Managing Stress with the Help of Chiropractic
By Sara Butler
Stress is something you simply can’t escape. It’s literally everywhere, which leaves you with only one choice: Learn how to manage it. The chiropractors at The Joint can help because regular chiropractic care is a great tool in your fight against the stress of daily life. Here’s how stress can impact your health and wellness and how chiropractic care can help.
The Impact of Stress
If you want to define stress it’s not too difficult -- it’s simply emotional or mental tension, strain, or pressure that results from demanding circumstances or adverse situations. While everyone experiences stress, it’s also a very subjective experience. What is a challenging situation for one person may not be to another, which makes it difficult to really pinpoint a universal definition. Regardless, stress does seem to cause similar symptoms in people, such as:
- Sleep disturbances
- Low back pain
- Muscle tension
- Gastrointestinal issues
- Chest pain
- Lack of motivation
- Feelings of being overwhelmed
- Inability to focus
- Overeating or undereating
These symptoms can have a big impact on your health and wellness if you don’t find productive ways to deal with stress.
How Chiropractic Can Help
The chiropractors at The Joint can’t magically make your stress disappear, but they can help you find relief for symptoms of stress you may be experiencing.
When your body is placed under stress, the more sensitive it may become to pain as well as physical imbalances that lead to more pain and discomfort. Chiropractic care helps your body to find balance again, relieving joint dysfunctions and restrictions, and helping your body to work as it should.
Just the act of removing dysfunctions and restrictions from the spinal joints can help to reduce the physical stress your body is under. That’s because the physical stress of a spine with joint restrictions or dysfunctions can make stress symptoms even worse and make you more susceptible to the impact of stress in your life.
Don’t ignore the symptoms of stress in your life. Come into The Joint Chiropractic today for an assessment and learn how a chiropractor can help you and your body to deal with stress more effectively. After all, if you can’t beat stress, you may as well learn how to help your body deal with it the best it can!
