The Spinal Connection
The spine and the central nervous system inside really form the brain-to-body network that the body depends on. When your spine is healthy, your overall health may improve.
A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may be used to correct dysfunctions, helping you find wellness and pain-relief. Many people find they sleep better and feel more relaxed. Wellness is unique to each individual. As you assess your results you may choose weekly 15-minute adjustments to fight pain and stress.
At the same time, your chiropractor can monitor your progress and help you choose ways to release stress, such as these tips from Harvard Health.
Stay active – With your doctor’s approval walk, jog or work out. Work in the garden or try a yoga or tai chi class. Your mood will lift and your body will be pleased.
Be assertive – If that does not come naturally, consider taking a class. Learning to clearly state your wishes may go a long way to lighten your stress load.
Consider a pet – After you have done the homework to know if a dog or cat is right for you, think about adding one to your world. Research says they come with a big helping of stress-reduction benefits, along with all of their adorable antics.
Deal with loss – If you have lost someone, find a support group or counselor to help. Working through the sadness will help relieve tension and stress.
