How To Spot Stress Warning Signs & What To Do Next
We all have daily stress, but when stress continues without relief, it can wear the body’s natural defenses down and put us at risk for serious illness.
Take a look at some of the warning signs and solutions:
Dizziness or feeling out of it
General aches and pains
Grinding teeth, clenched jaw
Indigestion or acid reflux symptoms
Increase in, or loss of, appetite
Muscle tension in neck, face, or shoulders
Cold and sweaty palms
Trembling or shaking
Weight gain or loss
Upset stomach, diarrhea
Being irritable, impatient, or forgetful
If you are having ongoing, severe stress see your doctor and consider talking with a counselor. In addition you can learn breathing exercises and use yoga, meditation, prayer or tai chi to relax and regain peace of mind. Exercise, healthy diet, good sleep habits, and time spent with friends, family and hobbies can also help to restore life’s balance. Skip alcohol, smoking and excess caffeine.
As you work on stress problems, seeing your chiropractor can be another way to find effective solutions.
Seeing Your Chiropractor
Chiropractors have a patient-centered, whole-person approach. They see everyone from small children to seniors. In the initial visit they will review medical history and ask about normal activities.
They believe wellness and routine chiropractic care should be as basic to our lives as healthy diets and daily exercise.
They offer the purest form of chiropractic care, providing full spinal adjustments using the diversified technique to check for subluxations, which are misalignments of the spine.
Subluxations are misalignments of one or more vertebrae in the spine and/or joints. When the misalignment is corrected it may have far reaching effects on back, neck and sciatica pain.
It may also help with allergies, TMJ, arthritis, headaches and migraines.
As a wellness clinic, the chiropractic focus is on daily stresses, aches and pain without medications or surgery.
I have known many friends and relatives who have found this simple, direct chiropractic treatment to be an effective way to stay healthy. Whatever challenges or tensions they encountered they relied on their chiropractor to help guide them through it. Most of them started seeing their chiropractor in their thirties and forties. They continued seeking help as they moved into their sixties and seventies, enjoying active retirements with hobbies, travel, gardening and grandkids.
If this direct focus on chiropractic wellness sounds just as great to you as it does to majority of the people in the U.S., make an appointment and find out more.
