fort Worth

Chiropractic Fort Worth TX Anxiety

Anxiety in Fort Worth can be a normal part of life. However, people with anxiety disorders frequently have intense, excessive, and persistent worry and fear about everyday situations. We are here to help you understand your symptoms and help treat your anxiety.

Anxiety disorders often involve repeated episodes of sudden feelings of intense anxiety and fear or terror that reach a peak within minutes (panic attacks). These feelings of anxiety and panic interfere with daily activities, are difficult to control, are out of proportion to the actual danger and can last a long time.  You may avoid places or situations to prevent these feelings.  Symptoms may start during childhood or the teen years and continue into adulthood.

Examples of anxiety disorders include generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder (social phobia), specific phobias and separation anxiety disorder.  You can have more than one anxiety disorder. Sometimes anxiety results from a medical condition that needs treatment.

What are the types of anxiety disorders?

Anxiety is a key part of several different disorders. These include:

  • Panic disorder: experiencing recurring panic attacks at unexpected times. A person with panic disorder may live in fear of the next panic attack.
  • Phobia: excessive fear of a specific object, situation, or activity
  • Social anxiety disorder: extreme fear of being judged by others in social situations
  • Obsessive-compulsive disorder: recurring irrational thoughts that lead you to perform specific, repeated behaviors
  • Separation anxiety disorder: fear of being away from home or loved ones
