In one way or another, we all deal with stress. Whether it’s related to your work or personal life, stress is a part of life. Everyone experiences stress and anxiety differently; some manage easily, while others struggle to deal with the psychological and physiological effects.
If we aren’t careful, stress can take over, negatively impacting our daily lives and wellness.
Stress and anxiety can take quite a toll on the body. Illness, sleep deprivation, and poor nutrition are all side effects of stress. Stress also stimulates and triggers the nervous system, affecting the rest of your body. Luckily, chiropractic care can help you manage stress and alleviate its effects.
The spine is the root of the nervous system.
The relationship between our spine and our nervous system means the spine is a huge factor in how we feel, both mentally and physically. Stress causes muscle tension and contraction, which shift the spine out of alignment. Misalignment then compresses and inflames surrounding nerves, throwing the nervous system off. Spinal misalignments thus affect how your nervous system communicates with the rest of your body, which can lead to increased stress, illness, poor sleep, back pain, headaches, and more.
Through chiropractic adjustments, Dr. Crevar realigns the spine, freeing the surrounding compressed nerves. This allows for optimal communication between the nervous system and the rest of the body, better preparing your body to deal with the effects of stress. Regular adjustments promote nervous system health, alleviate back pain and headaches, and ease muscle tension associated with stress.
In addition to chiropractic adjustments, Crevar Chiropractic offers massage therapy to treat stress. Dr. Crevar works directly with our resident massage therapist, Jerry Tiller, to discuss each patient’s needs and develop a plan for treatment, helping maximize results.
Dr. Crevar may also recommend techniques to help you handle stress outside of our office. The following practices may help you manage stress and anxiety from day to day:
- Connecting with others
- Taking time to relax
- Deep breathing
- Time management
- Proper nutrition
- Reduced caffeine intake
There is no one size fits all when it comes to stress management.
