Can Chiropractic Really Help Your Stress?

By now, you should be aware that stress is a major cause of chronic disease.

If not, make sure you check out part 1 of this series to learn about the long-term health problems caused by stress.

Despite the serious health consequences of stress, it is difficult (if not impossible) to avoid getting stressed in everyday life. So, how can you reduce and counteract stress?

Chiropractic care is one proven way to reduce stress in the body. 

Chiropractors can use a variety of techniques to help lower patients’ stress levels.

First, chiropractic care helps relax the body’s muscles.

Stress causes your bodies muscles to tense up. Tensed muscles can cause pain and distress, which only disrupt the body’s natural function. When you’re in pain constantly, even low levels, you’re likely also experiencing some stress as a result.

Chiropractic adjustments reduce pain, and therefore can reduce levels of stress. Chiropractic care has been used to treat neck pain, back pain, migraine headaches and more types of pain that may be contributing to stress.

Chiropractors restore function to the body’s nervous system. 

The spine is attached to the nervous system. Your body’s nervous system controls your movements, receives information from your nerves, and connects all the way up to your brain.

Sometimes, a part of your nervous system is out of alignment, which can cause feelings of pain, uneasiness and stress. When a chiropractor adjusts your spine, it can allow your nervous system to function at an optimal level, reducing stress.

In a 2017 study, every single patient tested showed reduced signs of physical stress after being treated by a chiropractor.

Yes, you read that right. Every single patient. Chiropractic is a proven way to reduce stress without medications or drastic lifestyle changes.

If you’re experiencing stress in your life, it may be time to consider visiting a chiropractor.
