Chiropractic care for Stress ReductionStress is a normal part of everyday life, and you probably experience some form of stress—whether due to work, family, or school—every day. While the occasional stressed-out moment is perfectly normal, chronic stress is cause for concern.

In the long-term, stress seriously hurts your health. It increases the odds of developing anxiety and depression. Stress also has a negative physiological impact, increasing blood pressure.

A chiropractor can provide non-pharmaceutical methods of stress reduction to improve your mental and physical wellbeing.

How Chiropractic Care Reduce Stress

Chiropractors are holistic practitioners, treating the entire musculoskeletal system from head to toe. Treatment methods for stress reduction include spinal adjustments, decompression, and massage therapy. Here’s how those techniques can help.

Eliminate Headaches

Headaches are the most common type of pain reported among American adults and can hamper everyday tasks, like driving or concentrating at work or school. Migraines are particularly debilitating, causing throbbing pain, light and noise sensitivity, and nausea or vomiting.

Spinal misalignment places pressure on the neck’s muscles, nerves, and discs creating tension that contributes to headaches. Through spinal manipulation, chiropractors correct subluxated vertebrae, fixing the root cause of these headaches. Chiropractic care has been shown to alleviate tension-type headaches.

Lower Blood Pressure

Stress and high blood pressure are linked. Chronic stress is associated with hypertension and an increased risk of adverse cardiovascular events, including strokes and heart attacks.

Chiropractic care has been shown to reduce elevated blood pressure in hypertensive patients. We also provide massage therapy at our Military office, which is also shown to decrease blood pressure.

Decrease Tension

Stress creates a reflexive reaction in the body, causing the muscles to tense up automatically. It’s your biological response, preparing you to fight or flee when you sense danger. This can exacerbate physical tension. Chiropractic care and massage can reduce such tension.
