Chiropractic for Stress
Stress is a large part of many people’s lives. Many people when they think of stress typically think of the work stress or relationship stress. In fact there are three different forms of stress and each of them take a toll on our bodies. The more stress we pile up in each category, the more our body has to find ways to deal with that stress, which happens through our spine and nervous system.
1) Physical Stress
Repetitive motions (texting, typing, painting ceilings), postural distortions (falling asleep with your neck twisted or slouching) and whiplash injuries from a car accident are physical stresses. So are slips and falls. Even being born takes a toll on the body!
2) Mental Stress
Ever faced an impossible deadline at work? Or grieved the loss of a loved one? Notice the posture of someone who is depressed. Frustration, or a sense of powerlessness at work are common forms of emotional stress. When we feel emotional stress, it is transferred through our nervous system, tensing the entire body. Imagine flexing for 12+ hours a day.
3) Chemical Stress
Today’s environment constantly assaults us with chemicals. Drugs, preservatives, tobacco, alcohol, pollen and a host of other substances can affect our nervous system and muscle tone.
When your body reacts by “tripping a circuit breaker” and causing subluxation, chiropractic care may help.
