Stress Management and How Chiropractic HelpsNovember 23, 2022
The holidays can be a stressful time for some individuals and studies show that 79% of Americans feel stress at various times throughout each day. Stress also plays a significant role in chronic disease. Stress manifests throughout the year through multiple avenues and individual health requires that people have a plan to remove and cope with holiday stress.
One of the greatest stress-relieving tools a person can utilize to deal with the weight of stress comes from utilizing chiropractic spinal adjustments. The spine maintains a relationship with the central nervous system. The central nervous system filters stress and determines whether or not stressors will cause harm. Some people possess the capability to withstand high amounts of stress without experiencing any significant health challenges or symptoms. Other people encounter lower amounts of stress but exhibit greater levels of symptoms, dysfunction, and disease. The filter which screens all stress lives in the central nervous system. The close connection between the spine and central nervous system results in stress-relief being one of the greatest benefits achieved through chiropractic spinal adjustments.
According to the American Institute of Stress, 44% of Americans feel more stressed than they did just five years ago. Many professions focus on changing a person’s environment to suit the weakened body, but as chiropractors we concentrate on strengthening the body to suit the environment. Nervous system capability weakens as the spine loses function in both alignment and movement. Chiropractic focuses on helping a person’s body better adapt and maintain resilience against stress. Research from a 2014 study proved a direct link between a spinal adjustment and the reduction of stress hormones. Chiropractic reduces unwanted stress build up in the spine and nervous system, thus balancing hormones and restoring optimal function to the entire body.
