Chiropractic Care for Stress Management

By Donna Stark

Omne trium perfectum. There is a lot of history and meaning with this statement. It means “everything that comes in threes is perfect.” For some, it’s a statement of love and all things good. But for others, who have shortened it to “it comes in threes,” it’s often a way to explain away some rotten luck. Did your car get a flat tire the day after your dishwasher broke? Well, it comes in threes, so expect one more frustrating thing to happen, is the logic of this thought.

Stress can come in threes as well. And although this grouping of threes is far from the Latin definition of being perfect, there is a way to keep it from bringing you down.

Stress in Threes

Stress can be insidious, sneaking up on you without any warning. It’s subtle in its attacks, which is why it is so important to be proactive about looking after yourself. A lot of the health problems that many people face stem from these 3 major stress groups. Let’s take a look at a few of their examples.

  • Physical Stress - Past and present injuries, poor posture, overuse or repetitive movements, obesity, lack of sleep, and chronic pain
  • Emotional Stress - Worry and anxiety over work, family, health, relationships, and finances
  • Chemical Stress - Processed foods, sugars, medication, alcohol, and smoking

Obviously, stress can have an enormous effect on your body’s ability to function well. It can be difficult to manage, and treating it runs a lot deeper than just being told to “calm down.” Most people don’t even realize that their body is under a great deal of stress because the stressors that we face nowadays have really become our way of life. Worry and anxiety, the state of being busy all the time, dinners from fast-food joints while running from one event to the next … all of these, it seems, have become the norm.

Managing Stress with a Different Set of Threes

Establishing a healthy lifestyle with a nutritious diet, proper exercise, and chiropractic care is the perfect set of threes to start managing your stress with. Chiropractic care restores normal function to your spine and nervous system, which allows your body to deal better with stress. The nervous system controls every function of the body, so when the nerves are restricted, or simply just irritated, stress, anxiety, and pain can often increase. Your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic can help relieve this pressure on the nerves, improve their function, and become a vital part of your stress management.

The mind and the body are always working together in harmony, but sometimes a helping hand is needed as well. Reach out to your local chiropractor and find that perfect set of threes your body has been longing for.
