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.
