Pressure on the job? Money difficulties? Health crisis? Relationship issues and many more environmental stress factors can weigh on a person. Stress is also generated internally by lack of sleep and poor nutrition. Fortunately, chiropractic can help! Regular visits to the chiropractor can help release stored tension in the body while relieving the symptoms of stress and decreasing the amount of harm stress can put on the human body. By working with the spine, the base from which stress impulses radiate throughout the body, chiropractic will help people cope better with stress by having the proper spinal alignment. Chiropractic adjustments release muscle tension, soothe irritated spinal nerves and improve blood circulation which can often alert the brain to switch off the flight-or-flight response so the body can return to a more relaxed state.
