Chiropractic Care for Stress Reduction

Written By James J. Hether, D.C. on January 18, 2019

If you lead a busy life, there will be things that will stress you out.

In today’s world especially, it’s hard not to be stressed about things sometimes. From pressure at the office to health issues, from financial woes to strained relationships, there are many environmental factors that can weigh us down. 

Luckily, there are many alternative treatment options to help you combat life’s many stresses. Let’s take a look at one of these treatments and how it brings stress relief. 

Using Chiropractic Care for Stress

Regardless of what you're facing that's stressful, your body will react in one of two ways: fight or flight. This causes the mind to stimulate the sympathetic nervous system.

This system affects all parts of our bodies. Noticeable symptoms to this response may be blood pressure and heart rate increasing. This takes blood away from vital areas of the body, like your limbs and the digestive system. 

The adrenal glands release hormones during stressful moments, which are comprised of a number of different chemicals. If these chemicals are released too often, they can cause long-term damage to the body.

Chiropractic doctors are trained to deal with bodily issues caused by stress. They combat stress by working closely with the spine, which is where most of your stress radiates from. 

Having correct spinal alignment is one of the first steps towards relieving the symptoms of stress. When the spine is out of place, the nervous system is unable to function correctly or adequately get the brain’s messages throughout the body.

If your spine is aligned correctly, your body is able to function more efficiently, which is critical to maintaining good health. 

Chiropractic care for stress results in a decrease in muscle tension, soothing of irritated back and spine nerves, and an increase in blood circulation.

Chiropractic Treatment: A Natural Stress Relief 

While it's almost impossible to cut stress out of your life completely, chiropractic treatment can help to reduce your levels significantly.

With regular chiropractic care, you will experience a loosening of the muscles and realignment of the spine, essential factors to keeping stress levels low.
