Holiday Stress Management via a Chiropractor

Share This:

Does anyone else get stressed during the holiday season? All the time commitments, financial obligations, traffic – oh my!

Did you know that a chiropractor may be able to help alleviate some of that stress? It’s true! They can!

Regardless of the cause, when the body is under stress, the its fight or flight response is triggered. Your sympathetic nervous system (SNS) is stimulated, which heightens your senses and increases your heart rate, which is a leftover defense mechanism from the time of our early ancestors.

Luckily we have chiropractors who focus on the spine, which is the root of the nervous system.

One of the effects of chronic stress is muscle tension and contraction, which can lead to uneven pressure on the skeleton. And that leads to subluxations.

Chiropractic adjustments can help ease muscle tension, which then can ease the stress on certain parts of the skeleton. Which, of course, can help ease subluxations.

Easing these subluxations — and achieving a balanced spine — is a very important element of managing personal stress.

Additionally, regular adjustments will help you deal with your stress better and help reduce your anxiety. A well-adjusted spine also helps boost your immune system and promotes better sleep habits, which also will help reduce stress.
