Did you know… chronic stress can contribute to health challenges like anxiety and even back pain.
Why? When your body is in a constant state of stress, it produces hormones that can disrupt almost all of your body’s natural processes.
That’s one of the big reasons discovering healthy ways to cope with stress is one of the best ways to keep yourself well, and chiropractors may be the perfect healthcare partner to help you get started.
Why it Matters:
Studies have proven that chronic stress affects both your brain and body in various ways and identifying its presence early is a key way to maintain your good health. Early signs of chronic stress include sleeplessness, headaches, muscle tension, and joint pain. As it happens, chiropractors can help you overcome stress in a few unique ways.
Here are just 3 ways we can help you reduce stress…
- Reducing Muscle Tension: Reducing any built-up tension in your muscles can help sooth a tired body and mind.
- Restoring Movement: Gentle adjustments to the body can help you move your back, arms, and legs more freely and with less pain.
- Offering Personalized Exercise: Daily exercise is a powerful way to turn the dial down on that mental stress and up on your overall physical wellbeing (not to mention the effectiveness of our care!).
Even people who are never stressed out often start to notice an uptick in headaches, muscle tension, and difficulty sleeping during this time of year.
