Chiropractic Care for Stress Reduction
The COVID-19 pandemic has many parents working remotely – and many kids learning from home. The stress from homeschooling, managing the household, all while working from home, can take its toll. This stress can do more harm than you might be aware of, resulting in a lowered overall quality of life.
The Impact of Stress on the Body
Stress takes a severe toll on the body, mentally and physically, and can lead to long-term illness if not addressed. Over time, this can lead to disturbances in the cardiovascular, reproductive, immune, and digestive systems, increasing the risk of high blood pressure, heart disease, and more.
It can also increase the risk of mental disorders like anxiety and depression.
How Chiropractic Care Alleviates Stress
Migraines can be particularly debilitating, causing throbbing pain in the head, sensitivity to light and sound, and even nausea or vomiting.
Chiropractic care is proven to improve migraine headaches. Spinal manipulation decreases the severity, length, and frequency of tension-type headaches. With this procedure, chiropractors use their hands and special tools to mobilize the joints and correct spinal misalignment.
Lower Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is an unfortunate side effect of stress. Over time, high blood pressure increases the risk of serious cardiovascular issues, like heart attack and stroke.
When you are worried, you convey that through your body. You may hunch your shoulders, for example, or ball up your fists. This can lead to back and neck pain.
Chiropractic care and massage alleviate tension in the body. It also promotes healthy circulation, improving the flow of oxygen and nutrients throughout the body.
