Can Chiropractic Help with my Stress?

Published April 14th, 2020 by Dr. Daner

To say that it is a stressful time in the world would be a tremendous understatement. People are very tense and there is a palpable energy and tension everywhere you go these days. As stress attacks our bodies, it prevents you from doing many things in life efficiently. Also, emotional stress can manifest itself physically in the form of headaches/migraines, muscle and joint pain, and neck and back pain. Chiropractors can restore function to the body and nervous system while also reducing muscle tension. 

Basically, muscles do what the nerves tell them to do. If your nervous system has interference and the nerves cannot effectively get to the muscles, this will cause muscle tension. Think of the nerves like a water hose watering a garden full of beautiful roses. We live in South Florida, where it is always hot outside. These roses need water, and as long as the hose is running, the flowers can grow. However, imagine someone puts a rock on the hose somewhere, which cuts off most of the water supply. This is the same thing that the incredible stress of the world is doing to your nervous system; preventing the nerve supply (water in hose) from nourishing the muscles (the garden of roses). 

Chiropractors can also work with patients on relaxation techniques and postural stretches to help alleviate the muscle tension and pain brought about by emotional stress. Sleep can also be affected by stress, and a proper night’s sleep is the key to a successful day. 

For all these reasons (and many others), it is so beneficial to see a chiropractor to make sure your nervous and immune systems are functioning to the absolute best of their ability. It’s a crazy world out there right now, and it has never been more important to stay healthy. Click here to schedule an adjustment with us at Markson Chiropractic today.
