Stress and Chiropractic Care
Did you know that many people use chiropractic care as a stress reliever? Obviously, stress can be caused by numerous things. For most people, it revolves around three specific areas: work, family (kids!), or money. For some, it’s all three and then some! When we worry or
work too excessively, tension is built up in the spine. This is not only bad for the spine, but it is also bad for the heart, digestion, metabolism, and the immune system. The bottom line is…stress is simply bad for the body and mind.
Stress often takes up physical space along the spine. Tension builds and builds, and eventually results in pain in various parts of the body. One of the effects of chronic stress is muscle tension and contraction, which can lead to uneven pressure on the skeleton, which in turn leads to subluxations. Chiropractic adjustments help ease muscle tension, which in turn eases the stress on certain parts of the skeleton and helps ease subluxations.
Achieving a balanced spine is a crucial element of managing personal stress. When the spine is aligned, the central nervous system is unblocked and can function effectively. This means that your mind can think clearly, messages are sent and received with precision, and
the mental stress placed on you is reduced. Nutrition is also a crucial component of stress management, which is why we also offer a wide range of supplements and workshops to empower the 100% family and help you to manage stress.
While even one chiropractic session can certainly do your body some good, the best course of action is to go regularly. Seeing a chiropractor once a week, once every two weeks, or even once a month can eliminate stress and help keep it under control.
