Now that we are well into 2022 stress is still at a critical high point for many individuals and their families. April is STRESS AWARENESS month. Reports estimate that two-thirds of doctor visits connect to a stress causing issues. Stress also contributes to deadly chronic diseases like heart disease and heart attacks.
Stress presents a significant health challenge that every person must consider.
A smart, proactive health decision includes seeking a lifestyle that regularly builds resilience to better adapt to stress. Your quality of your life and health depends on the functioning of your Nervous System! The more you know about how your body works and take control of your health the better outcomes you will get. Help us help you stay engaged and on track with your health!!
How You Can Better Cope With Stress
Many proven lifestyle modifications help the body adapt and cope with stress. Three excellent choices to help counteract the impact of stress are:
- Rhythmic breathing
- Consistent exercise
- Good nutrition
One of the best and most effective stress- relieving interventions available comes from regular spinal adjustments. The spine engages in a unique and intimate relationship with the central nervous system. The central nervous system filters various stressors for harm effects. Individuals react to stress differently.
One person might withstand high amounts of stress yet not experience any significant health challenges or symptoms. Another person may encounter lower amounts of stressors but exhibit greater levels of pain, dysfunction, or disease. The brain and nervous system provide the filter that screens all stress. The intimate connection between the spine and central nervous system means that optimal function of the spine provides tremendous potential for stress relief and better overall health.
How Chiropractic Adjustments Help Your Body Function Despite Stress
If the spine becomes slightly altered in its alignment and movement (Subluxation), the function of the nervous system becomes compromised. This creates less ability for the body to safely filter out the effects of stress.
The research clearly shows that within just 1-4 weeks of subluxation without an adjustment, irreversible degeneration and damage begins in the spine and nervous system. Every day you go beyond this, you are creating even more damage to the most important vital system in your body. That is why we take your schedule so seriously because subluxation is the most dangerous health condition because it is the cause of dysfunction and disease in your body.
Whether you feel it or not subluxation affects your health every day, which is why correction and wellness maintenance is so vital to greater health. I encourage you to stay on track with your adjustments by letting us know if you will be gone on vacation or need to update your schedule, so you never have to miss an appointment.How #Chiropractic Offers Help and Hope as #Stress Levels Soar Click To Tweet
How Chiropractic Reduces Unwanted Stress
Chiropractic focuses on helping a person better adapt by making the body more resilient. Research from 2014 proved a direct link between a spinal adjustment and a reduction in stress hormones. Chiropractic reduces unwanted stress built up in the spine and nervous system and balances hormones by restoring proper function to the entire body.
Chiropractic does not resolve the presence of stress in a person’s life but does provide a drug-free solution that strengthens the body’s resilience.
