Chiropractic care helps treat many ailments but is also an effective tool for stress management. Stress can cause muscles to tense up, joints to ache, and other related musculoskeletal conditions, which our chiropractor can treat. However, if not properly managed, stress can cause chronic conditions and problems for the body, requiring additional, long-term treatment. Our chiropractor can help release trapped tension, ensure everything is aligned correctly in your body, and develop a stress management plan for you. The chiropractic care staff at Acosta Chiropractic Inc. helps residents of Riverside, Corona, Norco, and San Bernardino find long-term relief from their stress.
How Stress Affects Our Health
Stress often has other effects on our body and overall health, caused by chronic and debilitating stress. Common causes of chronic stress include:
- Depression and anxiety
- Traumatic events
- Taking care of a sick or elderly parent
- Consistent exposure to negativity
- Chronic exposure to blue light from electronics
- Pool health habits, such as diet, exercise, and sleep
- Having a chronic illness
When the body is in a constant state of stress, it can affect the body by not allowing it to repair itself or getting enough rest. Chronic stress can break down vital cellular processes, manifest diseases, or negatively affect certain organ functions. Those with chronic anxiety also experience issues related to heart diseases, depression, and diabetes.
Stress Management Techniques
Good health also includes the ability to manage our stress, which for some may feel more challenging than others. However, we can tune into our bodies and help relax from within with some practice. Some great holistic tools to help with stress management include:
- Having better time management skills
- Reducing screen time
- Spending less time on social media
- Getting regular exercise
- Maintaining a proper diet
- Developing better sleep habits
- Receiving chiropractic care
How Our Chiropractor Can Help with Stress Management
Our chiropractor can help with stress management using various techniques, including spinal alignment and adjustments. Additionally, chiropractic care can help deal with internal imbalances, which often contribute to and intensify external stress. For example, a misaligned spine can limit your body’s ability to be fully relaxed. A chiropractor can adjust your spine, helping your body relax.
