If life has got you down, there is a need to make a change. Chiropractic is a proven way to help relieve stress for busy people, the chronically ill, accident victims, and the elderly. Don’t let your stress levels get so high that you don’t make time for complementary medicine and get the stress relief you need.
Here are some positive outcomes to treating your stress with chiropractic care:
#1. Changes the body chemistry. Chiropractic is an effective way to relieve stress because it involves manipulation of the spine. When a chiropractor corrects the alignment of the vertebrae in your spine, spinal fluids begin to move up and down the column freely, exchanging important information with the brain.
#2. Gives positive feedback to your brain. Spinal subluxations can create pressure on your nerves and cause the extremities to feel limited. Take advantage of the body’s healing and restorative abilities by removing these subluxations through regular spinal adjustments, and your extremities will send back messages to the brain that they are feeling well.
#3. Reduces pressure on the chest cavity through better posture. When you receive expert spinal adjustments and stand and walk straighter, your lungs can breathe more deeply and expand more into the chest cavity. Consumption of more oxygen facilitates better function in all organ systems and promotes the body’s natural healing processes.
#4. Minimizes causes of stress. Your body can manufacture stress hormones from being physically injured, ingesting the wrong types of substances, or from emotional stressors, to name a few. Chiropractic helps you manage stress levels through adjustment of the spine, which sends messages to the brain to cease the production of stress hormones, thereby making you feel better.
Feel less stressed when you are walking upright after a chiropractic adjustment. Don’t get distracted by feelings of pain and stress. Regular treatments ensure that your body is in balance and that stress-related chemicals are occurring in lower levels throughout your body.
