The normal stressors of day to day life have a huge impact on our health. Whether it‘s work stress or family problems, stress effects every part of the body. When we are stressed, our bodies release a hormone called cortisol that causes weight gain and fatigue. In addition to the mental and emotional symptoms of stress, there are also physical symptoms. Chiropractic care can help alleviate the effects of chronic stress.
Chiropractic Stress Relief
Seeking chiropractic care provides stress relief by “resetting” your body. Chiropractic treatment improves nervous system communication and boosts the immune system. The symptoms of stress include:
- Back pain
- Digestive problems
- Weight changes
Some of these symptoms occur as stress wreaks havoc on your immune system. Chiropractic adjustments can alleviate these symptoms by improving immune system function. Regular chiropractor visits also improve the connection between the mind and body. When the spine is aligned properly, the brain and organs are more able to receive messages from the central nervous system. This leads to improved sleep and increased daytime energy.
In addition to spinal adjustments, your chiropractor may also help you manage your stress through proper nutrition and exercises. Chiropractors are trained in numerous therapies, and they are experts when it comes to helping you feel your best by improving and maintaining your overall wellness.
