In our modern world, in a time of war, a low job market and a precarious economy, it is easy to understand why the population is seeing a steady increase in physiological and mental issues induced by stress. Whether your stress is due to social, economic or other personal dilemmas, the toll it takes can be detrimental to your physical and mental well-being. For those seeking a natural avenue to alleviate their stress, chiropractic adjustments may very well meet and exceed your expectations for relief.
A chiropractor works primarily with the manipulation and realignment of the spine, which is the structure by the central nervous system travels from the brain to the rest of the body. When a person experiences chronic stress, a common effect is prolonged muscle tension and contraction, which can lead to structural misalignments of the spine. The adjustments of a chiropractor releases muscle tension, and that helps the body return to a more balanced, relaxed state. Adjustments also reduce spinal nerve irritation; improve blood circulation and releases endorphins, which are associated with pain relief and a feeling of well-being. These changes may be enough, in many cases, to begin the process of stress reduction. A healthy and balanced spine is one key to effectively managing stress.
Although chiropractic care cannot remove the external factors that have led to your stress and tensions, chiropractic can provide routine adjustments that offer the body and mind the opportunity for renewed state of well-being to tackle these external sources yourself.
