Don't Stress! Your Chiropractor is Here to Help
By Donna Stark
I overheard someone making a comment the other day that was intended to be funny, but at the same time, it was a sad reflection on how many people struggle with their daily stress. This person stated that since becoming an adult, they now understood why their parents always seemed grumpy when they were growing up. I think I can safely say that many of us can relate, I mean, we’ve all been a little on the grumpy side when under stress, right? But nobody wants a grumpy parent or even wants to be one. Responsibilities and stress have a way of doing that to us though, don’t they?
Stress is unavoidable and presents itself in many different shapes and sizes. It can be overwhelming and a result of significant life circumstances such as poor finances or bad health. It can also hit in smaller doses throughout the day as well, showing up in the form of a hectic commute or a busy schedule for example. Although stress is hard to avoid, the good news is that it is controllable, and your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic is here to help.
Stress on the Body
Your chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic wants to help you keep the “parent grumpiness” away, but more importantly, wants to also lessen the health risks that come with daily stress. As more stress is placed upon your body, the potential to experience physical imbalances and pain increases. Over time, these high levels of stress can damage the body with significant health issues such as:
- Depression and anxiety
- Sleep disruption
- Muscle aches and pains
- Digestive problems
- Blood pressure problems
- Heart disease
