Stress, Stress, Stress, Stress…and more Stress! Would you like to guess the number one reason why individuals visit a chiropractic office? Stress! Want to stress less? Hear what we have to say: Chiropractic is just not low back and headaches. Subluxation (pinched nerve) is what chiropractors find and correct. A subluxation inhibits the communication between brain to organ, cell, tissue, gland, etc. If the communication is blocked between brain and vital component of body, safe to say there has to be some component of stress involved. Now, if you’re thinking that stress is just something you “think” about, you are partially correct. If it was just something we thought about, stressing less would be easy to accomplish. If you are chronically thinking about paying bills, speaking in public, or passing your classes then yes, “thinking/emotions” will plague your body with stress. What about physical stress? Repetitive motion, car accidents, jumping out of airplanes, yes, that is all physical stress on your body. What about toxicity in your body? Medication, too much alcohol, eating in excess, can all be toxic stress on your body. These different types of stress (emotional, physical, toxic) affects the entire body.
From a whole body approach what can be done? Exercise and maintain your current day to day diet! Have your nerve system checked for possible subluxations (stress) on a consistent basis. Allow your master control system to function at its up-most potential. That is the key to stress less. Now, if you allow your body to heal and adapt from the emotional physical and toxic stress on your body, then you have nothing to fret about! Use signs and symptoms as a way to realize what is going on with your body. Weight gain, digestive problems, heart problems and many more are possible signs and symptoms that there is stress on your nerve system. To stress less make sure your nerve system is clear and free of possible subluxations. Remember, everyone was born to be healthy!
