COVID-19 has forever disrupted how we live our lives. With the unknown comes extreme levels of stress. We have been seeing many patients complain of muscle tension and tightness, jaw pain, headaches…you name it! Stress causes a handful of problems and the body and requires the right type of treatments to help relieve chronic stress. Grant Chiropractic is here to help solve your muscle pain, strain and stress.
Stress Causes Damage to the Body
Stress will interfere with the way you feel and even impacts how you behave. More than half the population deals with stress and it’s become such an accepted thing by our culture. Stress is one of the most common factors related to a number of health issues from high-blood pressure to compromised immune systems. Misalignment of the spine is another issue that holds onto stress, making it harder for the body to regulate itself properly.
Stress not only causes a number of issues throughout the organs, it can also cause other issues for people including:
- weight gain
- smoking problems
- job loss
- sleep loss
As stress is linked to a number of side-effects and issues, it is wise to do something about it! While exercise is a great way to reduce stress in the body, we recommend visiting our Kaysville chiropractic office to schedule a consultation. We can provide several services from spinal alignment to massage therapy and dietary recommendations. Just making some simple changes to your diet and exercise routine can help to reduce stress.
What Can Chiropractic Care Do to Help with Stress?
Chiropractic care is designed to return the body to it’s natural state of well-being. Proper chiropractic care will focus on the spine, the base area where stress impulses radiate throughout the body. When the body is effectively aligned, patients are able to cope with stress easier.
Additional chiropractic treatments are used to help release muscle tension, improve circulation, and soothe irritated spinal nerves. Stress is not something that will ever be truly GONE, but it can be managed. Our goal is to help our patients have the best treatments possible to help reduce stress.
