Did you know that chiropractic care can help with stress relief?

Chiropractic treatment boosts the health of your nervous system as well as your musculo-skeletal system.  When your brain is easily able to send signals to the rest of your body, you are better able to cope with life’s stress.

Chiropractic care maximizes the ability of your body to heal itself.  Chiropractic care detects, corrects and prevents  interferences in your nervous system.

What is stress?

Stress is a physical and emotional response to a perceived challenge.  It makes us alert and gets our bodies ready for action.  It arouses our nervous system and releases hormones that sharpen our senses.  Also, stress speeds up our heart rates and breathing rates.  Stress tenses our muscles in preparation for movement.

Believe it or not, a little stress is a good thing.  If people didn’t feel stress, we wouldn’t experience much motivation, or have extra energy to act on that motivation.

But stress becomes a problem when we experience it for long periods.  Our bodies feel tired after trying to stay on alert all the time.  We need a chance for stress relief.  We need time to recover from stress.

What are some signs of excessive stress?

Fatigue, trouble concentrating, difficulty getting to (or staying) asleep, headaches, stomach upset and persistent nervous or anxious feelings can all indicate that you are under too much stress.  Weight changes may also be due to stress.  You might gain weight from comfort eating or reliance on unhealthy convenience food.  Or you might lose weight from skipping meals or losing your appetite due to feelings of tension.
