Stress Treatment

Not all stress is bad.  For example, a 20-minute workout at the gym for a fit 25-year old is good stress. The same workout for your 75-year old grandmother would likely be a negative stress! Instead of fainting or going unconscious, think of a vertebral subluxation as your body’s attempt at managing stress.

The three types of stress that chiropractic can help with are:

  • Physical Stress – Repetitive motions (painting the ceiling), postural distortions (falling asleep with your neck twisted) and whiplash injuries from a car accident are examples of physical stresses. So are slips and falls. Even the birthing process!
  • Mental Stress – Ever faced a tough deadline at work? Or grieved the loss of a loved one? Notice the posture of someone who is depressed or down. Frustration, or a sense of powerlessness at work are common forms of emotional stress.
  • Chemical Stress – Today’s environment constantly assaults us with chemicals. Drugs, preservatives, tobacco, alcohol, pollen and a host of other substances can affect our nervous system and muscle tone.

When your body reacts by “tripping a circuit breaker” and causing vertebral subluxation, chiropractic care may help. Stress can’t be eliminated, but regular chiropractic care may help you better accommodate and adapt to it.
