Stress

What Can Chiropractic Care Do To Help Reduce Your Stress?

One of the effects of stress is muscle tension and contraction. This muscle tension creates pressures on the structures of your body, leading to misalignments of your spine and the other joints of your body. These misalignments cause nerve irritation, which then can cause common conditions such as; back pain, neck pain, headaches, jaw pain, and even high blood pressure.

Chiropractic adjustments correct these misalignments, reduces spinal nerve irritation, improves circulation, and releases muscle tension, which then helps your body return to a balanced, relaxed state. In many cases, these changes can be enough to get your brain to turn off the fight or flight response, and begin the process of healing.

A healthy, balanced spine is a key factor to effectively manage your stress.

Regardless of the source of your stress, its effects on your body will become evident in your nervous system. The nervous system is the organizer, controller, and coordinator of all your body’s processes. All your other systems, including the circulatory, respiratory, digestive, reproductive, hormonal, muscle and skeletal systems, depend upon your nervous system to work properly. Therefore, the most direct method of correcting illnesses should be directed toward balancing your nervous system and this is exactly what chiropractic and stress management care do.

While, chiropractic care cannot neither make your job less stressful, nor can it create a quieter, calmer world. Chiropractic care can however, help you develop a healthier response to your stress and reduce the potential physical damages caused by stress.

Anti Aging Tips

Five Daily Anti-Aging Tips

None of us are getting any younger, you can’t change your age, but you can change the way you look and feel by following a few simple guidelines:

1. Hydration is important for cellular functioning, so make sure you remember to drink liquids regularly throughout the day.

2. The phytonutrients in plant based foods are essential for health and wellness for our body and mind. Eat plenty of vegetables and low sugar fruits every day.

3. Rest is necessary for your body to run optimally. The way to figure out how much sleep you need is to think about how much you sleep on a relaxing vacation, when you naturally fall asleep and wake up naturally without an alarm. The amount is generally how much time your body is craving for sleep

4. Take time to have fun with loved ones. Social support and positive experiences are beneficial to your health.

5. Make sure to keep your body moving every day, even if it’s walking up and down the stairs at work or taking a noon time stroll around the block. Exercise is one of the keys to living a long and healthy life.

Drug Free Headache Relief

Drug-Free Headache Relief

(NAPS)-If you have a head­ ache, you may want to visit a doc­ tor of chiropractic care before you head to the medicine cabinet. Doing so can speed relief and help you avoid the side effects associ­ated with certain drugs.

Chiropractic care has long been used to treat headaches without drugs.

A report from the Duke Univer­sity Evidence-Based Practice Cen­ter in Durham, N.C., found that spinal manipulation quickly improved headaches originating in the neck, and had far fewer side effects and longer-lasting relief of tension headaches than a commonly prescribed medication.

Other studies have shown chi­ropractic care to be effective in the treatment of migraine headaches.

"Headaches can be debili­tating and deserve examination by a doctor," explains Gerard Clum, D.C., a spokes person the not-for-profit Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (FCP). "They could be a warning sign that something is wrong. That something wrong could be a struc­tural problem with the head and neck as a result of posture or injury.

Dr. Clum advises that instead of masking their pain with med­ication, people should consider a visit to a doctor of chiropractic.
