Reduce Stress with Chiropractic!

By Sara Butler

Stress is an unfortunate part of life for most people. The causes of stress, as well as its sources, vary from person to person but everyone has the potential to feel its harmful effects. Your body is designed to react to stress to keep your safe. It’s called the fight or flight response, and while it came in handy to our cave-dwelling ancestors that had to escape from predators, it’s not as helpful to us. That’s because your body can’t tell the difference between a sabretooth tiger and being stuck in a traffic jam -- the stress is all the same. That’s why you must find ways to control stress in your life and the chiropractors at The Joint Chiropractic are here to help you do just that!

What Causes Stress?

The first step to controlling stress is to identify what is causing it. The world today is hectic and there are a diverse number of things that can cause stress in your life. Maybe it’s lack of sleep, injury, or illness. It could be your job or family commitments. Whatever it is that’s driving your stress level up, the first step to doing something about it is identifying it.

How Stress Impacts You

An increased stress level can have a major impact on your health and wellness. The higher your stress levels, the higher your stress hormone levels. These hormones can cause your blood pressure to rise, increase your heart rate, and start you down the road to bigger problems, such as cardiovascular disease. You may also experience stomach problems, difficulty sleeping (which is a vicious cycle!), headaches, depression, and fatigue.

How Your Chiropractor Can Help

When a chiropractor at The Joint works with you to create a treatment plan, they’re working to help your body work optimally. When your body is able to work at its very best, then it makes handling stress easier. Chiropractic care also helps to relieve the muscle tension and muscle imbalance that can be a direct result of stress in your life. Removing the joint restrictions and dysfunctions you may be experiencing improves function, increase circulation, and reduces nerve irritation. When you feel great, then stress is much easier to tackle!

If you have a lot of stress in your life, discuss it with the chiropractors at The Joint. Consulting them is the first step to overcoming the sources of stress in your life, improving your mental health and physical health too!
