Stress Relief at Back & Neck Care Chiropractic
Our Chiropractor Offers Natural Stress Relief Solutions
Stress does more than just make you jumpy, irritable or depressed, although these effects are damaging enough to your quality of life -- it can also wreak havoc on your physical health if left untreated. The good news is that the signs and symptoms of chronic stress in the body can be countered through a variety of modern treatment methods. Here at Back & Neck Care Chiropractic & Sports Massage, our chiropractor Dr. Pettet can prescribe natural, drug-free therapies to help you get the upper hand over stress.
The demands of everyday life can prove downright overwhelming sometimes, and the body's stress response can affect your health even if you're not conscious of it. Constant stress alters the body's hormones levels, taxing the adrenal glands and causing anxiety, depression and mood swings. It also suppresses your immune function, making more vulnerable to diseases (including cancer). Cardiovascular side effects can include inflamed coronary arteries (a factor in heart attacks), hypertension and rapid heart rate. You may also suffer from frequent digestive upsets, acid reflux and other problems. In other words, stress is terrible for your health as well as your emotional well-being, so the sooner you counter its effects on your body, the happier and healthier you'll be.
If our chiropractor determines that your symptoms are stress related, you may benefit from one or more of our natural stress-busting treatment methods. These include:
- Chiropractic Treatment - Nerve dysfunction from a spinal misalignment can magnify the effects of stress by interrupting the body's normal processes, while the muscle tension created by chronic stress can make an existing misalignment worse. Our chiropractor can make the necessary spinal adjustments to restore optimal nerve signaling so your entire body can work better and fight off stress more effectively.
- Acupuncture - Acupuncture can alter the body's production the stress hormones responsible for "fight or flight" symptoms such as elevated heartbeat, muscle tension and digestive function. Our acupuncture treatments could prove invaluable to your stress management program.
- Massage Therapy - Massage therapy is famous for its ability to relieve muscle tension, improve circulation, normalize blood pressure and boost immune function. Swedish massage is particularly useful for combating the effects of emotional stress and keeping your overall stress level under control.
