How Stress Affects The Body
Gresham locals can sometimes underestimate the real effects stress can have. Stress affects your body in a negative way, so finding a release is crucial. Stress can cause your heart rate, blood volume, and blood pressure to increase. When you’re stressed the adrenal glands also issue a cocktail of chemicals, including adrenaline, epinephrine, and norepinephrine, which over time can wreak havoc on a person’s health. Persistent tension can also cause muscles to contract and the spine to become locked in an abnormal position, interfering with the nervous system’s proper functioning. This can impair the body’s immune response and slow healing.
How Chiropractic Care Helps Reduce Stress
Chiropractic training equips doctors with powerful tools to alleviate the effects of stress. By working with the spine, the base from which stress impulses radiate throughout the body, a chiropractor can help their patients cope better with stress. Chiropractic adjustments release muscle tension, soothe irritated spinal nerves and improve blood circulation—changes that can often alert the brain to switch off the fight-or-flight response so the body can return to a more relaxed state. A chiropractor can also recommend nutritional supplementation, rehabilitative exercises, deep-tissue massage, relaxation techniques, and postural changes to help patients manage stress.
