How Chiropractic Helps Break the Stress Link

By Sandy Schroeder

Raise your hand if you have had a stressful week. How about a stressful month? Or, a stress-filled year? 

Stop right there. If your hand is up, and you are thinking back over the last few months, or more, you definitely need to find ways to give stress the slip.

Smart Chiropractic Move

A smart starter move might be a visit to The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you. The Joint’s professional healthcare staff of licensed chiropractors see stress problems every day.

Sometimes they are in the background, as individuals deal with neck, back or other joint pain, hoping to get back to their normal routines. Other times, stress leads the way, flooding the body with mental and physical hits.

Either way, when you come in, The Joint chiropractor will start where you are, and seek ways to help you find relief.

Stress-Relieving Benefits

Chiropractic zeros in on spinal health to improve overall health. Using spinal adjustments to correct dysfunctions often results in far-reaching pain relief, along with feelings of relaxation, energy, mental alertness, and better sleep.  Those “extra” benefits could be the crucial weapons you need to help you cut your stress way back.

Relax – As your body kicks back, keep the good vibes going with warm baths, long walks, time outside in the garden or the park, or your favorite music, alive as jazz, vibrant in concerts, or brand new as you learn to play guitar, piano, or cello. You might also meditate, using deep breathing to reduce muscle tension, lower blood pressure, and ease the mind.

Energize – If you feel new energy, use it to walk or run after work, bike on the weekend, or hit the courts or the green on the weekend. Stay with your doctor-approved exercise routines and keep them going. Each time you are active your body manufactures those mood-making chemicals called endorphins to help protect your heart, lower blood pressure and maintain weight.

Mentally Shift Gears – Grin a little, or a lot. If you feel more alert, find new ways to stay positive. Enjoy your favorite funny comedians, authors, movies or friends and remember to unplug for an hour, afternoon, or weekend.

Sleep Better – If sleep habits are improving, support them with regular sleep times, no screens, tobacco, or alcohol right before bedtime, and lots of soft pillows on a firm mattress.

As always, The Joint Chiropractic clinic is ready to help. Stop by and find out how simple it can be. No insurance is needed. An affordable care program is provided. No appointments are needed. Walk-in visits are welcome. See you there.
