How to Spot Silent Stress Signals

By Sandy Schroeder

Stress can be sneaky. It can slip in and take root without even being spotted. Suddenly you have a lot more headaches or your jaw hurts all of the time.

Finding the problem and doing something about it can be as simple as seeing your local chiropractor at The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you. The Joint’s doctors of chiropractic handle health, wellness and fitness problems every day.

When you come in, you and your chiropractor can talk about work pressures, family demands or other issues that seem to be ongoing. As you sort through everything, your chiropractor will explain how improving your spinal health could make your overall health better, too.

A gentle targeted spinal adjustment may be the best choice to relieve pain and restore your overall sense of well-being. Then weekly 15-minute adjustments may keep you at your peak as you work on your stress issues.

Here are a few of the stress symptoms to look for from Prevention.com.

Headaches every weekend – As you happily move into the weekend with lots of eating and drinking and sleeping late, the sudden drop in stress can create migraines. Keeping weekend and weekdays level with similar eating and sleeping patterns could eliminate the headaches.

Sugar cravings – Stress can make donuts, cookies and cakes irresistible. Make the effort to solve your stress issues and choose whole fruits such as pineapple, apricots or berries instead of candy bars.

Strange dreams – Dreams that are positive are welcome, but when your sleep is disturbed as you wake up during the night, your dreams may take an unpleasant turn. Making the effort to sleep better as you reduce caffeine, alcohol, and smoking could result in 7 to 9 hours of rest with accompanying good dreams.

Nonstop itchy skin – Stress can stimulate nerve fibers setting off irritable itches. The more  you itch the more stressed you may become. Step back and start solving the initial stress problems and watch the itch go away.

Allergy explosion – When your usual allergies gather speed and simply race ahead, stress hormones may be triggering blood proteins that trigger allergies.

Stomach pain – Nerve pathways may pick up a stress signal from you and create stomach pain. As you try to dial the stress back, you should also consider ulcers, irritable bowel syndrome, lactose intolerance and food allergies.

As you work with your chiropractor to improve your overall health, and spot stress symptoms, you may want to lower stress with deep breathing exercises, mindfulness meditation, exercise, or yoga and tai chi classes.

Stop by The Joint Chiropractic to get started. Find out about the affordable personal healthcare plans that require no insurance, and the flexible weekend and evening hours that need no appointments. Walk-in visits are always welcome.
