August 01, 2021

Almost everyone will experience a stressful situation sometime in their life. But some individuals experience prolonged feelings of anxiety, which can cause various physical health problems over time. The effects of stress are well documented: high blood pressure, weight changes, muscle pain and headaches are just a few of the many consequences. With over 78% of people reporting stress that affects their physical health, you likely are dealing with a combination of issues yourself. Fortunately, a chiropractor can ease your discomfort. Here’s what you should know about using chiropractic care to lower your stress levels. 

Understanding What Stress Does to Your Body

When people think of stress, they likely imagine the racing thoughts that happen right as they lay down for sleep. But stress also has physical impacts just as much as mental and emotional ones. In fact, there is a long list of stress-induced health issues that you may have experienced first-hand: 

Stress can even hurt your immune system, leaving you less guarded against illness and infection. However, while it may sound concerning, know that there are solutions available at our health center. Chiropractic is proven to reduce stress holistically, and we see many patients who are dealing with anxiety. Here are a few benefits that you can enjoy with the help of our team.  

Destress With Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic touts scientifically proven mental health benefits, and mental health is no exception. Studies suggest that the release of hormones generated by a chiropractic adjustment can be beneficial for those dealing with stress. These hormones play an important role in relieving anxiety and associated symptoms, so if you’re struggling, you can turn to a chiropractor for help. There are a few things to know about its efficacy: 

  • Relaxing Appointments. Many patients find holistic treatments to be relaxing. We have a wide range of services, from chiropractic to acupuncture, and they often provide an escape from the rush of daily life. You’ll have an opportunity to discuss your health needs with a professional and focus on taking care of yourself. 
  • Promotes Physical Activity. It’s true that exercise can reduce stress. But if you’re dealing with chronic pain, whether it’s muscle stiffness caused by stress or symptoms of another disorder, you likely feel that such a feat is impossible. Fortunately, chiropractic makes it easier. 
  • Helpful Hormones. During an adjustment, your body releases oxytocin and neurotensin, two hormones that are known to reduce inflammation and improve your overall wellbeing. 
  • Better Sleep. Say goodbye to restless nights caused by overthinking and worry. Chiropractic promotes deep sleep and restores natural sleep patterns. 
  • Improved Circulation. Stress often causes sore muscles due to tension. Chiropractic helps blood flow to painful areas, which reduces pain.
