When Stress Builds, Your Chiropractor May Help
By Sandy Schroeder
Stress is tricky. All of us carry some stress day to day. But sometimes, when too many things hit at once, a sudden illness or financial challenge may make stress feel a lot heavier.
Wherever you are with stress, it’s important to find ways to let it go. Meditation, exercise, and weekend getaways can help us handle stress.
But sometimes stress goes deeper. If you never quite unwind at night, or even on the weekends, you may be carrying a lot of stress in your body as muscle tension.
Finding a solution could start with a visit to your chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic in your area. The Joint is staffed with licensed chiropractors who help everyone from teens to seniors seek solutions for their pain on a daily basis.
Your Chiropractor May Help
When you come in, your chiropractor will want to hear about your life, your activities and your medical history. Together, the two of you can begin to work on the problem.
Your chiropractor will explain how spinal health can affect overall health. The delicate nervous system that coordinates and controls everything we do is housed in the spine. When the spine works well, often we do, too.
Using a spinal adjustment to help realign your spine could relieve pain in your body, and it may help you let go of stress as your body releases muscle tightness. Many patients say that they feel less pain, new energy, less stress, and more mental clarity.
Letting Go of Stress
Wellness is unique to the individual, and you will want to evaluate your results. If you feel more relaxed and more energetic, you may want to use chiropractic visits to maintain the momentum.
At the same time, you may want to look more closely at the causes of your muscle tension. Finding solutions where you can, and continuing to look for ways to balance life’s stress, can be invaluable. As you lighten the load, both you, and your family, will feel better.
I have seen many families respond to stress therapy. As life gets easier, it often becomes a lot more fun. When stress lets up, you may find time for walks with your kids after work, or spend evenings talking and playing games. A load has been lifted.
If this sounds like support that you can use, stop by The Joint Chiropractic in your community and find out more. The Joint makes everything simple. An affordable care program eliminates the need for insurance. Weekend and evening hours make visits convenient. And no appointments are needed.
