Stressed Out? Chiropractic Care Can Help!

If you are like millions of other Americans, you experience stress regularly. Continual stress takes its toll on your physical and mental wellbeing. Left untreated or poorly treated, chronic stress can result in anxiety, depression, and even serious health issues. Fortunately, chiropractic care can relieve stress and alleviate many of its symptoms and complications. 

About seven out of ten people said they experienced stress in a survey by the American Psychological Association. Symptoms of stress include irritability or anger, fatigue, changes in sleep habits and feeling overwhelmed. Stress can cause a variety of health problems, including neck and back pain, headaches, migraines and more, because of its effects on your musculoskeletal system.

When you experience, your muscles tense up. This is your body’s way of guarding against potential injury and pain. Sudden stress causes all your muscles to tense up all at once then relax once the danger has passed. Chronic stress causes your muscles to stay tense.

Chattanooga Chiropractor Discusses Ways Chiropractic Care Relieves Stress

Pain and stress create a viscous cycle: Pain can cause stress and stress can cause pain. Our chiropractor can reduce many types of pain that lead to stress; he can also help you reduce the effects of stress, including pain.

Physical exercise reduces stress but muscle, joint or back pain may prevent you from getting the exercise you need to ease stress. Chiropractic care, especially spinal decompression, is your first line of defense for alleviating the discomfort that interferes with healthy physical activity. Our chiropractor can teach you how to do corrective exercises that strengthen your body and correct any irregularities that cause you pain and stress.

A chiropractor can also provide lifestyle advice that helps you reduce stress. We may recommend trading a specific stress-inducing activity for a stress-reducing one, for example, or provide nutritional counseling to help you choose foods known to alleviate stress.

If you suffer from stress, make an appointment with our Chattanooga chiropractor.
