Stress and Chiropractic
Not all stress is bad.
A 30-minute workout at the gym for a 25-year old is good stress. The same workout for your 75-year old grandmother would likely be a bad stress!
Repetitive motions (painting the ceiling), postural distortions (falling asleep with your neck twisted), and whiplash injuries from a car accident are physical stresses. So are slips and falls. Even being born!
Mental (Emotional) Stress
Ever faced an impossible deadline at work? Or grieved the loss of a loved one? Notice the posture of someone who is depressed. Frustration, or a sense of powerlessness at work are common forms of emotional 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 the 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 (stress).
